VIZBI - Visualizing Biological Data Revolutions Why Are Data-Viz Designers So Obsessed With Circles? In 1726, Filippo Juvarra put the finishing touches on the dome of the Basilica of Superga, an intricately designed church in Turin, Italy. The artist painted the interior roof of the building with a kaleidoscopic pattern that when paired with the dome’s ring of windows creates the effect of ornate, concentric circles. Nearly 300 years later, in the French town of Cessy, engineers finished building the Compact Muon Solenoid, a massive particle detector that, when viewed in cross-section, bears a striking resemblance to Juvarra’s circular basilica dome. “These things look so similar, and yet they’re separated by 300 years,” says Manuel Lima. In his new book, Lima attempts to find out. Lima began thinking about the book in 2011 after he was asked a confounding question during a presentation he was giving on Visual Complexity. From a psychological perspective, the circle represents happiness, unity, perfection, and wholeness.

Data News Hive Plots - Linear Layout for Network Visualization - Visually Interpreting Network Structure and Content Made Possible Seán O'Donoghue Visual.ly Blog Content alone does not make a great video; you need a great video design that make a visual statement combining design and data visualization to deliver a story. Designers often get a little excited and put too much fancy design to fill in the space. The best content marketing brands are the ones that know how use content to drive conversions and pushing the boundaries.

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data – tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results. In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years. So what can we expect? Let’s take a look at the most interesting modern approaches to data visualization as well as related articles, resources and tools. 1.

Cameron Hummels Cosmological Evolution A simulation following the evolution of a large representative volume of the Universe from just after the Big Bang to the present day. We're looking at the projected gas density from the side of the cube, and our view follows the reference frame of the expanding Universe over this time. As you can see, initially the Universe starts out dense and uniform, but over time slight overdensities in the gas are amplified by the attractive effects of gravity to form the walls, filaments, and clusters seen here. Also note the axes scales change over time as the Universe expands by a factor of 100 between z=100 and z=0, and observe the significant drop in the general column density over that period. Disk Galaxy This is a fly-around of an output from an Enzo hydrodynamics simulation which followed the evolution of a Milky-Way-like galaxy from just after the Big Bang to present (z=99 to z=0). Lastly, the movie changes modes to displaying the stellar component of the galaxy.
