As a child of the 80s, the Choose Your Own Adventure books were a fixture of my rainy afternoons. My elementary school library kept a low, fairly unmaintained-looking shelf of them hidden in one of its back corners. Whether this non-marquee placement was an attempt by the librarians to deemphasize the books in favor of ‘serious’ (children’s) literature or was simply my good luck I still haven’t worked out.
Jeffrey Heer , Stanford Computer Science (HCI) jheer stanford.edu Seminar on People, Computers, and Design Stanford University March 6, 2009 In this talk, I will chart the course of visual depictions of data over the last 200 years, from the classic data graphics of Playfair and Minard to modern interactive visualization systems. Along the way, we will consider the factors that contribute to the effectiveness of information graphics and the role of computational tools in the visualization process. I will conclude with a review of current research directions in interactive visualization and suggest opportunities for future investigation. Jeffrey Heer is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, where his research focuses on human-computer interaction, interactive visualization, and social computing.

Since the 80 Megabyte hard disk in the HCIL was shared by 14 users it was difficult to determine how and where space was used.
Treemap developed by Jean-Daniel Fekete Ben Schneiderman from the University of Maryland, gave a fascinating talk in Cambridge on 5th March 2009 about the topic of “Information Visualization for Knowledge Discovery.” Ben has authored many books and papers on human computer interaction, and was the founder of the Human Computer Interaction Laboratory at the University of Maryland. His keen interest is the field of information visualisation. During his talk, Ben pointed out that in contrast to scientific visualization information visualization is a relatively young field as information visualization conferences have only been going for about 15 years.
