Data Wrangler UPDATE: The Stanford/Berkeley Wrangler research project is complete, and the software is no longer actively supported. Instead, we have started a commercial venture, Trifacta. For the most recent version of the tool, see the free Trifacta Wrangler. iVisDesigner iVisDesigner stands for Information Visualization Designer, which is a platform in which users can interactively create customized information visualization designs for a wide range of data structure. iVisDesigner was started around March 2013 as the undergraduate thesis project of Donghao Ren, its overall goal comes partially from the previous Visualization Assembly Line project, which allows users to freely create axis-based visualizations for multidimensional datasets, like scatterplots and parallel coordinates. In iVisDesigner, we employed a new approach. By allowing users to interactively create mappings from data elements to graphical elements, we support interactive creation of information visualization designs. iVisDesigner is much more expressive, allowing a wide range of visualization designs for different data structures be accomplished without any programming. Design and Program: Donghao Ren, University of California, Santa Barbara, Peking University.

The data was about employment in the financial industry, and we expected to see Manhattan light up—but on our map, Manhattan was barely bigger than a freckle. Meanwhile, thinly populated rural counties (ahem, Lincoln County, Nevada) occupied vast swaths of screen space. Much of the West was visually over-represented, while urban areas were not represented enough. There’s an essential rural bias in geographic visualizations that we needed to overcome.

Evergreen Cooperatives take the spotlight in Cleveland, OH during GOP Convention The presence of the 2016 Republican National Convention cast a national spotlight on Cleveland, Ohio. Looking to highlight the struggles and hopes of ordinary low-income local residents, many visiting journalists found their way to the Evergreen Cooperatives, a group of three linked employee-owned social enterprises based in the Greater University Circle area of Cleveland's East Side.
