Visual Text Analysis with ImageMagick – Zach Whalen In my classes, I’ve been talking about and showing off the kinds of visual analysis one can accomplish by extracting frames from video and comparing them in a montage format. This approach has been pioneered by Lev Manovich, Jeremy Douglass and others under the heading of Software Studies, and Manovich’s website discusses this technique and provides some tools for these and other cultural analytics. ImagePlot (a macro for ImageJ) is one such tool that many have had success with. Academic Language Development Note: Bronx schools in NYC are using a special combination of SciGen units to prepare students for a yearly science fair.Download Science Fair Packet 6.4 Is that really a fair test? This unit introduces students to what “fair” means in science and how to make a test fair.

Interactive Dynamics for Visual Analysis Graphics 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.

Download 6600 Free Films from The Prelinger Archives and Use Them However You Like Features, commercials, art pieces, stock footage, home movies, propaganda: the history of cinema so far has produced countless individual forms, all of which also count as documentaries. Watch any kind of film made sufficiently long ago and you look through a window onto the attitudes, aesthetics, and accoutrements of another time. And if it’s one made long enough ago or of obscure enough ownership to fall into the public domain, you can incorporate that piece of history into your own modern, era-spanning work in any way you like. Now, Prelinger Archives has made that easier than ever by making more than 6600 films free on the Internet Archive to download and use. “Prelinger Archives was founded in 1983 by Rick Prelinger in New York City,” says the collection’s about page. “Over the next twenty years, it grew into a collection of over 60,000 ‘ephemeral’ (advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur) films.

Exploration Education Physical Science Advanced {Homeschool Review} Often when I write a product review, I base my opinion on using the product for six or eight weeks. This year we used nearly all of Exploration Education's Physical Science Advanced program before I finalized the review. I'm just as pleased with the program after more than thirty weeks of lessons as I was when Brennan first started using it last fall. Fast Thinking and Slow Thinking Visualisation Last week I attended the Association of American Geographers Annual Conference and heard a talk by Robert Groves, Director of the US Census Bureau. Aside the impressiveness of the bureau’s work I was struck by how Groves conceived of visualisations as requiring either fast thinking or slow thinking. Fast thinking data visualisations offer a clear message without the need for the viewer to spend more than a few seconds exploring them. These tend to be much simpler in appearance, such as my map of the distance that London Underground trains travel during rush hour. The explicit message of this map is that surprisingly large distances are covered across the network and that the Central Line rolling stock travels furthest. It is up to the reader to work out why this may be the case.

Stat eXplorer Interactive Statistical Visualization using Adobe Flash Statistics eXplorer integrates many common InfoVis and GeoVis methods required to make sense of statistical data, uncover patterns of interests, gain insight, tell-a-story and finally communicate knowledge. Statistics eXplorer was developed based on a component architecture and includes a wide range of visualization techniques enhanced with various interaction techniques and interactive features to support better data exploration and analysis. It also supports multiple linked views and integrated storytelling with a snapshot mechanism for capturing discoveries made during the exploratory data analysis process which can be used for sharing gained knowledge. The eXplorer applications are available on the NCVA/LiU web site for educational and research usage only.

Sci2 Manual SCOTT WEINGART, TED POLLEY ET AL The Science of Science (Sci2) Tool is a modular toolset specifically designed for the study of science. It supports the temporal, geospatial, topical, and network analysis and visualization of datasets at the micro (individual), meso (local), and macro (global) levels. Users of the tool can: access science datasets online or load their own; perform different types of analysis with the most effective algorithms available; use different visualizations to interactively explore and understand specific datasets; share datasets and algorithms across scientific boundaries.
