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. Why wrangle? Too much time is spent manipulating data just to get analysis and visualization tools to read it. Wrangler is designed to accelerate this process: spend less time fighting with your data and more time learning from it. Working with Data in Protovis on Datavisualization Protovis is an open-source Javascript visualization library by the Stanford Visualization Group and has become one of the preferred tools in our arsenal. If you want to get started with the popular toolkit too, Jerome Cukier has a comprehensive tutorial about how to work with data in Protovis. The tutorial is split in five parts covering using (1, 2), sorting (3) and reshaping (4) arrays as well as how to structure data to work with complex structures like treemaps or force-directed layouts (5). For the past year or so I have been dabbling with protovis. Be aware that the content is laser focused on how to deal with data instead of shiny visualization goodness. That said, if you plan to create custom visualizations with Protovis, I highly recommend to have a look at Jerome’s notes.

Setting Data Free With Gapminder Last month Hans Rosling, the Swedish global health professor, statician and sword swallower released a desktop version of Gapminder World, his mesmerizing data visualization tool. Named one of Foreign Policy's top 100 global thinkers in 2009, the information design visionary co-founded with his son and daughter-in-law aiming to make the world's most important trends accessible and digestible to global leaders, policy makers and the general public. The software they developed, Trendalyzer, (acquired by Google in 2007) translates static numbers into dynamic, interactive bubbles moving through time. Emily Cunningham is a research intern at ReadWriteWeb and a design and user experience intern at What is Awesome Many of same things that make the Web-based version of Gapminder a great tool applies to the desktop version: Graphs are highly dynamic and yet easy to understand and create. Benefits specific to Gapminder Desktop include: What Needs Work In a word: social.

We Feel Fine / by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar New York Times - Linked Open Data WriteFlow Selected Tools Qu'est-ce que Traque Traces? | Traque traces, une fiction Traque traces est une fiction. Mais c'est votre vie (ou presque) Cette fiction est née d'un pari un peu fou : refaire une ville fictive sous la vraie ville. Faire vivre et évoluer tout un peuple, écrit à partir des données qui nous écrivent, nous aussi, êtres de chair. Car chaque jour nous sommes, nous, êtres de chair, mis en données. C'est un constat. Nous avons donc écrit un peuple. Alors, comment lire? Plusieurs possibilités s'offrent à vous : rentrer par les coulisses de cette fabrique de fictions, qui expliquent la démarche poursuivie, les consignes d'écritures données séance après séance, et la construction progressive et plus erratique qu'il n'y paraît peut-être, de ce petit peuple qui nous ressemble tant.passer directement à la traque des personnages, par les lieux qu'ils ont hantés, par les tags qui les catégorisent et qui indexent les traces qu'ils ont laissées, ou en commençant par une histoire au hasard... Bonne traque.
