Several researchers, scientists and designers across the globe are trying to make sense of a variety of complex networks using different technological tools at their disposal. They employ a mix of colors, symbols, graphics, algorithms and interactivity to advance cognition and deepen knowledge in each subject of analysis. By doing this they are in many ways creating the syntax of a new language. This book can be seen as the first dictionary of this new lexicon.
The book will showcase and thoroughly analyze the variety of contemporary visual depictions of complex networks. It will cover its historical predecessors and grounds for recent popularity, and explore the ramifications of a new age of infinite interconnectedness. It will also include a set of recommendations and future predictions on the progress of Network Visualization.
The Visual Complexity (VC) book, authored by the interaction design and UX expert Manuel Lima, is finally available for pre-order from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones (amongst others).
