This tutorial book presents an augmented selection of the material presented at the GI-Dagstuhl Research Seminar on Human-Centered Visualization Environments, HCVE 2006, held in Dagstuhl Castle, Germany in March 2006. The 8 tutorial lectures presented are the thoroughly cross-reviewed and revised versions of the summaries and findings, presented and discussed at the seminar. After an introduction to human-centered visualization environments the fundamental principles and methods in that area are shown such as human-centered aspects, interacting with visualizations, visual representations, as well as challenges and unsolved problems. The book is concluded with lectures on domain-specific visualization describing geographic visualization, algorithm animation, and biomedical information visualization.
