The Key to Media's Hidden Codes. How to use FF Chartwell. Primarily suitable for Adobe Creative Suite, FF Chartwell for print uses OpenType ligatures to transform strings of numbers automatically into charts.

How to use FF Chartwell

The data remains in a text box, allowing for easy updates and styling. It’s really simple to use; you just type a series of numbers like: ‘10+13+37+40’, turn on Stylistic Alternates or Stylistic Set 1 and a graph is automatically created. To help get you started using FF Chartwell we’ve created this video tutorial and here are some simple steps: ONE — Firstly always make sure the letter spacing is set to “0” (zero) TWO — Using the values 0-100, type the values, then use “+” to combine them into one chart.

THREE — Want to bring a bit of color to your work? Visualising Data. Visual thinking: los garabatos toman las riendas en la oficina. Antes de las palabras estuvieron los dibujos.

Visual thinking: los garabatos toman las riendas en la oficina

Ahora los garabatos retoman el poder con una forma nueva e innovadora de presentar proyectos o ideas: el visual thinking, que vuelve a las raíces creativas del ser humano compartiendo ideas y explicando conceptos dibujando. Para poder entender el nuevo recurso hemos hablado con Scott Matthews, el director creativo de Dachis Group, una empresa internacional experta en visual thinking basada en EEUU.

Digital visualization as a scholarly activity

E-mail: martyn.jessop{at} Thought processes are enhanced when ways are found to link external perception with internal mental processes by the use of graphic aids. Such aids range from scribbled diagrams to sophisticated linkages between thought, images, and text such as those employed by Leonardo da Vinci. These tools allow visual perception to be harnessed in the dynamic processes associated with the creation or discovery of new knowledge.

These words however will probably not be understood by 38th Century scientists because languages of today will eventually become obsolete and forgotten. Before we are four years old, most of us have learned The Alphabet Song. Before children learn to read and write, they do not know the difference between a line drawing and a letter. Early on however, we are taught to make distinctions between words and pictures and to not think of them in the same way.

Visual Organization: Scientists do it, Why Don’t You?

Sure. We’ve all been there before. Interestingly enough, scientists could be changing that. Recently I came across this cool article from the National Science Foundation (NSF), talking about how scientists are now using a cool tool that helps them visually organize related documents. The Visual Thinking Revolution is Here! We are in the midst of a “Visual Thinking Revolution” and leaders in all types of organizations are embracing visual thinking as a literacy of the future.

Alors que des métaphores exprimant un croisement de sens sont parfois qualifiées de « synesthétiques », une vraie synesthésie d'origine neurologique est involontaire et concernerait une personne sur 23, soit environ 4 % de la population[1]. Il est toutefois difficile de quantifier précisément le nombre de personnes véritablement synesthètes dans une population donnée, cette notion étant subjective car basée sur la perception personnelle. Si certaines personnes peuvent ignorer leur synesthésie (car vivant avec depuis toujours sans le savoir[2]), d'autres peuvent se déclarer synesthètes sans l'être véritablement, ou à des degrés considérablement plus faibles que d'autres personnes, s'approchant d'une perception « normale ».

Ainsi, il a pu être avancé que la synesthésie ne concernait qu'une personne sur 2 000[1], bien que cette statistique semble désormais erronée. Kevin T. Copy Queries(RSZC) across infoprovi.

Visual Thinking Evolution. A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea.

Visual Thinking Evolution

Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information. Mind maps may also aid recall of existing memories.
