The top 20 data visualisation tools One of the most common questions I get asked is how to get started with data visualisations. Beyond following blogs, you need to practise – and to practise, you need to understand the tools available. In this article, I want to introduce you to 20 different tools for creating visualisations: from simple charts to complex graphs, maps and infographics. Almost everything here is available for free, and some you have probably installed already. Entry-level tools At the entry level, we'll be looking at unexpected uses for familiar tools.
Data visualisation DIY: our top tools What data visualisation tools are out there on the web that are easy to use - and free? Here on the Datablog and Datastore we try to do as much as possible using the internet's powerful free options. That may sound a little disingenuous, in that we obviously have access to the Guardian's amazing Graphics and interactive teams for those pieces where we have a little more time - such as this map of public spending (created using Adobe Illustrator) or this Twitter riots interactive. Vertex (graph theory) A graph with 6 vertices and 7 edges where the vertex number 6 on the far-left is a leaf vertex or a pendant vertex From the point of view of graph theory, vertices are treated as featureless and indivisible objects, although they may have additional structure depending on the application from which the graph arises; for instance, a semantic network is a graph in which the vertices represent concepts or classes of objects.

LACT PART 2: Quantifying Complexity Part one of this article discussed facade design and environmental analysis. In the second half, we focus on system rationalization and conceptual cost estimating. A more detailed description of real-time scheduling, tagging, and rationalization using Grasshopper for Rhino is also covered. As mentioned in part one, the design-build competition format presented us with a unique challenge. While design-build is often described as a partnership between an integrated design and construction team, the reality is that builders remain the principle contract holders while architects serve as their design consultants.

A New Way of Visualizing Solar Radiation Last fall a custom data visualization developed by our research team was featured on the information is beautiful website as part of their information is beautiful awards. In this post we discuss why we developed the graphic and how it is used. Incident Solar Radiation is one of the most common types of analysis performed by architects at the conceptual design stage.
Siruca Pictograms™, the first Open Source project of Fabrizio Schiavi I’d love to design a lot of new picts for my Siruca Pictograms™ but I can’t find the time, so I asked collaboration to some others icon designers. You can participate to the grow of this project if you like. I’ll publish it just below the text in this page with your name and a link to your site. Don’t worry if you don’t know any font editor, you can send me a Freehand, Illustrator or any vectorial file with your design and I’ll fix it. Siruca Pictograms™ is designed to works with Siruca™ font.
