Gun Deaths In America This interactive graphic is part of our project exploring the more than 33,000 annual gun deaths in America and what it would take to bring that number down. See our stories on suicides among middle-age men, homicides of young black men and accidental deaths, or explore the menu for more coverage. Methodology The data in this interactive graphic comes primarily from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Multiple Cause of Death database, which is derived from death certificates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and is widely considered the most comprehensive estimate of firearm deaths.
One Dataset, Visualized 25 Ways “Let the data speak.” It’s a common saying for chart design. The premise — strip out the bits that don’t help patterns in your data emerge — is fine, but people often misinterpret the mantra to mean that they should make a stripped down chart and let the data take it from there. You have to guide the conversation though.
Textures.js Textures are useful for theselective perception of different categories View on Github Getting started -- from the top of d3.js -- var svg = d3.select("#example") .append("svg"); var t = textures.lines() .thicker(); svg.call(t); svg.append("circle") .style("fill", t.url());
Colorgorical To generate a palette with n colors, just enter the number of colors you want and click Generate. Bigger palettes will take longer than smaller palettes to make. Results will automatically appear when ready. For greater detail, please consult our paper or the source code. Score Importance Visual Business Intelligence For data sensemakers and others who are concerned with the integrity of data sensemaking and its outcomes, the most important book published in 2016 was Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy, by Cathy O’Neil. This book is much more than a clever title. It is a clarion call of imminent necessity. Data can be used in harmful ways. This fact has become magnified to an extreme in the so-called realm of Big Data, fueled by an indiscriminate trust in information technologies, a reliance on fallacious correlations, and an effort to gain efficiencies no matter the cost in human suffering. In Weapons of Math Destruction, O’Neil reveals the dangers of data-sensemaking algorithms that employ statistics to score people and institutions for various purposes in ways that are unsound, unfair, and yes, destructive.
Top 5 Free Data Visualization Tools Online Large data sets are meaningless in their raw form as they do not provide much analytical value. An array of numbers is not very helpful unless turned in to a summary (aggregated) table or a visualization. The latter may be often referred to as a diagram, chart or a graph. There are various visualization tools and web based software solutions that provide capabilities to visualize data and glean the story behind the numbers. Most advanced software tends to be pricey and unless you work for an organization which can justify such a cost, there is not whole much sense in giving up an arm and a leg to visually present numbers. Fortunately there are free data visualization tools online which can meet low to high complexity data visualization needs. An Easier Way to Schedule Meetings Today we're excited to launch Meetingbird Meet, the easiest way to schedule meetings with anyone. We've all experienced the pain of scheduling meetings. Emailing back and forth to find a time that works is frustrating and time-consuming, but newer meeting scheduling tools don't make it much easier either. Picking time slots every time you need to schedule a meeting quickly gets messy and inefficient, and virtual assistants are slow and expensive.
Making It Pictures “Making It” is a documentary film that explores the daily struggles of making a living, staying creative, and making it all up as we go along. The film focuses primarily on Eric Fortune, Andrew Bawidamann, and Brian Ewing discussing education, their business model, and the future of Illustration but ultimately asking, what does “Making It” mean to each artist? Andrew Bawidamann, Brian Ewing and Eric Fortune are three excellent artists who are in the middle of their careers. This stage of their journey is the toughest because they’re on the edge of success, “Making IT”.
How We Use Data to Inspire Design – Design x Data – Medium By Arianna McClain & Rohini Vibha When most people imagine good design, numbers probably don’t come to mind. In fact, anything quantitative might feel completely at odds with the concept of beautiful design. But at IDEO, in addition to connecting with people and learning their stories, designers use quantitative data as a tool to gain empathy and inspiration.
