This tutorial book features an augmented selection of the material presented at the GI-Dagstuhl Research Seminar on Human-Centered Visualization Environments, HCVE 2006, held in Dagstuhl Castle, Germany in March 2006. It presents eight tutorial lectures that are the thoroughly cross-reviewed and revised versions of the summaries and findings presented and discussed at the seminar. After an introduction to human-centered visualization environments, the book shows the fundamental principles and methods in that area, such as human-centered aspects, interacting with visualizations, visual representations, as well as challenges and unsolved problems. The book also includes lectures on domain-specific visualization describing geographic visualization, algorithm animation, and biomedical information visualization. [Springer, 2007]
