[635]-671) and indexes. aThis book was written for statisticians, computer scientists, geographers, researchers, and others interested in visualizing data. It presents a unique foundation for producing almost every quantitative graphic found in scientific journals, newspapers, statistical packages, and data visualization systems. While the tangible results of this work have been several visualization software libraries, this book focuses on the deep structures involved in producing quantitative graphics from data. What are the rules that underlie the production of pie charts, bar charts, scatterplots, function plots, maps, mosaics, and radar charts? Those less interested in the theoretical and mathematical foundations can still get a sense of the richness and structure of the system by examining the numerous and often unique color graphics it can produce. The second edition is almost twice the size of the original, with six new chapters and substantial revision. Much of the added material makes this book suitable for survey courses in visualization and statistical graphics. 0aStatistics - Graphic methods - Data processing9279497 2ddccBK c181858d181858 00102ddc406001_422600000000000_W4G7708NFIC9247738aVSLbVSLcSlot 5 (0 Floor, West Wing)d2014-04-08eNatraj Book Centre g7127.29kSlot 5 (0 Floor, West Wing)l3m2o001.4226 W4G7p181821r2020-06-15s2020-06-12v8909.11yBK
