Издательство Springer, 2014, -741 pp.We visualize data for human appreciation and understanding. In other words, all visualizations are meant to be human centric. However, human centric visualizations do not come automatically. To ensure that a visualization is human centric, we need proper theories and principles to guide the process of the visualization design. Once the visualization is produced, we need methods and measures to verify whether the design objectives are indeed achieved. Rapid advances in display technology and computer power have enabled researchers and practitioners to produce visually appealing pictures. However, the effectiveness of those pictures in conveying the embedded information to end users has been relatively less explored. Handbook of Human Centric Visualization aims to contribute to the human side of the visualization research. It 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 is an edited volume whose contributors include well-established researchers worldwide, from diverse disciplines including psychology, education, visualization, and human-computer interaction. The main features of this book can be summarized as follows: Provides a comprehensive overview of human centric visualization Represents latest developments and current trends in the field Presents visualization theories Covers design principles and guidelines Presents evaluation methodologies and case studies Includes contributions from leading experts and active researchers from a range of disciplines This book 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.Part I Visual Communication Visualizing Thought Gryphon: A ‘Little’ Domain-Specific Programming Language for Diffusion MRI Visualizations Viewing Abstract Data as Maps Part II Theory and Science Individual Differences and Translational Science in the Design of Human-Centered Visualizations Evaluating Visualization Environments: Cognitive, Social, and Cultural Perspectives On the Prospects for a Science of Visualization Part III Principles, Guidelines and RecommendationsToward a Better Understanding and Application of the Principles of Visual Communication Pep Up Your Time Machine: Recommendations for the Design of Information Visualizations of Time-Dependent Data Using Textbook Illustrations to Extract Design Principles for Algorithm Visualizations Part IV Methods Conceptual Design for Sensemaking An Introduction and Guide to Evaluation of Visualization Techniques Through User Studies User-Centered Evaluation of Information Visualization Techniques: Making the HCI-InfoVis Connection Explicit Eye Tracking on Visualizations: Progressive Extraction of Scanning Strategies Evaluating Overall Quality of Graph Visualizations Indirectly and Directly Visual Analysis of Eye Tracking Data User Studies in Visualization: A Reflection on Methods Part V Perception and Cognition On the Benefits and Drawbacks of Radial Diagrams Measuring Memories for Objects and Their Locations in Immersive Virtual Environments: The Subjective Component of Memorial Experience Human-Centric Chronographics:Making Historical Time Memorable Visualizing Multiple Levels and Dimensions of Social Network Properties Part VI Dynamic Visualization Adaptive Diagrams: A Research Agenda to Explore How Learners Can Manipulate Online Diagrams to Self-Manage Cognitive Load Dynamic Visualisations and Motor Skills Dynamic Visualizations: A Two-Edged Sword?
