Reviews
This visually stunning, complex, and thought-provoking publication will be of particular interest to information visualization professionals and serve as a revelation to informed nonspecialists.--Library Journal--

Whether you read it cover to cover or just browse the extraordinary examples, you put it down inspired.

--Nature--

In addition to the practical advice that Atlas of Knowledge: Anyone Can Map offers, the overall, lasting effect of the book is one of awe; the book sets the reader's mind to wander about the myriad ways that displaying and visualizing data may help us live more healthy, effective, and robust lives.

--Mathematical Association of America--

The Atlas of Knowledge is an excellent general reference book for those interested in scientific approaches to computer-generated data visualization.
