Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom. From SystemsWiki by Gene Bellinger, Durval Castro, Anthony Mills There is probably no segment of activity in the world attracting as much attention at present as that of knowledge management.

Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom

Yet as I entered this arena of activity I quickly found there didn't seem to be a wealth of sources that seemed to make sense in terms of defining what knowledge actually was, and how was it differentiated from data, information, and wisdom. What follows is the current level of understanding I have been able to piece together regarding data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. I figured to understand one of them I had to understand all of them. According to Russell Ackoff [1989], a systems theorist and professor of organizational change, the content of the human mind can be classified into five categories: Ackoff indicates that the first four categories relate to the past; they deal with what has been or what is known.

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer.

What are the differences between mind maps and concept maps?

Concept maps or mind maps? the choice

(click to see larger) Sometimes you will have no choice. In an educational setting, some educators require their students to make concept maps, others mandate mind maps. But most of the time we are free to choose. Then, the key determinants of when you would use each type of map will usually be these: your motive in making the map, where you will make it, how you will use it once finished, the audience (if other than yourself) it is intended it for, if you are not drawing maps by hand, the software you use, and naturally your personal preference.

Mindmapping. The Largest Online Collection of Visual Content. The "map sandwich" By Charlie Frye, Esri Chief Cartographer Last week we started telling you about the new ArcGIS Online World Topographic Map.

The "map sandwich"

As I was working on the design of that map, with the intent of providing a better basis for mash-ups, I had an idea. It was born of frustration with the fact some mash-ups don’t work because too much information obscures the base map, making for an unreadable, often ugly result. Demographic layers represent a great example of the kind of information that just doesn’t always work well in a simple mash-up.

What I really needed was a way to “sandwich” the demography layer between the terrain and the reference information–that way the reference information would be legible, and I would still be able to understand the demography. Figure 1. Figure 2. The idea is to make a map that looks more like a map than a mash up. How the Map Sandwich Works.
