Format: Hardcover
Data visualization specialists use math, computer science and physics to create images that improve understanding of data sets, and this introductory text, perfect for college-level computer libraries and classroom assignment alike, offers a basic introduction to the field and its various visualization techniques. Here are cross-disciplinary keys to understanding such sets and how imaging and computer graphics works, with chapters blending math formulas with imaging techniques and specs. An excellent reference for any advanced, college-level holding strong in computer graphics or data visualization techniques.
