Graphics Recognition. Current Trends and Evolutions:12th IAPR International Workshop, GREC 2017, Kyoto, Japan, November 9-10, 2017, Revised Selected Papers. 1st ed. 2018
Seit wir von digitalen Datensätzen überschwemmt werden und sich Nachrichten im Internet schnell und weit verbreiten, gelten Infografiken als das neue heiße Ding. Gut gestaltet, pointiert und detailreich vermitteln sie auf übersichtliche Weise noch die schwierigsten Sachverhalte. Kartografen, Journalisten, Designer, Statistiker und Wissenschaftler werfen ihre Expertise zusammen, um komplexes Wissen visuell eingängig zu verpacken. Doch das Vorgehen ist nicht neu - die Geschichte der Informationsgrafik reicht Jahrhunderte zurück. Dieser Band bietet mit über 400 Karten, Diagrammen und Zeichnungen einen überwältigenden Querschnitt durch die visuelle Wissensvermittlung und erstreckt sich über viele Länder, Medien und Epochen - von mittelalterlichen Manuskripten bis zu farbigen Druckgrafiken, von Pergamentrollen bis zu Prachtatlanten, von handgemalten Diagrammen bis zu digitalen Datenkarten. Neben Meisterwerken wie der Weltkarte von Martin Waldseemüller, den Naturstudien Erich Haeckelsund dem Netzplan der New Yorker U-Bahn von Massimo Vignelli und Bob Noorda birgt die von Sandra Rendgen kuratierte Auswahl viele unbekannte Schätze. Die Einleitung sowie aufschlussreiche Bildunterschriften erhellen den Kontext jeder Arbeit. Mit David Rumsey, Michael Friendly, Michael Stoll und Scott Klein gewähren vier ausgewiesene Experten Einblick in ihre einzigartigen historischen Sammlungen. Nach Information Graphics und Understanding the World schließt Sandra Rendgen mit diesem Buch eine Lücke im wissenschaftlichen Diskurs und schafft ein beispielloses Referenzwerk für Datencracks, Designer, Historiker und jeden wissbegierigen Leser. Zahlreiche Grafiken aus der Astronomie, Kartografie, Anthropologie und Technik erzählen die Evolution der Informationsvisualisierung und zeigen auf anschauliche Weise, wie wir Menschen leben, lehren und lernen.

Inside the making of the multibillion-dollar Grand Theft Auto videogame empire.... Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest and most controversial videogame franchises of all time. Since its first release in 1997, GTA has pioneered the use of everything from 3D graphics to the voices of top Hollywood actors and repeatedly transformed the world of gaming. Despite its incredible innovations in the $75 billion game industry, it has also been a lightning rod of debate, spawning accusations of ethnic and sexual discrimination, glamorizing violence, and inciting real-life crimes. Jacked tells the turbulent and mostly unknown story of GTA’s wildly ambitious creators, Rockstar Games; the invention and evolution of the franchise; and the cultural and political backlash it has provoked. Written by David Kushner, author of Masters of Doom and a top journalist on gaming, this book is drawn from over 10 years of interviews and research, including first-hand knowledge of Grand Theft Auto’s creators and detractors. It explains how British prep-school brothers Sam and Dan Houser took their dream of fame, fortune, and the glamor of American pop culture and transformed it into a worldwide videogame blockbuster. It also offers inside details on key episodes in the development of the series, including the financial turmoil of Rockstar games, the infamous ´´Hot Coffee´´ sex minigame incident, and more. Whether you love Grand Theft Auto or hate it - or just want to understand the defining entertainment product of a generation - you’ll want to hear Jacked and get the real story behind this boundary-pushing game. David Kushner is an award-winning journalist and author. A contributing editor of Rolling Stone, he has also written for Wired, The New York Times Magazine, New York, and GQ.
