Geographic Visualization: Concepts, Tools andApplications is a 'state-of-the-art' review ofthe latest developments in the subject. It examines how newconcepts, methods and tools can be creatively applied to solveproblems relevant to a wide range of topics. The text coversthe impact of three-dimensional displays on user interaction alongwith the potentialities in animation and clearly explains how tocreate temporally sensitive visualizations. It also explores thepotential for handling mobile data and representing uncertainty; aswell as the role of participatory visualization systems andexploratory methods. Hallmark Features: * An introduction to the diverse forms of geographicvisualization which draws upon a number of theoretical perspectivesand disciplines to provide an insightful commentary on new methods,techniques and tools. * Richly illustrated in full colour throughout, includingnumerous relevant case studies and accessible discussions ofimportant visualization concepts to enable clearer understandingfor non-technical audiences. * Chapters are written by leading scholars and researchers in arange of cognate fields, including, cartography, GIScience,architecture, art, urban planning and computer graphics with casestudies drawn from Europe, North America and Australia This book is an invaluable resource for all graduatestudents, researchers and professionals working in the geographicinformation sector, computer graphics and cartography.

Autorenporträt
Martin Dodge Lecturer in Human Geography School of Environment and Development, University of Manchester, UK Martin Dodge works at the University of Manchester as a Lecturer in Human Geography. His research focuses primarily on the geography of cyberspace, particularly ways to map and visualize the Internet and the Web. He is the curator of a web-based Atlas of Cyberspace (www.cybergeography.org/atlas) and has co-authored two books,Mapping Cyberspace (Routledge, 2000) and Atlas of Cyberspace (Addison-Wesley 2001), both with Rob Kitchin. Mary McDerby Visualization Support Officer Research Computing Services, University of Manchester, UK Mary McDerby is visualization support officer in Research Computing Services providing visualization, computer graphics, multimedia and image processing services to the University of Manchester. Her research is in the visualization of complex datasets within a virtual reality environment, as well as medical visualization. She is active in both national and international computer graphics/visualization communities such as Eurographics, and has been a co-editor of the proceedings of the UK chapter for the past three years. Martin Turner Visualization Team Leader Research Computing Services, University of Manchester, UK Martin Turner is the Visualization Team Leader within Research Computing Services at the University of Manchester. He gained his PhD in the Computer Laboratory, at Cambridge University. His research in visualization and image processing has resulted in a Fellowship with British Telecom, a published book, Fractal Geometry in Digital Imaging (Academic Press, 1998) as well as over 50 other publications, and he has supervised to completion seven successful MPhil/PhD students. Key activities and grants cover both local and nationally funded high-end visualization services as well as commercial contracts.
