The Overview Project » How Overview turns Documents into Pictures

These visualizations are saying something about the documents, which you can interpret if you know a little about how they’re plotted. There are two visualizations in the current prototype version of Overview, and both are based on document clustering. The first is the items plot, which grew out of the proof-of-concept system we presented a year ago. Every document is a dot. Similar documents get pulled together to form visible groups, that is, clusters. Overview also has a “tree” view. The tree view and the items plot show the same thing, just in different ways. Extracting Key Words All of Overview’s clustering depends on grouping similar documents together, but what does that mean?

Ripples shows you: People who have reshared the link will be displayed with their own circle. Inside the circle will be people who have reshared the link from that person (and so on). Circles are roughly sized based on the relative influence of that person. The comments users added when they reshared a link are displayed in the sidebar of Ripples. At the bottom of the Ripples page, you can play an animated version of the visualization that shows how the link was shared over time.

Beneath the timeline on the Ripples page statistics on the link. While Ripples displays a lot of cool information, you’re not actually seeing all the action that’s taken place. Not sure if a post is public? Blog » Hexbins! Binning is a general term for grouping a dataset of N values into less than N discrete groups.

These groups/bins may be spatial, temporal, or otherwise attribute-based. In this post I’m only talking about spatial (long-lat) and 2-dimensional attribute-based (scatterplot) bins. Such binnings may be thought of as 2D histograms. This may make more or less sense after what lies beneath.

Google Correlate. The art of data visualization. Mam_news's Bookmarks (Data Visualizations) Axiis : Data Visualization Framework. Protovis. Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots.


Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)! Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example. Protovis is no longer under active development.The final release of Protovis was v3.3.1 (4.7 MB). This project was led by Mike Bostock and Jeff Heer of the Stanford Visualization Group, with significant help from Vadim Ogievetsky. Updates June 28, 2011 - Protovis is no longer under active development. September 17, 2010 - Release 3.3 is available on GitHub. May 28, 2010 - ZOMG!
