(…) El alejamiento minimiza las opciones de configuración (encuadre, punto de vista, etc.) al desvalorizar el eventual repertorio de decisiones adoptado por el operador; y, por otra parte, el alejamiento asegura una imagen más plana en la que el fotógrafo no se siente obligado a destacar nada.

FlowingData | Data Visualization, Infographics, and Statistics Latest As I mentioned in my previous post, our collaboration with the Sabeti Lab is aimed at creating new visual exploration tools to help researchers, doctors, and clinicians discover patterns and associations in large health and epidemiological datasets. These tools will be the first step in a hypothesis-generation process, combining intuition from expert users with visualization techniques and automated algorithms, allowing users to quickly test hypothesis that are “suggested” by the data itself. Researchers and doctors have a deep familiarity with their data and often can tell immediately when a new pattern is potentially interesting or simply the result of noise. Visualization techniques will help articulate their knowledge to a wider audience. In the last post, I went into some detail about the difficulties that arise when representing pairwise associations in a dataset that contains a mixture of numerical and categorical variables. -log 1/1000 = log 1000 = 6.9 -log 1/2 = log 2 = 0.69
