Title: Visual Analytics Science and Technology

Abstract

It is an honor to welcome you to the first theme issue of information visualization (IVS) dedicated entirely to the study of visual analytics. It all started from the establishment of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsored National Visualization and Analytics Center™ (NVAC™) at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in 2004. In 2005, under the leadership of NVAC, a team of the world’s best and brightest multidisciplinary scholars coauthored its first research and development (R&D) agenda Illuminating the Path, which defines the study as “the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual interfaces.” Among the most exciting, challenging, and educational events developed since then was the first IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST) held in Baltimore, Maryland in October 2006. This theme issue features seven outstanding articles selected from the IEEE VAST proceedings and a commentary article contributed by Jim Thomas, the director of NVAC, on the status and progress of the center.
