Book News Annotation:

Exploring the impact of computer graphics on the communication of history, Staley offers a study of the methodological and philosophical implications of the use of computer visualizations by historians. Staley, a historian and futurist at Heidelberg College, notes that many computer scientists maintain that an increasing portion of information is communicated visually in the form of maps, geographic information systems, three-dimensional information spaces and data-rich schematics. Staley asserts that this increase in the use of visuals, coupled with the limitations of text, may transform our understanding of history. The text may appeal to a wide audience interested in history and technology. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
