Diagram Design A Constructive Theory

Synopsis

Diagram Design A Constructive Theory by Thomas Kamps

A systematic analysis of diagrams as visual representations of factual knowledge. The analysis shows that the design process may be divided into three phases: data classification, graphical decision, and layout. Performed in this order, the three phases more or less reflect the design process of a human expert. They also serve as a basis for a constructive theory for diagram design, which is the main focus of this book. XXXXXXX Neuer Text This book is a thorough presentation on the foundations of visualizing information, providing a systematic analysis of diagrams as visual representations of factual knowledge.
