Product Description

From the Back Cover

Geographic Visualization is a state–of–the–art review of the latest developments in the subject. It examines how new concepts, methods and tools can be creatively applied to solve problems relevant to a wide range of topics.  The text covers the impact of three–dimensional displays on user interaction along with the potentialities in animation and clearly explains how to create temporally sensitive visualizations. It also explores the potential for handling mobile data and representing uncertainty; as well as the role of participatory visualization systems and exploratory methods.

Chapters are written by leading scholars and researchers in a range of cognate fields, including, cartography, GIScience, architecture, art, urban planning and computer graphics with case studies drawn from Europe, North America and Australia

  • Richly illustrated in full colour throughout, including numerous relevant case studies and accessible discussions of important visualization concepts to enable clearer understanding for non–technical audiences.
  • An introduction to the diverse forms of geographic visualization which draws upon a number of theoretical perspectives and disciplines to provide an insightful commentary on new methods, techniques and tools.
  • This book will be invaluable to graduate students, researchers and professionals working in the geographic information sector, computer graphics and cartography

go beyond Google Earth 28 Jun. 2008
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Perhaps you have been a fascinated user of Google Earth. Or similar products made available on the web by competitors. The subject of this book is the future of geography. Involving massive databases and a high level of user interactivity.

The book shows what is now being done by various research and industrial groups, to understand and use such geo-linked data. Accompanied by numerous diagrams, especially in colour. These convey the richness of the information, and take advantage of the human hardwired ability to use the eye to analyse scads of data.

Plus, for those pondering starting a company that amasses or, more likely, use such information, you may get inspiration.
