The 30 data viz blogs you can't miss - in one place As data visualization expands its reach – through the rise of Massive Online Courses, the countless events and, most significantly, the interconnection between different disciplines and knowledge fields that produce inspiring works and innovative projects -, it’s only natural that the number of folks writing about it keeps rising. There are literally hundreds of interesting blogs out there, covering all the aspects surrounding the production of quality, effective data visualizations. Interesting projects, like Santiago Ortiz’ ‘Data visualization references network, or Moritz Stefaner’s Viziosphere give a pretty good idea of how vast and rich the data visualization community is.
Periodic table distorted by how abundant each element is on earth. The above is from 1970, so we’ve gotten a little more precise since then. Here are a few other versions:
Pantheon, a project from the Macro Connections group at The MIT Media Lab, explores cultural influences across countries and domains. To make our efforts tractable, Pantheon will not focus on culture, as it is understood in its broadest sense, but on cultural production. In a broad sense, culture can be understood as all of the information that humans—or animals —generate and transmit through non-genetic means . At Pantheon, however, we do not focus on the entire range of cultural information, but in a subset of this information that we define narrowly as cultural production. That is, we do not focus on cultural information such as passed on family values or societal trust , but on cultural production as proxied by the biographies of notable historical characters.

How to Create the Perfect Line Chart The original version of this post was published by Gregor Aisch on vis4.net, on 20 June 2012. This post has been edited and republished with permission. I recently joined Datawrapper, an open source project that aims to provide simple, embeddable charts for journalists. Really, no fancy stuff here, we're just talking about line charts and bar charts.
It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. Not a web designer or developer?
The arts — free and on-demand The Space pilot service came to an end on 31 October 2013. You can watch The Space Journey to see some of the highlights from the last 18 months and hear from those who’ve contributed to the creation of this new digital service for the arts. The Space, the online partnership between Arts Council England and the BBC is planning to re-launch in Spring/Summer 2014, subject to BBC Trust approval, as a dynamic new space for artists and audiences to invent and explore brilliant digital art, live, free and on-demand. It will be the place for artists to experiment, take risks and think big. It will offer audiences a range of new ideas from exclusive new commissions and early ‘try-outs’ to unmissable world premiere live events.

Nathan Yau’s new book “Data Points” is out, and while I am still waiting for a copy, here is already a short contribution I made — a few paragraphs of bla: Nathan Yau: With client work, you must hear “innovative”, “compelling”, and “engaging” often. Personally, I get a lot of this, and potential clients often don’t have data to work with.

Daily Infographic | A New Infographic Every Day | Data Visualization, Information Design and InfographicsI love horror movies. My first encounter with a horror movie was when I was only a kid of about 7 or 8 years spending the night with my grandfather. Every time I would stay with him, we would go to the local Hastings and pick out a couple of movies to watch. (Anybody here remembering renting movies?) Every time I went into a movie rental store, the first place I would go would be the horror section. My parents would never let me watch any scary movies, because apparently, The Exorcist and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre were “not good” for my mind.
