A task by data type taxonomy with seven data types and seven tasks (overview, zoom, filter, details-on-demand, relate, history, and extracts) is offered. Expand
Readings in information visualization - using vision to think
This paper presents a meta-anatomy of human interaction in the context of data mapping, which aims to provide a scaffolding for future generations to think and act in a more holistic way. Expand
Designing the user interface strategies for effective human-computer interaction
The Sixth Edition of Designing the User Interface provides a comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date introduction to the dynamic field of human-computer interaction (HCI) and user experience (UX) design. Expand
Tree-maps: a space-filling approach to the visualization of hierarchical information structures
The tree-map visualization technique makes 100% use of the available display space, mapping the full hierarchy onto a rectangular region in a space-filling manner, which allows very large hierarchies to be displayed in their entirety and facilitates the presentation of semantic information. Expand

Tree visualization with tree-maps: 2-d space-filling approach
This paper deals with a two-dimensional space-filling approach in which each node is a rectangle whose area is proportional to some attribute such as node size. Expand
Direct Manipulation: A Step Beyond Programming Languages
As I talked with enthusiasts and examined the systems they used, I began to develop a model of the features that produced such delight, and the central ideas seemed to be visibility of the object of interest; rapid, reversible, incremental actions; and replacement of complex command language syntax by direct manipulation of the objects of interest.
