By Wolfgang Aigner, Silvia Miksch

Time is an outstanding measurement that's universal to many program domain names equivalent to drugs, engineering, enterprise, or technology. as a result of exact features of time, applicable visible and analytical tools are required to discover and learn them.

This booklet begins with an creation to visualization and historic examples of visible representations. At its middle, the e-book offers and discusses a scientific view of the visualization of time-oriented info alongside 3 key questions: what is being visualized (data), why whatever is visualized (user tasks), and how it is gifted (visual representation). To aid visible exploration, interplay innovations and analytical tools are required which are mentioned in separate chapters.

A huge a part of this publication is dedicated to a dependent survey of a hundred and one various visualization thoughts as a reference for scientists undertaking similar examine in addition to for practitioners looking info on how their time-oriented information can top be visualized.
