The significance of Visualization: path, development and promises

Visualization is an ancient human device, yet in the last couple decades, has seen a marked increase of interest from and influence upon various disciplines.

The recent forces that have been shaping this upturn in interest have been moving from a focus on the development of tools and technologies towards an interest in the role of increasingly large and open sets of data, and a greater consideration of user engagement, and consequentially, user interaction.

In this lecture we will attempt to understand the future impact of these incipient forces will have upon the research and contemporary discourse on the field of Visual Languages.
