This is the first book to combine a strictly scientific approach tohuman perception with a practical concern for the rules governing theeffective visual presentation of information. Surveying the researchof leading psychologists and neurophysiologists, the author isolateskey principles at work in vision and perception, and from them, derivesspecific, effective visualization techniques, suitable for a wide rangeof scenarios. You can apply these principles in ways to optimize howothers perceive visual information-resulting in improved clarity,utility, and persuasiveness. Likewise, you can apply them to yourown exploratory data analyses to develop display strategies thatmake data patterns and their significance easier to discern. Information Visualization transcends the often-divergent approaches tovisualization taken by individual disciplines. It will prove afascinating, practical resource for anyone who uses graphicalpresentation as a key to successful analysis and communication:graphic artists, user interface/interaction designers, financialanalysts, data miners, and managers faced with information-intensivechallenges.
