Relevant authors in Visualization

 

I'd say Fernanda Viégas + Martin Wattenberg are the most relevant researchers in the disciplines of visualization. They have launched IBM's Many Eyes, a web community where users can create, discuss and share different types of datasets and Java-generated visualizations. They're co-authors on countless papers and frequently featured in visualization research projects.

 

Jeffrey Heer is also a very proeminent researcher and author in the fields of visualization. He was part of the Berkeley's Visualization Lab and is currently a researcher on the Stanford Visualization Group, where he participated in the creation of Protovis, a JavaScript library for graphic visualizations.

 

Last but not least, there's Lev Manovich, a UCSD Professor and researcher in the fields of digital culture, visualization and media theory. He wrote several articles and papers on visualization and information and leads the Software Studies Initiative.

 

An extended list of authors would include Edward Tufte (the classic author), Ben Fry (for his visualizations, Processing and theses), Mike Danziger ("Information Visualization for the People"), the blogger Nathan Yau (from FlowingData.com), and so on.

David McCandless. I find that name in the newspaper related to data visualization. I don't know if is important to you but I decided to share it anyway. =)
