SVS Animation 3827 - Perpetual Ocean

The visualization does not include a narration or annotations; the goal was to use ocean flow data to create a simple, visceral experience. This visualization was produced using model output from the joint MIT/JPL project: Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II or ECCO2. ECCO2 uses the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm) to synthesize satellite and in-situ data of the global ocean and sea-ice at resolutions that begin to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow current systems, which transport heat and carbon in the oceans. ECCO2 provides ocean flows at all depths, but only surface flows are used in this visualization.

The dark patterns under the ocean represent the undersea bathymetry. This visualization was shown at the SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 Computer Animation Festival.

Although she's already quite familiar to fans of women's golf, Alexis Thompson hasn't yet become a household name, despite the fact that she's made golf history... a couple of times already.

The Awesome "Getting to Know Alexis Thompson" Infographic

At age 16, the newly crowned Navistar LPGA Classic Champion is seen by many in golf media as the great American hope for women's golf.... and some are even suggesting she may singlehandedly save the LPGA. However, most of the folks I've been speaking to at the driving range and on the golf course this week, have no idea who Alexis Thompson is. Granted, these people have mainly been men... recreational golfers who probably don't know Ricky Fowler from Dustin Johnson, either. Left vs Right: US Political Spectrum. Shared storage for OpenStack based on DRBD-Mozilla Firefox. Storage is a tricky part of the cloud environment. We want it to be fast, to be network-accessible and to be as reliable as possible.

One way is to go to the shop and buy yourself a SAN solution from a prominent vendor for solid money. Another way is to take commodity hardware and use open source magic to turn it into distributed network storage. Guess what we did? We have several primary goals ahead.

Ideas, issues, concepts, subjects - v. Perceptual Edge. Show Me the Numbers. Most presentations of quantitative information are poorly designed—painfully so, often to the point of misinformation.

Show Me the Numbers

This problem, however, is rarely noticed and even more rarely addressed. We use tables and graphs to communicate quantitative information: the critical numbers that measure the health, identify the opportunities, and forecast the future of our organizations. Even the best information is useless, however, if its story is poorly told. This problem exists because almost no one has ever been trained to design tables and graphs for effective and efficient communication. Show Me the Numbers: Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten is the most accessible, practical, and comprehensive guide to table and graph design available. Information aesthetics. FlowingData. Data Visualization and Statistics. Data Visualization and Statistics. 37 Data-ish Blogs.

You might not know it, but there are actually a ton of data and visualization blogs out there. 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?
