Why network visualization is useful Why network visualization is useful AT&T Labs' Infoviz research group describes network graphs and their many uses: There is information in the connections. A glance is enough to identify nodes with the most links, nodes straddling different subgroups, and nodes isolated by their lack of connections.

Quantified Self | Self Knowledge Through Numbers

Quantified Self | Self Knowledge Through Numbers “How do you feel right now?” Such a short question can lead us toward profound insights into our lives. But how do we ask ourselves that question?
Creating a visual “fingerprint” for film - thesis project by Frederic Brodbeck #processing Creating a visual “fingerprint” for film - thesis project by Frederic Brodbeck #processing Cinemetrics is the thesis project of Frederic Brodbeck‘s at the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK), Den Haag. It aims to create a visual “fingerprint” for film using the editing structure, color, speech and motion. Different characteristics are analysed using python and openCV, and data visualised using a custom Processing application. This allows films to be interpreted or compared side by side.

Visualising Data » Resources Here is a collection of some of the most important, effective, useful and practical data visualisation tools. The content covers the many different resources used to create and publish visualisations, tools for working with colour, packages for handling data, places to obtain data, the most influential books and educational programmes and qualifications in visualisation itself. * Please note there are another 40-50 items to add to these collections but they are going to be saved for now and launched alongside the new version of this website around April * Data and visualisation tools Resources and learning references

Perceptual Edge

Perceptual Edge Perceptual Edge We are overwhelmed by information, not because there is too much, but because we don't know how to tame it. Information lies stagnant in rapidly expanding pools as our ability to collect and warehouse it increases, but our ability to make sense of and communicate it remains inert, largely without notice. Computers speed the process of information handling, but they don't tell us what the information means or how to communicate its meaning to decision makers.

DataArt on BBC Backstage - Visualisations

For those who don’t know me, I’m a researcher for BBC Research & Development. For the last fifteen months I’ve been on attachment with BBC Scotland learning about how R&D interfaces with production divisions. Prior to my attachment I worked closely with Ian on Backstage events such as the Edinburgh Un-Festival and Over the Air so now I’m back in the fold I’ve been asked to work with a small team on the closedown and migration of BBC Backstage. A few weeks have passed since the announcement that Backstage is due to close. It’s taken a while to get up to speed but recently we’ve really started to get a clear idea on what we need to do to close down Backstage in a way that preserves its legacy and continues to support its community.
I’ve become quite the fan of Gephi, lately, and received a good-natured challenge by one of my colleagues, which went something like, “Why is a everything a network with you, now?” Obviously, in the case of social network-like phenomena, such as mapping collaboration in the Digital Humanities with the DH@Stanford graph–network theory and network language (whether visual or theoretical) make sense. Network analytical tools like Gephi are also only a short step away from spatial analytical tools, like ArcGIS, many of which are used to ask questions about geographic networks and not about the kind of continuous data found in topography. Tooling Up for Digital Histories as part of the DH@Stanford graph, which describes collaboration as temporally-aware instances of interconnected social networks at Stanford University.

Visual Data Web - Visually Experiencing the Data Web This website provides an overview of our attempts to a more visual Data Web. The term Data Web refers to the evolution of a mainly document-centric Web toward a more data-oriented Web. In its narrow sense, the term describes pragmatic approaches of the Semantic Web, such as RDF and Linked Data.
