The Architecture of a Data Visualization — Accurat studio 1. Composing the main architecture of the visualizationComposing the main architecture: this acts as the formalized base through which the main story will be mapped and displayed, upon this, one will see the most relevant patterns emerging from the story: the essential “map” that conceptually identifies where we are. This base is essentially a matrix or pattern that will serve as our organizer. It may be composed of cells, or distances, or other interrelated multiples. 2.

calming the senses with weighted blankets « Craft Nectar Note from Weeks: Both my husband and daughter are restless sorts. When our daughter was little and we went to a restaurant, Bill would take her out to run up and down the sidewalk while I paid the bill so she wouldn’t start squirming at the table. Those kids who kick the back of your seat on planes have the same issue. Therapists refer to them as “sensory seeking.” One therapist explained to me that the way I would feel if I sat in a car for ten hours straight is how she feels after sitting for one hour.

The Great Question Press Why should teachers nurture potent questioning skills and behaviors? As a practical matter, students need to be able to read between the lines, infer meaning, draw conclusions from disparate clues and avoid the traps of presumptive intelligence, bias and predisposition. They need these thinking skills to score well on increasingly tough school tests, but more importantly, they need these skills to score well on the increasingly baffling tests of life . . . how to vote? how to work? The Science of Visualization - SA Visual - Scientific American Blog Network What is visualization? When asked of data and information visualization professionals, answers will generally swirl around one of two punch lines…a visual tool that aids in (1) analysis or (2) communication of information. Last week in Chicago at IEEE VIS—an annual conference focused on the tools and technology of visualizing information—Purdue Polytechnic professor Vetria Byrd reminded me that visualization is also a process, one that requires us to think critically and sequentially though the information at-hand. Themes and Benchmarks As a first-time attendee of IEEE VIS, I was hoping to identify themes across presentations, in an effort to weave together a story and make sense of the barrage of information ahead of me.

Subtleties of Color (Part 1 of 6) : Elegant Figures : Blogs Introduction The use of color to display data is a solved problem, right? Just pick a palette from a drop-down menu (probably either a grayscale ramp or a rainbow), set start and end points, press “apply,” and you’re done. Although we all know it’s not that simple, that’s often how colors are chosen in the real world. As a result, many visualizations fail to represent the underlying data as well as they could. The purpose of data visualization—any data visualization—is to illuminate data. To show patterns and relationships that are otherwise hidden in an impenetrable mass of numbers.
