The visualization process doesn’t happen in a vacuum; it is grounded in principles and methodologies of design, cognition, perception, and human-computer-interaction that are combined to one’s personal knowledge and creative experiences. Design for Information critically examines other design solutions — current and historic — helping you gain a larger understanding of how to solve specific problems. This book is designed to help you foster the development of existing methods and concepts to help you overcome design problems. Read the review here.
The basic need of civil society to live in responsibly planned and managed cities, to be involved in the planning process, or to at least be informed about it, has become a renewed focal point of debate in the past years. Accountability technologies stand for citizen-driven practices of distributed data collection, the collective analysis through visualization of these data, and finally, their strategic use in the public discourse, in the legal system or political processes. This book exemplarily shows which socio-political areas of action are opened up by Accountability Technologies, but also which critical aspects are tied in with them.
