Treemap Art Project Begins August 27
The Department welcomes comments, suggestions and corrections. Send email to editor [at] cs [dot] umd [dot] edu.
Treemaps is a popular visualization tool developed in the Department's Human-Computer Interaction Lab. While originally conceived to map functional things like hard drives, the tool often produces aesthetically pleasing results. The Treemap Art Project, curated by Prof. Ben Shneiderman, aims to highlight visualization's artistic side with a collection of framed prints that will be displayed on the 3rd floor of CSIC.
