Since the beginning of the computer age, researchers from many disciplines have sought to facilitate people's use of computers and to provide ways for scientists to make sense of the immense quantities of data coming out of them. One gainful result of these efforts has been the field of information visualization, whose technology is increasingly applied in scientific research, digital libraries, data mining, financial data analysis, market studies, manufacturing production control, and data discovery. This book collects 38 of the key papers on information visualization from a leading and prominent research lab, the University of Maryland's Human-Computer Interaction Lab (HCIL). Celebrating HCIL's 20th anniversary, this book presents a coherent body of work from a respected community that has had many success stories with its research and commercial spin-offs. Each chapter contains an introduction specifically written for this volume by two leading HCI researchers, to describe the connections among those papers and reveal HCIL's individual approach to developing innovations.… (more)

A more appropriate title would perhaps be "Information Visualization Research at the HCI Laboratory, University of Maryland" since the book is a collection of previously published research papers from that institution, with a general introduction and short chapter introductions added. The collection covers some important original contributions to information visualization, such as dynamic queries and treemaps, as well as applications and developments of previously known techniques, including zoomable user interfaces and fisheye presentations. Most of the work reported represents a particular perspective of supporting a single user to carry out information retrieval or management tasks more efficiently. There is also a couple of taxonomic surveys, and some rather general thoughts on how information visualization can support creative work and discovery.
