Visualization is the process of representing data, information, and knowledge in a visual form to support the tasks of exploration, confirmation, presentation, and understanding. This book is designed as a textbook for students, researchers, analysts, professionals, and designers of visualization techniques, tools, and systems. It covers the full spectrum of the field, including mathematical and analytical aspects, ranging from its foundations to human visual perception; from coded algorithms for different types of data, information and tasks to the design and evaluation of new visualization techniques.

Sample programs are provided as starting points for building one's own visualization tools. Numerous data sets have been made available that highlight different application areas and allow readers to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different visualization methods. Exercises, programming projects, and related readings are given for each chapter. The book concludes with an examination of several existing visualization systems and projections on the future of the field.

A 2010 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

College-level collections strong in concepts and theory surrounding data visualization will find Interactive Data Visualization: Foundations, Techniques, and Applications to be a powerful addition, covering all the details and tools needed for building visualizations around data. From math and statistical graphs to cartography and scientific displays, this offers plenty of details for creating visual displays of data, offering color illustrations throughout and plenty of refinement details.
The Midwest Book Review, August 2011

With chapters on elaborating on the importance of visualization, understanding the data without it, the relation to the human eyes and mind, what technology has brought in the avenues of displaying and interacting data, no concept is really left untouched. Enhanced with example data, samples, a history of computer graphics, and more, Interactive Data Visualization is a solid text to have on hand for any community or college library collection.
