20 Great Infographics of 2012

To help review some of the things that happened, here are 20 of the best static infographics from the year. 1. There were several space related events this year. NASA’s Curiosity rover landed on mars, and successfully began collecting data. Data Visualization: Modern Approaches. Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive.

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches

There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data – tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results. In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years. So what can we expect? Let’s take a look at the most interesting modern approaches to data visualization as well as related articles, resources and tools. M.A. Thesis. Visual tools for the socio–semantic web This thesis contributes to a new discipline of science: web science, as introduced by Tim Berners-Lee and others in 2006.

M.A. Thesis

Designers, computer scientists, sociologists, cognitive scientists, psychologists etc. have individual perspectives on the complex and rapidly evolving interplay of technological and social infrastructure and human society. However, a well-defined discipline — unifying the scientific analysis of social and human factors to understand, but also to shape and steer web developments by informed design and engineering —is not established yet. This is onformative a studio for generative design. - / Phylogenetic tree. In a rooted phylogenetic tree, each node with descendants represents the inferred most recent common ancestor of the descendants, and the edge lengths in some trees may be interpreted as time estimates.

Phylogenetic tree

Each node is called a taxonomic unit. Internal nodes are generally called hypothetical taxonomic units, as they cannot be directly observed. Trees are useful in fields of biology such as bioinformatics, systematics, and comparative phylogenetics. Unrooted trees illustrate only the relatedness of the leaf nodes and do not require the ancestral root to be known or inferred. History[edit] Tree structure. A tree structure showing the possible hierarchical organization of an encyclopedia.

Tree structure

The original Encyclopédie used a tree diagram to show the way in which its subjects were ordered. A tree structure is a way of representing the hierarchical nature of a structure in a graphical form. It is named a "tree structure" because the classic representation resembles a tree, even though the chart is generally upside down compared to an actual tree, with the "root" at the top and the "leaves" at the bottom. Terminology and properties[edit] The names of relationships between nodes are modeled after family relations. Revised Graphic Organizers Make Mapping Out Ideas Easy—and Savable!

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly.[1][2] They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.[3][4] The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, or information architecture.[2] Overview[edit]

Is Data Visualization Useful? You’ll Have to Prove It. Great data visualization is hard to measure: you can’t prove you have a good chart.

Is Data Visualization Useful? You’ll Have to Prove It.

Unless you can convince your employer to deploy at least two different formats/layouts and are able to compare results, you can say “this is a good chart” but that’s an act of faith, not an act of science. It’s True Because It Rhymes Information visualization experts like to evaluate a chart based on its compliance to some more or less accepted standards (Tufte’s data-ink ratio, for example). That’s like saying “it must be true because it rhymes”: the truth is defined by the language itself, not by the real world. RobertFuddBewusstsein17Jh.png (926×1345) Инфографика.
