Data visualization is a relatively young scientific discipline. Over the last three decades, a large collection of computer-supported visualization techniques have been developed, and the merits and benefits of using these techniques have been evidenced by numerous applications in practice. These technical advancements have given rise to the scientific curiosity about some fundamental questions such as why and how visualization works, when it is useful or effective and when it is not, what are the primary factors affecting its usefulness and effectiveness, and so on. This book signifies timely and exciting opportunities to answer such fundamental questions by building on the wealth of knowledge and experience accumulated in developing and deploying visualization technology in practice.
Helwig Hauser is professor in visualization at the University of Bergen, Norway, and the leader of a new Center for Data Science at the same University. Since his undergraduate and graduate studies at Vienna University of Technology, Austria, where he completed his PhD in the field of visualization, he is active as a researcher, PI, reviewer, editor, conference chair, committee member, etc., and as University teacher for over 20 years. His interests include visualization in general and the interactive visual exploration and analysis of data as well as visual data science in particular. With over 200 published papers (h-index > 50) and over 100 talks (keynotes, invited talks, etc.), he is recognized for his contributions to the field. For more information, see vis.UiB.no
Penny Rheingans is Professor and Director of the School of Computing and Information Science at the University of Maine, USA. She received a Ph.D in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and an AB in Computer Science from Harvard University. She has made seminal contributions to the areas of perceptual, illustrative, and uncertainty visualization. She was part of the Executive Committee of the Visualization Research Challenges report in 2006. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Computing Research Association (CRA). Her current research interests include the visualization of data important to increasing student success, computing pedagogy, perceptual and illustration issues in visualization, and learning analytics.
Gerik Scheuermann is full professor at the Computer Science Department at Leipzig University, Germany. He studied mathematics at TU Kaiserslautern, Germany where he also got a PhD in visualization. For more than 20 years, he is an active researcher and teacher in visualization, with more than 250 peer-reviewed publications in the field. He has been paper chair for all major conferences in visualization, co-organized major conferences, and served as associated editor for major journals. His interests include most areas of visualization with a focus on topological, mathematical, and feature-based approaches and applications in engineering, medicine, bioinformatics, environmental sciences, and digital humanities.
