chapter  15
- Visualization Systems
Pages 28

In this chapter we present an overview of a number of data and informa-

tion visualization systems and toolkits. We have concentrated primarily on

software that is freely available, to enable students interested in exploring

further in the field of visualization to try out existing technology. These are

only a sampling, however; many fine tools that we have not mentioned are

also available, and readers are encouraged to search for and download them.

We also mention some commercial packages with functionality that overlaps

with the systems we’ve chosen to describe. Caveat: the URLs given were

correct at the time of publication. These may have changed since then, or

some of the tools may no longer be freely distributed.
