Sunitha P. from Packt Publishing provided me with an e-copy of “Mathematica Data Visualization. The book has 136 pages and has the following 5 chapters:
- Chapter 1, Visualization as a Tool to Understand Data gives an introduction to Mathematica. Which is great, because I haven’t used Mathematica in quite a while.
- Chapter 2, Dissecting Data Using Mathematica is about importing data and basic plotting with Mathematica.
- Chapter 3, Time Series and Scientific Visualization teaches time series and molecule visualization.
- Chapter 4, Statistical and Information Visualization has examples of text analysis and graph visualization.
- Chapter 5, Maps and Aesthetics makes some remarks about color maps. I think that pretty much every visualization book raises those points.
Mathematica Data Visualization is a great book about visualization. I particularly liked the chort diagrams example. Although the book is on the short side, the author compensates by giving references for futher reading in each chapter.
