David McCandless , précurseur du design d’information, a donné une conférence à Paris dans le cadre des Rencontres RSLN aux Techdays . Après un entretien sur les définitions du design d’information, Claire et Camille reviennent sur ce qu’il faut retenir de ce rendez-vous entre McCandless et son public. Depuis 2009 et la parution de son livre « Information is beautiful » David McCandless est surnommé « le pape de la visualisation de données ».
Data is everywhere - and readily accessible The open data movement is finally beginning to have some real impact.
I love a good visualization. I’ve always been fascinated by those images that manage to inform and entertain at the same time.
A few years ago, we started doing info graphics by actually doing a lot of research on data and then working with a great group of guys to create art and visualization.
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 ]
It’s a sad fact of our cultural moment that anyone can marshall their own "facts" to support just about any argument or political position imaginable . (Thanks, Internet.) What’s worse, psychology studies have shown that rebutting factually impoverished arguments with actual facts has precisely the opposite effect one would hope: it actually makes people cling even tighter to their fictions .
Statistical graphics , also known as graphical techniques , are information graphics in the field of statistics used to visualize quantitative data .
The current issue of the Statistical Computing and Graphics Newsletter features two invited articles, which both look at the “graphical display of quantitative data” – one from the perspective of statistical graphics, and one from the perspective of information visualization. Robert Kosara writes from an InfoVis view:
Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data , meaning "information that has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information". [ 1 ]
