How COVID-19 Has Impacted Media Consumption, by Generation View the high-resolution of the infographic by clicking here. Since March of this year, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced millions of people to physically distance themselves from others, yet many feel closer to their loved ones than ever before. When it comes to brands, consumers have forged relationships that could be just as meaningful. Présentation du data-journalisme Le data-journalisme ou journalisme de données est une nouvelle technique qui consiste à analyser des données complexes, en extraite les plus significatives et de retraiter ces informations sous formes graphiques. Principalement utilisée en rédaction web et très présente dans les pays anglophones, ce type de journalisme commence à prendre de l’essor en France, bien que les bases de données ne soient pas encore toutes forcément accessibles. On part d’un flot d’information brute, officielle, qui est vérifiée, traitée, pour aller vers la plus percutante et la raffinée possible.

El aumento de la datificación de nuestras vidas… Desde chatear con amigos en una aplicación de mensajería o comprar un café, hasta entrar y salir a casi cualquier servicio, casi todo lo que hacemos deja boronas digitales; osea, un rastro de migajas de datos. Y esta datificación creciente de nuestro actividades cotidianas nos ha llevado a una explosión de datos sin precedentes. A manera de ejemplo, solo en un minuto promedio, Facebook recibe 900,000 inicios de sesión, se generan y publican más de 450,000 Tweets, se envían 156 millones de correos electrónicos y mas de 15 millones de mensajes de texto.

Data Analytics vs. Data Visualisation: What’s The Difference? - Aventis Learning Group “Data” is hot right now and you’re probably looking at how you can arm yourself with the skills and knowledge to work with data. You’ve also probably seen these terms – “data analytics” and “data visualisation”. But, what do these terms actually mean? untitled Readers: My friend Chuck sent me this article on income inequality for my blog. I think it is an important and timely topic to discuss. Mona Chalabi (photo, right) published an article in The Guardian back in April. She was responding to a question she received via her e-mail regarding “How would someone go about checking wage gaps? How can you check for gaps across genders and across racial/ethnic groups?”

The 25 Best Data Visualizations of 2019 Making information beautiful is an art form. Here at Visme, we are huge fans of what data artists are constantly creating. From data journalism to data art and data science in between. Last year, we published a roundup of the best data visualizations of 2018 and you loved it. untitled I was toying around with the idea of multivariate beer, along the same lines as Data Cuisine. I wanted to represent county demographics with beer ingredients. The higher a value, say, population density, the more hops I use, or the higher the median household income the more of a particular grain. For contrast I brewed county ales for Aroostook, Maine (low population density), Arlington, Virginia (high median household income), Bronx, New York (high population density), and Marin, California (high education rate). Could I taste and see the difference? In short, yes.

untitled The Master of Industrial Design program explores design as a vehicle for addressing social, cultural, environmental and other concerns, recognizing that design is not simply a professional service, but rather a way of connecting individual interests and values with a social framework. Students with undergraduate degrees in other fields or with limited design experience are invited to enter the program during Wintersession as a means of preparing to begin the two-year master’s program the following fall. ID covers a broad range of fields, from product and furniture explorations to design for aerospace and medical applications. The danger of using the wrong metrics for policy making Adopted public policies affect everyone—They're called public for a reason after all. Nowhere is this truer than in the realm of defense policy. On the one hand, money spent on the military means money not spent on healthcare, education, infrastructure, or other important domestic spending priorities. On the other, underspending on defense may jeopardize the security of a nation and its people. No doubt, data plays a major role in policy formulation—that’s a good thing.

The Data Visualization Design Process: A Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners Visualizing data in charts, graphs, dashboards, and infographics is one of the most powerful strategies for getting your numbers out of your spreadsheets and into real-world conversations. But it can be overwhelming to get started with data visualization. Does data visualization leave you feeling like the numbers are about to topple over on you?? Treemaps: Data Visualization of Complex Hierarchies Treemaps are a data-visualization technique for large, hierarchical data sets. They capture two types of information in the data: (1) the value of individual data points; (2) the structure of the hierarchy. Definition: Treemaps are visualizations for hierarchical data. They are made of a series of nested rectangles of sizes proportional to the corresponding data value.

Yvonne Jansen - Embedded Data Representations People Wesley J. Willett, University of Calgary Yvonne Jansen, (then) University of Copenhagen Pierre Dragicevic, Inria Energy Statistics – European Design The Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) disposes of a big mass of information concerning the subject of energy. Until now these information has only been available in a very uninspiring form; too complicated and difficult to comprehend. Our task was to show these numbers and complexe statistics in an easy comprehensible and appealing way. Therefore we have tried to find similarities to trivial objects, or images and to stage these numbers in an striking and amusing way to the beholder, so that every one can understand it easily.

Participatory Data Physicalization: a new space to design informative experiences “Between 30% and 50% of all cancer cases are preventable. Prevention offers the most cost-effective long-term strategy for the control of cancer” (World Health Organisation). Currently, in Italy, the awareness about cancer diffusion and prevention is pretty low, despite many educational websites, printed and online campaigns.
