Dataveyes est une start-up de visualisations interactives de données. Plus concrètement, la start-up accompagne toutes entreprises ayant des données pour les rendre exploitables au travers de visualisations simples et efficaces. Ils interviennent ainsi sur des problématiques de brand content avec les marques (où ils mettent en scène les données grâce au storytelling), de transparence (où ils repackagent des données internes lorsqu’il y a une nécessité de les communiquer au public de manière intelligible), ou sur des besoins métiers ultra-ciblés où la start-up va concevoir de petites applications légères qui va prendre les données en input et les restituer en output de manière visuelle et intelligible.

Le Pariteur Journalism++ DC Kids Count Data Tools | DC Action for Children We measured the presence of six assets: high levels of homeownership, low levels of violent crime, high levels of youth (age 16-24) employment and the presence of recreation centers, libraries and grocery stores. (Not all of these are mapped here.) Nearly every neighborhood cluster had at least one asset. High-asset neighborhoods are in every quadrant of the city. Neighborhoods with the highest concentrations of assets (all six asset indicators) are in the Northwest quadrant of the city. Notably, two neighborhoods clusters have none of the institutional assets (libraries, grocery stores and recreation center) in the analysis. Government spending by department, 2011-12: get the data | UK news It is a lot of money, but what does £694.89bn really buy you in 2012? Guardian Data's annual audit of UK government spending this year shows huge cuts taking place across supposedly protected areas of government as the austerity programme hits home. Public spending in 2011-12 was £694.89bn - compared to £689.63bn in 2010-11. However, that £10.8bn cut masks big drops in spending in over 40 government departments and quangos, including 'protected' areas such as health and education. Thanks to Guardian graphic artist Jenny Ridley, we can see how that spending fits together - and how anything less than a billion is really not that much in government terms - particularly compared to a budget deficit of £121.4bn for 2011-12. Explore the graphic The data - for the financial year 2011-12 - is the first time this year's information has been collected in a single place. Each year every government department publishes an annual report which includes detailed breakdowns of spending. The Losers

[Datavisualisation] The Art market for Dummies The Art market represents 43 billion euros in 2012 : the equivalent of Lituania's GDP, and more than the music or the cinema market. THE SCREAM - EDVARD MUNCH. The art market is monopolized by billionaires from different parts of the world : France, United States, China or Middle East. Art is not experiencing a market failure. The global value of the Art market has doubled in ten years. The Art market compared to other cultural sectors The surface of each square rrepresents the global market revenue for each sector (in euros).
