CourseWiki - CS448B Data Visualization The world is awash with increasing amounts of data, and we must keep afloat with our relatively constant perceptual and cognitive abilities. Visualization provides one means of combating information overload, as a well-designed visual encoding can supplant cognitive calculations with simpler perceptual inferences and improve comprehension, memory, and decision making. Furthermore, visual representations may help engage more diverse audiences in the process of analytic thinking. In this course we will study techniques and algorithms for creating effective visualizations based on principles from graphic design, visual art, perceptual psychology, and cognitive science.
Data Visualization "Quadrant" « Data Visualization For many years, Gartner keeps annoying me every January by publishing so called “Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms” (MQ4BI for short) and most vendors (mentioned in it; this is funny, even Donald Farmer quotes MQ4BI) almost immediately re-published it either on so-called reprint (e.g. here – for a few months) area of Gartner website or on own website; some of them also making this “report” available to web visitors in exchange for contact info – for free. To channel my feeling toward Gartner to a something constructive, I decided to produce my own “Quadrant” for Data Visualization Platforms (DV “Quadrant” or Q4DV for short) – it is below and is a work in-progress and will be modified and republished overtime: 3 DV Leaders (green dots in upper right corner of Q4DV above) compared with each other and with Microsoft BI stack on this blog, as well as voted in DV Poll on LinkedIn.

Smart Data >>(vidéo) Les données des cinq premiers millions de trajets du service de vélos en libre service de Londres ont été traitées, et rendues visuellement. Un document étonnant, qui est aussi une aide à la décision pour les services de transport. par Tyler Falk Le système de vélos en libre service de Londres (appelé Barclays Cycle Hire), équivalent de Vélib’ à Paris et Vélov’ à Lyon, est extrêmement populaire. Visualisation de données: cinq millions de trajets à vélo en libre service
Visualiser comment une image virale se propage sur Facebook Dans les milieux de la communication de marques, du marketing, de l’influence en ligne, etc. la cartographie dans toutes ses variantes devient un outil clef, et notamment les visualisations interactives. Dernière expérimentation en date, le projet Virality de Facebook Stories qui explore les modes de propagation d’une image dite virale (c’est à dire qui a pu être partagée sur un court laps de temps de manière très importante entre les membres de plusieurs communautés). Le résultat est plutôt esthétique et puissant.
Is Data Visualization the Future of Art? | Picture This “Why are we picking at these carcasses of creativity?” Holly Finn asks in a recent Wall Street Journal article, pointing her critical finger at the particular corpse of Damien Hirst’s creative corpus currently on show at the Tate Modern. “We should instead be celebrating the really new and relevant: the rise of the data visualizers. Their medium is the one with momentum, the one genuinely changing how we think and feel. And it's about to boom.” More than just more Hirst bashing, Finn’s article, titled “Making Data Beautiful,” raises the question of whether old fashioned art is dead and today’s art should be as digital and information driven as our world.

Visualization Pantheon, a project from the Macro Connections group at The MIT Media Lab, explores cultural influences across countries and domains. To make our efforts tractable, Pantheon will not focus on culture, as it is understood in its broadest sense, but on cultural production. In a broad sense, culture can be understood as all of the information that humans—or animals —generate and transmit through non-genetic means . At Pantheon, however, we do not focus on the entire range of cultural information, but in a subset of this information that we define narrowly as cultural production.
We all know that everything you see on TV, and much of what you read online, is ultimately owned by a few mega corporations. But if you were pressed about how much those companies actually own, I’d bet you’d be off by about a factor of 2. Frugal Dad--the same company behind that Walmart infographic we did recently--took it upon themselves to show exactly how concentrated our media landscape actually is. As the chart rather alarmingly points out, the revenue for those six companies is $275.9 billion. Which sounds like an awfully big number--and starts to set your bullshit detector off. (For one, GE’s revenues alone are $150 billion, and almost all of that comes from heavy industry and finance. The Mega Companies Behind 90% Of Media
"When to use which chart" is the first question you may ask to yourself when building an application. In this application, you may get an idea of what data can be displayed in the most effective way. This application will walk you through on when to use which chart in which mode etc. Data Visualization
Outside of the nonsensical urban tesseract known as the West Village, Manhattan’s street grid system is famously simple: Avenues run north/south(ish), streets run east/west. A phrase like "5th Avenue and 33rd Street" isn’t just an arbitrary address, it’s a cartesian coordinate that can actually help you get to where you’re going as well as recognize when you’ve gotten there. With a system this easy, it’s hard not to wish the whole world used it. Harold Cooper's brilliant Google Maps mashup, ExtendNY, gives you an idea of what such a world would look like: Punch in any address or location on the globe, and it tells you what its NYC-style address is.

Plotting the Expansion of the US Through Post Offices This post was written by Andy Kirk, founder and editor of visualisingdata.com. Andy will be guest editing Information Aesthetics for a short period while Andrew takes a well earned break. Another of the most discussed and viewed projects over the past week has been the visualization by Derek Watkins [derekwatkins.wordpress.com] which presents an animated sequence of the expansion of the US depicted by the spread of post offices. You can read in detail about Derek's data gathering and design process in his blog post but in a nutshell he scraped post office location information from the USPS Postmaster Finder, plotted their lat/long coordinates and developed the animated visualization using Processing. The result is a fascinating historical journey through the expansion of the US as it transforms from the lopsided weight of population in the East to the development of the West.
por Fabricio Teixeira O número 48 foi proposto pela EARL (Emotion Annotation and Representation Language), uma empresa de robótica que tenta entender o comportamento humano para replicá-lo em robôs e máquinas. O mapeamento foi feito pelo americano Robert Plutchik, que detectou 8 emoções básicas, mais 8 avançadas e que resultam em 8 sentimentos. Misturando isso tudo, o ser humano é capaz de sentir 48 emoções diferentes. O desenho foi um achado do Wagner Brenner e, como ele mesmo disse, daria para passar uns bons minutos nessa mapa tentando entender melhor a regra do jogo. Para você, caro amigo UX, que passa o dia desenhando experiências para pessoas e tentando despertar nelas emoções que caso contrário elas não teriam – o mapa acima, dependendo do uso que você fizer dele, pode ser bem valioso. Um mapa com as 48 emoções que alguém pode sentir
Jeffrey Heer, Stanford University Ben Shneiderman, University of Maryland, College Park The increasing scale and availability of digital data provides an extraordinary resource for informing public policy, scientific discovery, business strategy, and even our personal lives. To get the most out of such data, however, users must be able to make sense of it: to pursue questions, uncover patterns of interest, and identify (and potentially correct) errors. In concert with data-management systems and statistical algorithms, analysis requires contextualized human judgments regarding the domain-specific significance of the clusters, trends, and outliers discovered in data.
