ImagePlot visualization software: explore patterns in large image collections

ImagePlot visualization software: explore patterns in large image collections
What is ImagePlot? ImagePlot is a free software tool that visualizes collections of images and video of any size. It is implemented as a macro which works with the open source image processing program ImageJ. ImagePlot was developed by the Software Studies Initiative with support from the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH), the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts (CRCA). See your whole image collection in a single visualization. Existing visualization tools show data as points, lines, and bars. Better understand media collections and make new discoveries. Visualize image collections as timelines and scatter plots which display all images in a collection. Visualize change. We include macros which automatically measure various visual properties of every image in collection (or every frame in a video). Visualize image collections of any size. From a few dozens to millions of images.

» Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for Wordpress Tag Visualization (part I) Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for WordPress Tag Visualization Tag clouds are very use­ful to vi­sua­lize the most fre­quently used tags on a web­site, e.g. a blog.

How Data Visualization Can Perpetuate Inequality Sometimes, whether we know it or not, the choices we make when we visualize data can reinforce and even perpetuate racial disparity and it’s time that we talk about it. The lull of the computer monitor and the belief we are just working with numbers can make us lose sight of the fact that there are people behind this data who have given of themselves, sometimes unwillingly, and that we have a responsibility to them when we visualize. There’s a lot to say on this topic (maybe because it hasn’t been discussed out in the open very much). But I’m going to start here with an example from my colleague, Vidhya Shanker (she’s Director of Research, Innovation & Program Evaluation at Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis), and share other examples in future blog posts.

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.

21 Map Creation Tools for Students and Teachers Yesterday, I published a review of MapFab which is a fabulous, free, and simple tool for creating maps online. Writing that post got me thinking about all of the other free map creation tools that I've reviewed over the years. Google Maps and Google Earth are my favorite tools for creating maps, but not every school allows teachers and students to download it. 38 Tools For Beautiful Data Visualisations As we enter the Big Data era, it becomes more important to properly expand our capacity to process information for analysis and communication purposes. In a business context, this is evident as good visualisation techniques can support statistical treatment of data, or even become an analysis technique. But also, can be used as a communication tool to report insights that inform decisions.

Parsing complex social study data NPR’s #15girls project looks at the lives of 15 year old girls around the world. The reporting team was interested in using data from the World Values Survey (WVS) to help inform the reporting and produce a “by-the-numbers” piece. Analyzing the World Values Survey data represents a fairly typical problem in data journalism: crunching numbers from social science surveys. Social science surveys have some typical features: The data is in proprietary/non-standard formats like those used by Stata or SPSS. The WVS, happily, distributes comma separated value (CSV) files as well as SPSS and Stata files.

mkweb.bcgsc.ca/schemaball/?home Schemaball is a flexible schema visualizer for SQL databases. The purpose of Schemaball is to help visualize the relationships between tables.
