Data Visualisation Examples

Movement Visualisation. Data visualisation tools. 40 must-see vídeos about data visualization and infographics. Our selection of keynotes, TED Talks and interviews by some of the top names in the field (The Joy of Stats, by Hans Rolling, one of the must-see videos) After the success of our collection of data visualization presentations a few weeks ago, we decided to push even further our research of multimedia resources and take the risk of selecting some videos.

40 must-see vídeos about data visualization and infographics

And we say risk, because the abundance of data visualization videos on the Internet is simply mind-blowing. Just think about it: How many events are there about information visualization? Dozens, maybe hundreds every year. That means that a lot of good stuff was left behind, so apologies for that – but feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments section. Designing Data with Data. Data visualization books: How to start your personal library The Excel Charts Blog. There are many approaches to data visualization.

Data visualization books: How to start your personal library The Excel Charts Blog

Take well-know authors like Tufte, Cleveland, Ware, Few, Bertin or McCandless. There is some overlap, but they all approach data visualization from a different angle. That’s great news for you: this means that you can come up with a unique point of view that reflects your interests and needs. I suppose the books you buy are consistent with that view. Let me give you my own example. So, after reading Enrico’s last post, The Data Visualization Beginner’s Toolkit I decided to follow Andy Kirk’s suggestion (“as many people as possibly should share what helped them”) and list my entire data visualization library. Italicized titles are books I have access to, but I should buy them anyway. Theory Other Authors: Presentations Perception.

"Generative Design" – A Computational Design Guidebook - Review. “The main change in the design process achieved by using generative design is that traditional craftsmanship recedes into the background, and abstraction and information become the new principal elements.”

"Generative Design" – A Computational Design Guidebook - Review

Thus reads a rather pertinent nugget of wisdom tucked into the concluding notes of Generative Design: Visualize, Program and Create with Processing, an epic computational design text by Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Groß, Julia Laub and editor Claudius Lazzeroni. With that point, the authors are describing how the syntax of code and data are intrinsically tied to new modes of composition and production. This statement also speaks to the organizational logic of the book, which weighs-in at a whopping 470 pages of thoughtfully categorized generative strategies that have been broken down into bite-sized thematic walkthroughs.

37 Data-ish Blogs

I'm a bit of a feed addict subscribing to just about anything with a chart or a mention of statistics on it (and naturally have to do some feed-cleaning every now and then). In a follow up to my short list last year, here are the data-ish blogs, some old and some new, that continue to post interesting stuff. Data and Statistics By the Numbers - Column from The New York Times visual Op-ed columnist, Charles Blow, who also used to be NYT's graphics director.Data Mining - Matthew Hurst, scientist at Microsoft's MSN, also the co-creator of BlogPulse.Statistical Modeling - We might disagree on certain things, but Andrew's blog is one of the few active pure statistics blogs.The Numbers Guy - Data-minded reporting from Carl Bialik of the Wall Street Journal.Basketball Geek - Like statistical analysis and basketball?

What is Visualization? A Definition. What is a visualization?

What is Visualization? A Definition

The word is problematic, and there have been very few definitions that try to define this field we are working in. More importantly: what is not a visualization? It is easy to argue that anything visual is a visualization in some way – but does that mean anything? Here is a definition of visualization and a few examples to illustrate the different criteria. Definition The following are three minimal criteria that any visualization has to fulfill to be considered a pragmatic visualization. The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.
