The Best Resources For Creating Infographics Infographics are visual representations of data design to help communicate information clearly. They are great for English Language Learners, and the rest of us, too! The information can also be either serious or humorous. To see examples of some of the best ones, you can visit: Download Choose your operating system: TheBrain 8 for Mac OS X Mac OS 10.7+1 GHz Intel Processor, 1GB RAM, 100 MB available storage TheBrain 8 for Linux jQuery Plugin/Widget Timeglider JS is a zooming, panning data-driven timeline widget written in Javascript. This widget is the core of our our timeline authoring and publishing app, and can be integrated into any HTML application environment. Timelines can be zoomed by dragging the vertical slider at right: up for zooming in (less time shown) and down for zooming out (more time shown). The mousewheel also works as a zoom controller.

50 Great Examples of Data Visualization Wrapping your brain around data online can be challenging, especially when dealing with huge volumes of information. And trying to find related content can also be difficult, depending on what data you’re looking for. But data visualizations can make all of that much easier, allowing you to see the concepts that you’re learning about in a more interesting, and often more useful manner. Below are 50 of the best data visualizations and tools for creating your own visualizations out there, covering everything from Digg activity to network connectivity to what’s currently happening on Twitter. Music, Movies and Other Media Narratives 2.0 visualizes music.

Chart and image gallery: 30+ free tools for data visualization and analysis November 7, 2013 03:21 PM ET The chart below originally accompanied our story 22 free tools for data visualization and analysis (April 20, 2011). We're updating it as we cover additional tools, including 8 cool tools for data analysis, visualization and presentation (March 27, 2012) and Six useful JavaScript libraries for maps, charts and other data visualizations (March 6, 2013).

Industry Leaderboard The industries The 55 industries surveyed in the Bloomberg Industries Leaderboard were chosen on the basis of size, investor interest, and coverage by Bloomberg Industries (BI). Industry revenue Revenue (size) is derived by aggregating public company annual revenues generated from an industry and available as of Aug. 30. Revenues were estimated by BI for the following: Coal Mining-Global, Electrical Equipment- Global, Express & Courier Services-Global, Investment Banking- Global, Life Insurance-Global, Property & Casualty-Global, Pharma-Global, Rail Freight Transportation-North America, Renewable Energy-Global, Steel Producers- Global, Utilities- Europe. Revenues for Life Insurance, Property & Casualty Insurance, and Managed Care are based on premium revenue.

5 Unbeatable Types of Infographic + Free Tools to Create Them An infographic (information graphic) has been a very effective way to bait for links and social media votes for ages. Like anything else, it can be done right or wrong (I am sure you have seen dozens of poorly implemented infographics by now and maybe a few really good ones). How to create a good one? The secret is in days (maybe months) of brainstorming. A cool concept doesn’t even have to be too very well-designed. All you need is a great idea and some time of putting it together.

2 Easy Ways To Create An Impressive Timeline For Free If you want a quick and easy way to create a timeline, there are many free online services that make it a snap. Tiki-Toki and Dipity are just two of the many options out there, but their varied features and impressive looking timelines make them a great choice for someone who is looking for a free, easy-to-use service. Whether you want to create a timeline with details down to the minute, or you’re looking to create a timeline spanning centuries, between these two services, you can include your own media, pull in data from social media sites like Flickr and Twitter, and of course manually enter your own data. Tiki-Toki Setting aside the fact that free accounts on Tiki-Toki do have their limitations, and the fact that the name of the service is bizarre, the easy to use interface, and professional looking final result makes Tiki-Toki a great choice for creating a timeline. After signing up for a free account, you can create one timeline.

Physics Simulations and Artwork Here is a 3D view of a hydrogren atom in the 4f state. The left image was made in C++ using a technique described by Krzysztof Marczak to make it volumetric like a cloud of smoke. The right image was made in Mathematica by adding 2D cross-sectional layers. The animations were made in POV-Ray using DF3 density files. The right animation shows what a "12o" orbital might look like. POV-Ray has a built-in internal function for the 3d orbital: // runtime: 4 seconds camera{location 16*z look_at 0} #declare P=function{internal(53)}; #declare P0=P(0,3,0,0); box{-8,8 pigment{rgbt t} hollow interior{media{emission 0.5 density{function{(P(x,y,z,0)-1.2)/(P0-1.2)} color_map{[0 rgb 0][1 rgb 1]}}}}} Links Atomic Orbital - time-dependant hydrogen atom simulation, by ?
