The Craft of Information Visualization Excerpt :

Since the beginning of the computer age, researchers from many disciplines have sought to facilitate people's use of computers and to provide ways for scientists to make sense of the immense quantities of data coming out of them. One gainful result of these efforts has been the field of information visualization, whose technology is increasingly applied in scientific research, digital libraries, data mining, financial data analysis, market studies, manufacturing production control, and data discovery. This book collects 38 of the key papers on information visualization from a leading and prominent research lab, the University of Maryland’s Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL). Celebrating HCIL’s 20th anniversary, this book presents a coherent body of work from a respected community that has had many success stories with its research and commercial spin-offs. Each chapter contains an introduction specifically written for this volume by two leading HCI researchers, to describe the connections among those papers and reveal HCIL’s individual approach to developing innovations. *Presents key ideas, novel interfaces, and major applications of information visualization tools, embedded in inspirational prototypes. *Techniques can be widely applied in scientific research, digital libraries, data mining, financial data analysis, business market studies, manufacturing production control, drug discovery, and genomic studies. *Provides an "insider" view to the scientific process and evolution of innovation, as told by the researchers themselves. *This work comes from the prominent and high profile University of Maryland's Human Computer Interaction Lab

The overall goal of research in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is to improve the experience of people using computers, making that experience more efficient and intuitive. The University of Maryland's Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL) has repeatedly found that the most effective way to improve the human-computer experience is through the visual sense. Information visualization, the branch of research that studies the human-computer visual interface, has become a major theme during the past 10 years at HCIL. This book collects for the first time 38 of the key papers on information visuali.

Information Retrieval Meets Information Visualization Excerpt :

The research domains information retrieval and information visualization have always been independent from each other. However, they have the potential to be mutually beneficial. With this in mind, a writer school was organized in Zinal, Switzerland, in January 2012, within the context of the EU-funded research project PROMISE (Participative Research Laboratory for Multimedia and Multilingual Information Systems Evaluation). PROMISE aims at advancing the experimental evaluation of complex multimedia and multilingual information systems in order to support individuals, commercial entities, and communities who design, develop, employ, and improve such complex systems. The overall goal of PROMISE is to deliver a unified environment collecting data, knowledge, tools, and methodologies, and to help the user community involved in experimental evaluation. This book constitutes the outcome of the PROMISE Winter School 2012 and contains 11 invited lectures from the research domains information retrieval and information visualization. A large variety of subjects are covered, including hot topics such as crowdsourcing and social media.

Information Visualization Excerpt :

Information visualization is the act of gaining insight into data, and is carried out by virtually everyone. It is usually facilitated by turning data – often a collection of numbers – into images that allow much easier comprehension. Everyone benefits from information visualization, whether internet shopping, investigating fraud or indulging an interest in art. So no assumptions are made about specialist background knowledge in, for example, computer science, mathematics, programming or human cognition. Indeed, the book is directed at two main audiences. One comprises first year students of any discipline. The other comprises graduates – again of any discipline – who are taking a one- or two-year course of training to be visual and interaction designers. By focusing on the activity of design the pedagogical approach adopted by the book is based on the view that the best way to learn about the subject is to do it, to be creative: not to prepare for the ubiquitous examination paper. The content of the book, and the associated exercises, are typically used to support five creative design exercises, the final one being a group project mirroring the activity of a consultancy undertaking a design (not an implementation) for a client. Engagement with the material of this book can have a variety of outcomes. The composer of a school newsletter and the applicant for a multi-million investment should both be able to convey their message more effectively, and the curator of an exhibition will have new presentational techniques on their palette. For those students training to be visual/interaction designers the exercises have led to original and stimulating outcomes.

Framework for Information Visualisation to Support Decision making Excerpt :

The emergence of big data presents opportunities for corporate organisations to exploit massive data collection for strategical decision-making. Despite having access to these data, managers inherently struggle in taking advantages of available information for decision-making. Visualisation offers enhancement on managerial decision-making process via mental cognitive load reduction using visual representation. Albeit the advances of visualisation tools, visualisation for decision-making is rarely explored, leading to a limited understanding of suitable techniques. This book offers knowledge on leveraging information visualisation as a tool in public managerial decision making. In this book, we introduce a framework for supporting software designers in devising visualisation for decision-making support. Our framework encompasses guidelines on requirements and challenges in identifying decision-relevant information and recommended visualisations to represent it. This book discusses the underlying theories, techniques and models of information visualisation and associated with the decision-making process. This book characterizes processes and roles from organisational practices for extracting relevant information within a corporate data warehouse. The chapters within this book cumulatively demonstrate the information visualisation process in supporting organisational decision making. In addition, this book articulates a comprehensive knowledge of Malaysian public service’s decision-making processes and practices. This book highlights emerging opportunities and challenges in using information visualisation in Malaysia for the future undertaking.
