Human-Computer Interface

  • Roger Hubbold


This chapter deals with Human-Computer Interface (HCI) issues in relation to visualization. Following the introductory sections, the chapter is structured into two main parts: first, user issues are addressed, relating to cognition, perception, human factors and organization, then system issues are highlighted in the context of these user requirements. The chapter concludes with recommendations for future work.
