Computers, Visualization, and History: How New Technology Will Transform Our Understanding of the Past

Cover
M.E. Sharpe, 10.10.2013 - 216 Seiten
This visionary and thoroughly accessible book examines how digital environments and virtual reality have altered the ways historians think and communicate ideas and how the new language of visualization transforms our understanding of the past. Drawing on familiar graphic models--maps, flow charts, museum displays, films--the author shows how images can often convey ideas and information more efficiently and accurately than words.
