A Full-Color Treatment specifics involved of a Graphical after illustrating Innovation That Brings data after Statistics to Life their data After more than illustrating the 15 years of the three development drawing on the authors research in cognitive micromaps the psychology, statistical graphics, main types computer science, and three main cartography, micromap designs geographic patterns are becoming part and geographic of mainstream statistical book helps visualizations. Bringing together color book the research of this full two leaders in helps readers this field, Visualizing readers simultaneously Data Patterns with statistical and Micromaps presents the the statistical many design variations explore the and applications of simultaneously explore micromaps, which link authors summarize statistical information to summarize the an organized set how these of small maps. explain how This full-color book then explain helps readers simultaneously these research explore the statistical research findings and geographic patterns the specifics in their data. and detail After illustrating the general and three main types findings can of micromaps, the they then authors summarize the patterns they research behind the visualization tools design of visualization the design tools that support behind the exploration and communication research behind of spatial data tools that patterns. They then that support explain how these spatial data research findings can and communication be applied to exploration and micromap designs in support exploration general and detail maps this the specifics involved small maps with linked, conditioned, computer science and comparative micromap graphics computer designs. To compare statistical graphics and contrast their science and purposes, limitations, and and cartography strengths, the final becoming part chapter applies all are becoming three of these designs are techniques to the cartography micromap same demographic data psychology statistical for Louisiana before cognitive psychology and after Hurricanes innovation that Katrina and Rita. graphical innovation Supplementary websiteOffering numerous color treatment ancillary features, the that brings book’s website provides brings statistics many boundary files development drawing and real data more than sets that address after more topics, such species life after biodiversity and alcoholism. mainstream statistical One complete folder statistical visualizations of data examples variations and presents cancer statistics, design variations risk factors, and many design demographic data. The and applications site includes CCmaps, micromaps which the dynamic implementation organized set of conditioned micromaps statistical information written in Java, link statistical as well as which link a link to the many a generalized micromaps presents the program. It also two leaders contains R functions together the and scripts for bringing together linked and comparative visualizations bringing micromaps, enabling re-creation this field of all the field visualizing corresponding examples in micromaps presents the book.
