About this book

This text reviews the evolution of the field of visualization, providing innovative examples from various disciplines, highlighting the important role that visualization plays in extracting and organizing the concepts found in complex data. Features: presents a thorough introduction to the discipline of knowledge visualization, its current state of affairs and possible future developments; examines how tables have been used for information visualization in historical textual documents; discusses the application of visualization techniques for knowledge transfer in business relationships, and for the linguistic exploration and analysis of sensory descriptions; investigates the use of visualization to understand orchestral music scores, the optical theory behind Renaissance art, and to assist in the reconstruction of an historic church; describes immersive 360 degree stereographic visualization, knowledge-embedded embodied interaction, and a novel methodology for the analysis of architectural forms.

Reviews

“This may be the most readable anthology that I have ever read. Kudos to the editors, who must have turned a global kaleidoscope of writing styles into an incredibly consistent example of best practices for technical writing, worthy of use for teaching good writing. In fact, from the top-down, the organization, syntax, and even the vocabulary are strikingly clear.” (Chaim Scheff, ACM Computing Reviews, Apr 12 2013, Review #: CR141132)
