Visualization in the Social Sciences
"Visualization of Information and Data: Where Are We Now and Where Do We Go From Here?"The title is taken from name of a workshop held last year in Paris , and it essentially summarises the aim of part of this report. According to the workshop, information visualization is crucial for the success of the so called `information revolution'. Visualization in computer science terms involves both the conversion of `abstract' data into `concrete' visual representations and the creation of user interfaces to support tasks such as searching, data mining and exploratory data analysis, analysis and modelling of data, representation and display of data and teaching and learning aids.
