After learning the basics of R, I decided to learn something harder last week. I picked Social Network Analysis (SNA) to learn the concepts of SNA and R. My primary interest in SNA is visual exploration of networks, so I needed to find a tool first. Which tool to use for visual SNA? Features needed: 1) graphical representation of network
We offer a number of programs that make it easy for institutions to purchase the Visual Thesaurus and provide access to their population at a discounted rate. We also offer special discounts to accredited academic institutions. Site Licenses to the Visual Thesaurus: With a Site License, your entire organization has instant access to the Visual Thesaurus, VocabGrabber , the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee , and the online magazine . The Visual Thesaurus is easy to install and administrate. We offer:
The Visual Thesaurus is an interactive dictionary and thesaurus which creates word maps that blossom with meanings and branch to related words. Its innovative display encourages exploration and learning. You'll understand language in a powerful new way. Say you have a meaning in mind, like "happy." The VT helps you find related words, from "cheerful" to "euphoric."
We have designed Thinkmap to be easily extendable, fast, and able to integrate with a wide variety of legacy systems. Thinkmap is composed of a number of loosely coupled components that can be quickly reconfigured to fulfill many different visualization tasks. These components are lightweight, flexible, and standards-based. The unique features of Thinkmap start with a sophisticated core. The core enables the dynamic, asynchronous flow of data that is Thinkmap's hallmark.

Several people have asked me how I produced the visualizations that I used in my talk on del.icio.us . While those visualizations were constructed with a rather eclectic mixture of homebrewed code, assorted applications, and a good bit of elbow grease, I decided to put together a tutorial for people who might be interested in this type of visual exploration, but are not inclined to write custom Perl code to do so. Hence, I have selected a combination of two very nice applications for Mac OS X - Anthracite and OmniGraffle - to produce similar visualizations. Neither application is free, but both have free trial periods, should you be inclined to check them out.
Document Actions Just as I did the last list " Open Source Structured Graphics Libraries Written in Java " I realized that I needed an entirely new category. Well here's that category, network or graph visualization written in open source Java. It's got some pretty stunning visuals so I recommend that everyone eyeball them. GINY - There is currently no good, open-source Java graphing library. GINY seeks to fill this need.
Last week, the Neo4J plugin for Gephi was released. Gephi is an open-source visualization and manipulation tool that allows users to interactively browse and explore graphs . The graphs themselves can be loaded through a variety of file formats. Thanks to Martin Škurla , it is now possible to load and lazily explore graphs that are stored in a Neo4J data store. In one of my previous articles , I explained how Neo4J and the Tinkerpop framework can be used to load and query RDF triples. The newly released Neo4J plugin now allows to visually browse these RDF triples and perform some more fancy operations such as finding patterns and executing social network analysis algorithms from within Gephi itself.
...more example pictures In 2004 a book was published by the Interaction Design Institute of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Zürich, on the subject of "the interaction" and its place in the world of man-machine-communications. The book, Total Interaction, is a compilation of nineteen essays which offer different perspectives on this complex thematic field; the issues they tackle form the basis of the Institute’s work, research and teaching. As "Total Interaction" took shape, it became apparent to its editors that the concepts under discussion would have to be illustrated, in order to help the reader understand not only the content of each individual essay, but also the thematic links relating the essays to each other.
It’s hard to instill the importance of using a multitude of passwords across services, especially when it’s tough to remember, just how many times did I use that old go-to password, anyway? The Password Reuse Visualizer by Paul Sawaya isn’t an art project or artist’s rendering. It’s a free Firefox add-on that you can download to view the relationships of your own Firefox-saved passwords. And it’s extraordinarily effective at cutting through any personal denial that you may have about your own password diligence. Each password you have is rendered with a single green dot. The sites that share each password are attached as blue dots.
Tulip is an information visualization framework dedicated to the analysis and visualization of relational data. Tulip aims to provide the developer with a complete library, supporting the design of interactive information visualization applications for relational data that can be tailored to the problems he or she is addressing. Written in C++ the framework enables the development of algorithms, visual encodings, interaction techniques, data models, and domain-specific visualizations. One of the goal of Tulip is to facilitates the reuse of components and allows the developers to focus on programming their application.
Latest News January 2012. Our paper on Action Science Explorer was accepted by JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. See the Publications section below for more details. December 2011.
When you visit the doctor complaining of a cough or stomach pain, they usually seem to know what to do: They'll ask if you have trouble breathing, or check your heart rate. But it's all a little baffling: What are they checking for? What illnesses could it be? This remarkable new infographic by GE, working with MIT's SENSEable City Lab, peels back how various symptoms of illness are linked, giving you a tantalizing look into the mind of a doctor. The interactive chart is powered by 7.2 million medical records, gathered between 2005 and 2010. Using these, MIT's data wizards were able to figure out how often one symptom was linked to another.
