About this book


This unique, multi-disciplinary volume provides an insight into an active and vital area of research – Interactive Visualization. Interactive Visualization enables the development of new scientific techniques to view data, and to use interaction capabilities to interrogate and navigate through datasets and better communicate the results.

A wide range of topics are covered in this important new book, representing the state of the art in this research area and providing a special emphasis on:

• Advanced data representation;

• Integration of visualization and modelling techniques;

• Novel user interfaces for data exploration and analysis;

• Virtual environments and collaborative visualization;

• Design and evaluation of interactive visualization tools and systems.

Students and researchers in scientific and information visualization, virtual reality, human-computer interaction, interface and interaction design, computer graphics and multimedia will find the book an excellent survey of this exciting field.

From the reviews:

"This timely book intends, as the title suggests, to provide a state-of-the-art survey of the field of interactive visualization. A dozen chapters, contributed by various researchers, have been structured into four areas … . Overall, the book is interesting and many of the chapters offer useful information for designing effective interactive visualization." (Xianjun Sam Zheng, ACM Computing Reviews, June, 2009)
