Product Description

From the Back Cover

Information Visualization

Design for Interaction

Second Edition

 

Robert Spence

 

“Spence has completely reorganized the material, creating a significant revision that hinges on the three main concepts of representation, presentation, and interaction. […] He writes with clarity and insight, carefully explaining the important ideas of the field as well as their significance.” 

~ From the Foreword by John Stasko, Georgia Institute of Technology

 

One of the greatest challenges of our time is to make sense of the overwhelming amount of information all around us.  The concepts and techniques of Information Visualization (IV) help us to understand this deluge of data.

 

The second edition of Information Visualization has been completely restructured to focus on core concepts and novel technologies that allow us to interact with information in new and exciting ways.

 

Highlights of the Second Edition include

  • A new structure to enable readers to grasp key concepts more easily;
  • A wealth of new Case Studies showing different applications of IV;
  • New exercises to test your understanding;  
  • A DVD featuring video examples of IV in action.

 

Check out the Companion Website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/spence for additional resources for students and instructors.

 

About the Author

Robert Spence is Professor of Information Engineering at Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London.  He is widely recognized to be one of the pioneers of IV, and has taught the subject world-wide to both students and professionals.

Format: Hardcover
Given how poor books in this area have been in the past it is a very pleasant surprise to have read this book and found it to be a well structured and well written description of the field. Well printed, with plenty of colour figures and good descriptions of goals and of methods and their flaws, it is easy to recommend this book to those interested in the background of the field, particularly to students.

This book serves as a good solid well thought out introduction to Information Visualisation. Not only does it describe techniques for visualising large/diverse/unstructured datasets, it also provides examples and explanations of why the techniques work.
For advanced readers in the field, it is thought provoking as it gathers together concepts that may not have been considered associated with one another.
Further the style, quality of images, print etc makes this a joy to read.
Altogether a very good book.

I am working on my masters dissertation on a topic related to InfoVis which is a new field for me. This book is the most useful text I read to understand what is information visualization and what techniques avaialable. It is well structured and informative. Sometimes I feel like I am in a one-to-one session with a private teacher. It is rich with examples and justification of each application of a visualization technique in a sepecific example which is important for any design/application study to choose the most suitable technique to the problem in hand. If you are new to this field, you will find yourself at the end of this book have a great knowledge which might be more than basis. To be honest, this book might be easy for someone who is an expert or working on more complicated project or algorithms studies. Finally, this book is highly recommended.
