Data visualization tools for Linux A short list of visualization tools In this article, I provide a survey of a number of popular Linux data visualization tools and include some insight into their other capabilities. For example, does the tool provide a language for numerical computation? Is the tool interactive or does it operate solely in batch mode? Can you use the tool for image or digital signal processing?

Visual Literacy: An E-Learning Tutorial on Visualization for Communication, Engineering and Business Visual Cards for Collaboration and Team Creativity Making the Complex Clear Visual Literacy for Managers - How Sketching enables Visual Problem Solving and Communication (get the hardcopy edition at sketchingatwork.com) By clicking on a map or diagram thumbnail below, you can access an interactive graphic overview on tools, books, researchers in different visualization fields, as well as on key success factors of visualization. There is also an interactive organizing table that shows (incl. examples) one hundred visualization-based methods. Clicking on a particular tool, book, person, document, principle or method within a map opens the respective website or homepage in a new browser window or reveals an example (most maps were created with lets-focus).

T-Mobile Will Now Punish Customers Who Abuse Unlimited Data T-Mobile is today issuing a warning to customers: stop taking unlimited data to ridiculous extremes. In a post on T-Mobile’s blog, CEO John Legere has publicly called out “a fraction of a percent” of users who’ve been sucking down hundreds or even thousands of gigabytes of data each month. But these customers aren’t using all of that data on their smartphones alone; instead, T-Mobile claims they’ve come up with ways to conceal mobile tethering and hotspot usage. Tethering allows customers to get other devices (PCs, tablets, etc.) online using their smartphone data plan. With its $80 unlimited data plan, T-Mobile already offers a generous 7GB limit for tethering purposes. Once customers exceed that, their hotspot speeds are slowed down considerably.

The Work of Edward Tufte and Graphics Press Graphics Press LLC P.O. Box 430 Cheshire, CT 06410 800 822-2454 Edward Tufte is a statistician and artist, and Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Statistics, and Computer Science at Yale University. He wrote, designed, and self-published 4 classic books on data visualization. The New York Times described ET as the "Leonardo da Vinci of data," and Business Week as the "Galileo of graphics." He is now writing a book/film The Thinking Eye and constructing a 234-acre tree farm and sculpture park in northwest Connecticut, which will show his artworks and remain open space in perpetuity. The Best Data Visualization Projects of 2011 I almost didn't make a best-of list this year, but as I clicked through the year's post, it was hard not to. If last year (and maybe the year before) was the year of the gigantic graphic, this was the year of big data. Or maybe we've gotten better at filtering to the good stuff. (Fancy that.) In any case, data graphics continue to thrive and designers are putting more thought into what the data are about, and that's a very good thing. So here are my favorites from 2011, ordered by preference.

Bach in Lights: The Well-Tempered Clavier Graphically Visualized Through a Twisting Gallery of Light Bulbs This exceedingly clever animation by artist Alan Warburton transforms two compositions from J.S. Bach’s The Well Tempered Clavier (Prelude and Fugue in C Major) into a visual interpretation of music. Warburton used a form of graphical notation manifested as thousands of fluorescent light bulbs mounted around a gallery space and parking garage.

Graphic Sociology Cairo, Alberto. (2013) The Functional Art: An introduction to information graphics and visualization. Berkeley: New Riders, a division of Pearson. Overview Knight Foundation finance ScraperWiki for journalism ScraperWiki is the place to work together on data, and it is particularly useful for journalism. We are therefore very pleased to announce that ScraperWiki has won the Knight News Challenge! The Knight Foundation are spending $280,000 over 2 years for us to improve ScraperWiki as a platform for journalists, and to run events to bring together journalists and programmers across the United States. America has trailblazing organisations that do data and journalism well already – for example, both ProPublica and the Chicago Tribune have excellent data centers to support their news content. Our aim is to lower the barrier to entry into data driven journalism and to create (an order of magnitude) more of this type of success.

Man Buys 10.000 Undeveloped Negatives At a Local Auction And Discovers One of the Most Important Street Photographers of the Mid 20th Century - UpShout: Discover the Latest Internet Trends First and Share Them With Your Friends Imagine this : perhaps the most important street photographer of the twentieth century was a nanny who kept everything to herself. Nobody had ever seen her work and she was a complete unknown until the time of her death. For decades Vivian’s work hid in the shadows until decades later (in 2007), historical hobbyist John Maloof bought a box full of never developed negatives at a local auction for $380.
