Information Visualization, Second Edition: Perception for Design (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive Technologies)

Buy
"This unique and essential guide to human visual perception and related cognitive principles will enrich courses on information visualization and empower designers to see their way forward. Ware's updated review of empirical research and interface design examples will do much to accelerate innovation and adoption of information visualization."
Ben Shneiderman, University of Maryland

"Colin Ware is the perfect person to write this book, with a long history of prominent contributions to the visual interaction with machines and to information visualization directly. It goes a long way towards joining science to the practical design of information visualization systems."
from the foreword by Stuart Card, PARC

Most designers know that yellow text presented against a blue background reads clearly and easily, but how many can explain why, and what really are the best ways to help others and ourselves clearly see key patterns in a bunch of data? When we use software, access a web site, or view graphics, our understanding is greatly enhanced or impeded by the way information is presented. By explaining in detail how we think visually, this book provides guidance on how to construct effective interactive information displays.

This book combines a strictly scientific approach to human perception with a practical concern for the rules governing the effective visual presentation of information. Surveying the research of leading psychologists and neurophysiologists, author Colin Ware isolates key principles at work in vision and perception, and from them derives specific and effective visualization techniques suitable for a wide range of scenarios. Information Visualization offers practical guidelines that can be applied by anyone, and covers all facets of visual perception: color, organization, space perception, motion, and texture.

* Major revision of this classic work, with a new chapter on visual thinking, new sections on face perception and flow visualization, an appendix on how to evaluate visualizations,and a greatly expanded chapter on color and color sequences.

*New to this edition is the full-color treatment throughout, to better display over 400 illustrations.

*From a leading researcher in the field of human perception who has brought together, in a single resource, all current scientific insight into the question of data visualization.

About the Author
The author takes the "visual" in visualization very seriously. Colin Ware has advanced degrees in both computer science (MMath, Waterloo) and the psychology of perception (Ph.D., Toronto). He has published over a hundred articles in scientific and technical journals and at leading conferences, many of which relate to the use of color, texture, motion, and 3D in information visualization. In addition to his research, Professor Ware also builds useful visualization software systems. He has been involved in developing 3D interactive visualization systems for ocean mapping for over twelve years, and he directed the development of the NestedVision3D system for visualizing very large networks of information. Both of these projects led to commercial spin-offs. Professor. Ware recently moved from the University of New Brunswick in Canada to direct the Data Visualization Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire.

Understanding IPTV (Informa Telecoms & Media)
Understanding IPTV (Informa Telecoms & Media)
Just when we thought we had mastered modern communications-related acronyms, a new one has appeared. That acronym, IPTV, which is the subject of this book, represents an emerging technology that could change the manner by which we receive home entertainment, obtain training, operate our personal computers, and even use our cell phones. The acronym...
Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB
Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB
Numerous books have been written on Radar Systems and Radar Applications. A limited set of these books provides companion software. There is need for a comprehensive reference book that can provide the reader with hands-on-like experience. The ideal radar book, in my opinion, should serve as a conclusive, detailed, and useful reference for working...
An Introduction to Radio Frequency Engineering
An Introduction to Radio Frequency Engineering
The following text evolved out of a series of courses on radio frequency (RF) engineering to undergraduates, postgraduates, government and industry. It was designed to meet the needs of such groups and, in particular, the needs of working engineers attempting to upgrade their skills. Thirty years ago, it appeared as if the fibre optics revolution...

Development and Application of the Finite Element Method based on MatLab
Development and Application of the Finite Element Method based on MatLab

The intention of this booklet is a brief but general introduction into the treatment of the Finite Element Method (FEM). The FEM has become the leading method in computer–oriented mechanics, so that many scientific branches have grown up besides over the last decades. Nevertheless, the FEM today is a question of economy. On the one hand...

Applied Numerical Methods W/MATLAB: for Engineers & Scientists
Applied Numerical Methods W/MATLAB: for Engineers & Scientists
This book is designed to support a one-semester course in numerical methods. It has been written for students who want to learn and apply numerical methods in order to solve problems in engineering and science. As such, the methods are motivated by problems rather than by mathematics. That said, sufficient theory is provided so...
