Visualizations are visual representations of non-visual data. They are produced for people to interact with and to make sense of the underlying data. Rapid advances in display technology and computer power have enabled researchers to produce visually appealing pictures. However, the effectiveness of those pictures in conveying the embedded information to end users has not been fully explored. Handbook of Human Centric Visualization addresses issues related to design, evaluation and application of visualizations. Topics include visualization theories, design principles, evaluation methods and metrics, human factors, interaction methods and case studies. This cutting-edge book includes contributions from well-established researchers worldwide, from diverse disciplines including psychology, visualization and human-computer interaction. This handbook is designed for a professional audience composed of practitioners, lecturers and researchers working in the field of computer graphics, visualization, human-computer interaction and psychology. Undergraduate and postgraduate students in science and engineering focused on this topic will also find this book useful as a comprehensive textbook or reference.
Get an In-Depth Understanding of Graph Drawing Techniques, Algorithms, Software, and Applications The Handbook of Graph Drawing and Visualization provides a broad, up-to-date survey of the field of graph drawing. It covers topological and geometric foundations, algorithms, software systems, and visualization applications in business, education, science, and engineering. Each chapter is self-contained and includes extensive references. The first several chapters of the book deal with fundamental topological and geometric concepts and techniques used in graph drawing, such as planarity testing and embedding, crossings and planarization, symmetric drawings, and proximity drawings. The following chapters present a large collection of algorithms for constructing drawings of graphs, including tree, planar straight-line, planar orthogonal and polyline, spine and radial, circular, rectangular, hierarchical, and three-dimensional drawings as well as labeling algorithms, simultaneous embeddings, and force-directed methods. The book then introduces the GraphML language for representing graphs and their drawings and describes three software systems for constructing drawings of graphs: OGDF, GDToolkit, and PIGALE. The final chapters illustrate the use of graph drawing methods in visualization applications for biological networks, computer security, data analytics, education, computer networks, and social networks. Edited by a pioneer in graph drawing and with contributions from leaders in the graph drawing research community, this handbook shows how graph drawing and visualization can be applied in the physical, life, and social sciences. Whether you are a mathematics researcher, IT practitioner, or software developer, the book will help you understand graph drawing methods and graph visualization systems, use graph drawing techniques in your research, and incorporate graph drawing solutions in your products.
This book is a guide on conformal mappings, their applications in physics and technology, and their computer-aided visualization. Conformal mapping (CM) is a classical part of complex analysis having numerous applications to mathematical physics. This modern handbook on CM includes recent results such as the classification of all triangles and quadrangles that can be mapped by elementary functions, mappings realized by elliptic integrals and Jacobian elliptic functions, and mappings of doubly connected domains. This handbook considers a wide array of applications, among which are the construction of a Green function for various boundary-value problems, streaming around airfoils, the impact of a cylinder on the surface of a liquid, and filtration under a dam. With more than 160 domains included in the catalog of mapping, Handbook of Conformal Mapping with Computer-Aided Visualization is more complete and useful than any previous volume covering this important topic. The authors have developed an interactive ready-to-use software program for constructing conformal mappings and visualizing plane harmonic vector fields. The book includes a floppy disk for IBM-compatible computers that contains the CONFORM program.
