Its emphasis is on real-world examples and applications of computer-generated interactive information visualization. Information Visualization deals with the representation and presentation of concepts and data in a meaningful way. Depending on the medium used, information can be visualized in either traditional static form (e.g. a graph on a printed page) or the more recent and powerful interactive and dynamic forms that this book emphasizes." "This book is appropriate for students taking courses on information visualization, human-computer interaction, business information technology, and computer graphics. It is also appropriate for professionals in many areas: the Chief Executive Officer will be able to suggest ways of communicating ideas and concepts; decision makers will be exposed to new and potentially effective tools; investigative analysts, scientists and engineers will realize new ways of examining their data; and interaction designers will become familiar with the latest interactive visualization techniques."--Jacket." ;
