Full Description
This 2nd edition has been completely revised and updated, with additional new chapters. It presents state-of-the-art research in this area and focuses on key topics such as: - Visualization of semantic and structural information and metadata in the context of the emerging Semantic Web - Ontology-based Information Visualization and the use of graphically represented ontologies - Semantic Visualizations using Topic Maps and graph techniques - Recommender systems for filtering and recommending on the Semantic Web - SVG and X3D as new XML-based languages for 2D and 3D visualisations - Methods used to construct and visualize high quality metadata and ontologies - Navigating and exploring XML documents using interactive multimedia interfaces The design of visual interfaces for e-commerce and information retrieval is currently a challenging area of practical web development. Most of the techniques and methods discussed can be applied now, making this book essential reading for web developers and end users as well as visualisation researchers.
