Information visualization is not only about creating graphical displays of complex and latent information structures. It contributes to a broader range of cognitive, social, and collaborative activities. This is the first book to examine information visualization from this perspective. This 2nd edition continues the unique and ambitious quest for setting information visualization and virtual environments in a unifying framework. It pays special attention to the advances made over the last five years and the potentially fruitful directions to pursue. It is particularly updated to meet the need for practitioners. The book is a valuable source for researchers and graduate students. Its key features include the latest advances in information visualization, and applications of information visualization, including knowledge domain visualization, knowledge diffusion, and social networks. This new edition is forwarded by Ben Shneiderman of the University of Maryland.
