15 Stunning Examples of Data Visualization Data Visualization is a method of presenting information in a graphical form. Good data visualization should appear as if it is a work of art. This intrigues the viewer and draws them in so that they can further investigate the data and info that the graphic represents. 50 Great Examples of Data Visualization Wrapping your brain around data online can be challenging, especially when dealing with huge volumes of information. And trying to find related content can also be difficult, depending on what data you’re looking for. But data visualizations can make all of that much easier, allowing you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting, and often more useful manner. Below are 50 of the best data visualizations and tools for creating your own visualizations out there, covering everything from Digg activity to network connectivity to what’s currently happening on Twitter.

Information Aesthetics Showcase International Podcasts Special Thanks & Acknowledgements The emergent field of information aesthetics combines a rich variety of technical and artistic disciplines. Company Blog - Breaking Bin Laden: visualizing the power of a single tweet A full hour before the formal announcement of Bin-Laden’s death, Keith Urbahn posted his speculation on the emergency presidential address. Little did he know that this Tweet would trigger an avalanche of reactions, Retweets and conversations that would beat mainstream media as well as the White House announcement. Keith Urbahn wasn’t the first to speculate Bin Laden’s death, but he was the one who gained the most trust from the network. Why did this happen?

Bradford Paley: Map of science image in the journal Nature Update: This has now been published in many more places: the original Nature article, Discover Magazine, SEED, Geo, the Eastern European Edition and India, Brazil, etc., and more books and papers. Since the image has proven to be popular (we still get print & publication requests, four lears later!), I decided to rework the existing image layers, modifying only the graphical representation—no structure—to see whether I could improve the information layering and remedy some of the faults I outline at the bottom of this page. Here's the new version: I was surprised at how much clearer it could be made. I think the new one has many of the structural faults I outlined below, but improves several things:
Physics Simulations and Artwork Here is a 3D view of a hydrogren atom in the 4f state. The left image was made in C++ using a technique described by Krzysztof Marczak to make it volumetric like a cloud of smoke. The right image was made in Mathematica by adding 2D cross-sectional layers. The animations were made in POV-Ray using DF3 density files. The right animation shows what a "12o" orbital might look like.

20 Great Visualizations of 2011 As the popularity of visualizations grows, so does their range and quality. Here’s a list of 20 of the best Static Visualizations, Interactive Visualizations, and Information Videos from 2011. (Note: while they are numbered for your convenience, the entries are not ranked.) Static Visualizations Often, static infographics are created without much thought, just as fodder to get clicks on the web. These eight, however, are well-considered visualizations that do a fantastic job of conveying information.1. How Might We Visualize Data in More Effective and Inspiring Ways We have many dashboards available to us today in many contexts: finance, forecasts, consumption, demographics, etc. We witness the emergence of beautiful graphical representations more frequently than ever. Instead of flooding this post with examples of data visualization, I would like to put the spotlight on how we processes them, and what challenges that presents. A couple of years ago, we were tasked at IDEO to design dashboard visualizations for Ford's next generation hybrid vehicle, the Ford Fusion. Hybrid cars are efficient only if the driver maximizes the car's potential; in other words, if the driver learns to make sense of the complex mechanics of two motors and regenerative braking.
