Protovis Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)! Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example.

Citadel on the Move > Open Data > Convert My Dataset Here you can transform your data into the Citadel format. Using the Citadel format will allow you to use our Application Generation Tool to make apps and make your data useful to other people. Citadel have created this convertor to make is easy for you to change your excel sheets, CSV files or other information into the Citadel format. To use the convertor, you will need a basic level of technical knowledge and to your data to have the following characteristics: Each entry in the dataset should have a Title, an Address, a Category (e.g. event, restaurant, parking space ect...) and an ID (a number attached to each record) all in separate columns.

Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them. Gephi, the "Open Graph Viz Platform", is not just for the hobbiest node nerd. It is a hardcore, professional tool for network researchers and other smarty pants. If you know the difference between Yifan Hu and Fruchterman Reingold, then you can use this tool effectively.

SWF Charts > Introduction XML/SWF Charts is a simple, yet powerful tool to create attractive charts and graphs from XML data. Create an XML source to describe a chart, then pass it to this tool's flash file to generate the chart. The XML source can be prepared manually, or generated dynamically using any scripting language (PHP, ASP, CFML, Perl, etc.) Student Performance Dashboard Dashboard Description: Top section gives comparative analysis of Class teachers Maths class (based on latest math assessment score) with the her other classes, overall school performance and district. Looking at the data her current class performance is below Average compared to her other classes. Class Summary: All Students are categorised in different colors based on their latest math assessment score. Green is for top performers, Red is for poor scorers, so that class teacher can quickly analyse which student requires more attention. Up and down arrows ( next to Current Course grade) shows students’ performance has gone up or down against the grade goal.

Welcome to the Virtual Crash Course in Design Thinking Welcome to the’s Virtual Crash Course resource page! We know not everyone can make a trip to the to experience how we teach design thinking. So, we created this online version of one of our most frequently sought after learning tools. Using the video, handouts, and facilitation tips below, we will take you step by step through the process of hosting or participating in a 90 minute design challenge. Case study: A brief review of online visualisation tools that can help There is a growing range of online tools to help users their data. This brief review highlights four online visualisation tools that can help. The links page also links to lots more useful resources. Online tools that can help visualise data (these tools are free to use, but any data uploaded is typically then available on the system for other users) highlighted below include: On the resources and links page, we also link to free software applications and libraries for visualising data, and development languages for more sophisticated data visualisation.
