Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"This excellent book is written in an accessible language and is well structured, making it a fine textbook for an introductory course on information visualization (IV). Extensive use of good examples and figures will help readers quickly grasp the essentials of the different techniques and concepts presented. … All in all, this book is a good starting point for understanding the goal of IV, getting a broad overview of the field, comprehending the main techniques proposed to date, and raising interest in future developments." (Angelica de Antonio, ACM Computing Reviews, July, 2009)

“In eight well-illustrated chapters, Mazza moves you through basic theory and simplified visualization techniques to reader response theory and highly complex techniques. … meant to be a textbook for a course in information visualization. … I find this book highly useful in understanding how to handle massive quantities of data visually. … If used as a reference book, it points the way to solving problems related to visual representation of data in real time. … a useful book for both academics and practitioners.” (Tom Warren, Technical Communication, Vol. 57 (3), August, 2010)

From the Back Cover

Information Visualization is a relatively young field that is acquiring more and more consensus in both academic and industrial environments. This concise introduction to the subject explores the use of computer-supported interactive graphical representations to explain data and amplify cognition. Written in a lively, yet rigorous, style the book explores ways of communicating ideas or facts about data, and shows how to validate hypotheses, and facilitate the discovery of new facts via exploration.

The concepts outlined in the book are illustrated in a simple and thorough manner, building a reference for those situations in which graphic representation of information, generated and assisted by the use of computer tools, can help in visualizing ideas, data and concepts.

With suggestions for setting communications systems based on, or availing of, graphic representations, this textbook illustrates cases, situations, tools and methods which help make the graphic representations of information effective and efficient.

Format: Paperback
Mazza's book is a valuable addition to the literature on information visualization. It is suited to a wide range of readers; the content is evenly and carefully spread to introduce the main concepts including cognitive and perceptual issues; and the presentation style is clear and easy to read - the approach of a teacher rather than the author of a scientific paper. A competent and enthusiastic teacher can, on the basis of this book, fashion their own course to the needs of their audience.

The book is also refreshing in its length: a delightful contrast to the current prevalence of texts (on all subjects) that are thick, heavy and expensive. The production standard is good, and the price reasonable.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides a clean, clear introduction to numerous examples and various principles of information visualisation design. You won't find many new or surprising examples but it would make an excellent primer for students (except for the price). You can find these examples and kind of knowledge for free on [...] and similar weblogs about visualisation.
