Workshop Findings. By workshop conveners: Kim Kastens, Tim Shipley, and Martin Storksdieck (last updated 1 May 2018) Introduction Visualizations can be a powerful tool for both thinking and communicating.

Workshop Findings

This website is the product of a workshop designed to gather, organize, and disseminate good ideas for how educators can help learners extract insights from visualizations and express their own ideas via visualizations, and can assess learners' progress towards visualization mastery. By "visualizations," we include both data-driven visualizations (graphs, maps, and other images built from quantitative data) and concept-driven visualizations (diagrams, flow charts, concept maps and other images generated from a concept or theory). Learning Goals for skillful visualizers We agreed upon a shared set of learning goals that span across disciplines, ages, and visualization types. Overarching takeaways from the workshop Educating Skillful Visualizers workshop. PDB-101: Goodsell Gallery: Coronavirus. Coronavirus, 2020 This painting depicts a coronavirus just entering the lungs, surrounded by mucus secreted by respiratory cells, secreted antibodies, and several small immune systems proteins.

PDB-101: Goodsell Gallery: Coronavirus

The virus is enclosed by a membrane that includes the S (spike) protein, which will mediate attachment and entry into cells, M (membrane) protein, which is involved in organization of the nucleoprotein inside, and E (envelope) protein, which is a membrane channel involved in budding of the virus and may be incorporated into the virion during that process. The nucleoprotein inside includes many copies of the N (nucleocapsid) protein bound to the genomic RNA. NodeXL Graph Gallery. VisGuides. Data Visualisation & Storytelling.

Neuroimaging: Visualizing Brain Structure and Function

Introduction to Neuroimaging Few advances have transformed the fields of neuroscience and medicine like brain imaging technology. VIS. (We are very thankful that Dr.


Steffen Oeltze from the University of Magdeburg Visualization Group could write this short report on the medical visualization-related papers at IEEE VIS 2013 for us.) I was very happy to see that in 2013, the IEEE Vis conference hosted again a separate session on biomedical visualization. On top of the five talks given in this session, five more interesting talks, also related to MedVis, were distributed over the conference program. Before the event started, I considered it a good omen that the inwards of the conference hotel looked like a gigantic corpus with the conference attendees accommodated along the costal arches.

GIP 58: The Geologic Time Spiral, A Path to the Past

Most of the evidence for an ancient Earth is contained in the rocks that form the Earth's crust. The rock layers themselves—like pages in a long and complicated history—record the events of the past, and buried within them are the remains of life—the plants and animals that evolved from organic structures that existed 3 billion years ago. Also contained in rocks once molten are radioactive elements whose isotopes provide Earth with an atomic clock. Within these rocks, "parent" isotopes decay at a predictable rate to form "daughter" isotopes. TULP interactive. C82: Works of Nicholas Rougeux. Chandra Sky Map.

This is an illustrated logarithmic scale conception of the observable Universe with the Solar System at the centre. Encircling the Solar System are the inner and outer planets, Kuiper belt, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri star, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, other nearby galaxies, the cosmic web, cosmic microwave radiation, and invisible plasma produced by the Big Bang at the very edges. See below for uncropped and zoomable versions. Created by musician and artist Pablo Carlos Budassi, the image is based on logarithmic maps of the Universe put together by Princeton University researchers, as well as images produced by NASA based on observations made by their telescopes and roving spacecraft. Logarithmic maps are a really handy way of visualising something as inconceivably huge as the observable Universe, because each increment on the axes increases by a factor of 10 (or order of magnitude) rather than by equal increments.

Pablo Carlos Budassi. This 1-minute animation will change your perception of life in the Universe. If extraterrestrial life is anything like what we see on Earth, then chances are it's living on Earth-like planets thousands, or even millions, of light-years from our Solar System.

Today, astronomers have detected over 1,700 extra-solar planets, or exoplanets, with NASA's Kepler Space Telescope. While it's hard to visualise so many planets, a second-year astronomy graduate student at the University of Washington, Ethan Kruse, has found a way that is both mesmerising and oddly humbling. Check out his animation above, where every circle you see is a planet.

The Fallen of World War II - Data-driven documentary about war & peace. Why do we visualize data? Why do we visualize data? Do data visualizations aim to inform audiences effectively? Or do they simply aim to catch people’s eye, providing the just gist of the data? This is a question which has been hotly debated by some of the leading authors in the field of data visualization recently.

Data visualization is a spectrum, determined by your data, your objectives and your audience. Whichever visualization style you choose, it should be the most effective one for the purpose at hand. However, to limit data visualization to just being used for this purpose is stifling and ignores a vast array of other perfectly valid reasons we might visualize data. VisIt. About VisIt VisIt is an Open Source, interactive, scalable, visualization, animation and analysis tool. From Unix, Windows or Mac workstations, users can interactively visualize and analyze data ranging in scale from small (<101 core) desktop-sized projects to large (>105 core) leadership-class computing facility simulation campaigns.

Subtleties of Color (Part 1 of 6) : Elegant Figures : Blogs. Introduction The use of color to display data is a solved problem, right? Just pick a palette from a drop-down menu (probably either a grayscale ramp or a rainbow), set start and end points, press “apply,” and you’re done. Although we all know it’s not that simple, that’s often how colors are chosen in the real world.

As a result, many visualizations fail to represent the underlying data as well as they could. The purpose of data visualization—any data visualization—is to illuminate data. To show patterns and relationships that are otherwise hidden in an impenetrable mass of numbers. Recommendations: Charting a Faster Course to Analytic Insights.
