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.

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.
