Guest Editor's Introduction to Special Issue on Information Visualization
Tamara Munzner
IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications Special Issue on Information Visualization, 22(1), Jan/Feb 2002, pp 20-21.

In this short introduction I briefly describe the goals of the field of information visualization to set the stage for the four accepted papers in this special issue, for which I was the guest editor.

An initial examination of ease of use for 2D and 3D information visualizations of web content
Kirsten Risden, Mary P. Czerwinski, Tamara Munzner, Daniel B. Cook
International Journal of Human Computer Studies, Vol. 53, No. 5, November 2000, pp 695-714.

This paper discusses a user study conducted at Microsoft Research that found a statistically significant improvement in task time when a novel web browser that included the H3Viewer was compared to more traditional browsers.

Interactive Visualization of Large Graphs and Networks
Tamara Munzner
Ph.D. Dissertation, Stanford University, June 2000.

My dissertation includes a chapter each on the H3, Planet Multicast, and Constellation projects, with much more analysis than appeared in any of the original papers.

Artistic Multiprojection Rendering
Maneesh Agrawala, Denis Zorin, Tamara Munzner
Proceedings of the 11th Eurographics Rendering Workshop, June 26-28 2000, pp 125-136. These proceedings were also published as Rendering Techniques 2000, B. Peroche and H. Rushmeier, eds, Springer, 2000.

A paper on interactive rendering of scenes where objects can have different projections, as in the simulaneous multiple viewpoints of Cubist paintings.

Constellation: A Visualization Tool For Linguistic Queries from MindNet
Tamara Munzner and François Guimbretière and George Robertson
Proceedings of the 1999 IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization, October 25-26 1999, San Francisco, CA, 1999, pp 132-135.

A paper on a 2D interactive system which uses a custom graph layout algorithm and many perceptual channels to help computational linguists debug their algorithms for generating and using large semantic networks.

Drawing Large Graphs with H3Viewer and Site Manager
Tamara Munzner
Proceedings of Graph Drawing '98, Montreal, Canada, August 1998, Lecture Notes in Computer Science 1547, pp. 384-393, Springer-Verlag.

A paper which presents the H3Viewer guaranteed frame rate drawing algorithm, along with a brief review of the H3 layout algorithm for context. Very large graphs can be navigated at a constant frame rate, as long as the entire graph can fit into main memory. The viewer is custom OpenGL/C++ code. My implementation of the algorithm discussed here was shipped with the Site Manager 1.1 software from SGI. The source is available for free noncommercial use.

Exploring Large Graphs in 3D Hyperbolic Space
Tamara Munzner
IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, Vol. 18, No. 4, pp 18-23, July/August 1998.

An article which briefly reviews the H3 layout and H3Viewer drawing algorithms. The main new material here is a discussion about possible tasks for graph drawing beyond the global overview problem.

H3: Laying Out Large Directed Graphs in 3D Hyperbolic Space
Tamara Munzner
Proceedings of the 1997 IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization, October 20-21 1997, Phoenix, AZ, pp 2-10, 1997.

A paper that presents a much improved layout algorithm that exploits some of the properties of 3D hyperbolic space to achieve reasonable information density. The viewer is a highly modified version of Geomview, which supports manual subtree collapse and expansion. My implementation of the algorithm discussed here was shipped with the Site Manager 1.0 software from SGI.

Visualizing the Global Topology of the MBone
Tamara Munzner and Eric Hoffman and K. Claffy and Bill Fenner
Proceedings of the 1996 IEEE Symposium on Information Visualization, October 28-29 1996, San Francisco, CA, pp 85-92, 1996.

A case study describing the Planet Multicast project: an interactive 3D geographic visualization of the Internet's multicast backbone, where tunnels are shown as arcs on a globe.

Visualizing the Structure of the World Wide Web in 3D Hyperbolic Space
Tamara Munzner and Paul Burchard
Proceedings of VRML '95 (San Diego, California, December 14-15, 1995), special issue of Computer Graphics, pp 33-38, ACM SIGGRAPH, New York, 1995.

The first of my hyperbolic papers. The layout algorithm is the the most straightforward extension of cone trees to 3D hyperbolic space. The viewer is Geomview/WebOOGL. The system allows neither manual nor automatic collapsing of the graph, so scalability is extremely limited.

Interactive Methods for Visualizable Geometry
Andrew J. Hanson and Tamara Munzner and George Francis
IEEE Computer, Vol. 27, No. 4, pp 73-83, July 1994.

A survey article about interactive mathematical visualization, includes many pictures.

Geomview: a system for geometric visualization,
Nina Amenta, Stuart Levy, Tamara Munzner and Mark Phillips.
communication to the Proceedings of the 11th Annual ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry (1995), pp C12-13.

Same as below, but aimed at the computational geometry community.

Geomview: An Interactive Geometry Viewer
Mark Phillips and Silvio Levy and Tamara Munzner
Notices of the American Mathematical Society (Computers and Mathematics Column), Vol. 40, No.8, pp 985-988, October 1993.

A short note announcing the release of Geomview, a public domain 3D visualization system.
