How to Use Sigma.js with Neo4j I’ve done a few posts recently using D3.js and now I want to show you how to use two other great Javascript libraries to visualize your graphs. We’ll start with Sigma.js and soon I’ll do another post with Three.js. We’re going to create our graph and group our nodes into five clusters. Part 1: The essential collection of visualisation resources This is the first part of a multi-part series designed to share with readers an inspiring collection of the most important, effective, useful and practical data visualisation resources. The series will cover visualisation tools, resources for sourcing and handling data, online learning tutorials, visualisation blogs, visualisation books and academic papers. Your feedback is most welcome to help capture any additions or revisions so that this collection can live up to its claim as the essential list of resources. This first part presents the data visualisation tools associated with conducting analysis, creating effective graphs and implementing business intelligence operations. Please note, I may not have personally used all tools presented but have seen sufficient evidence of their value from other sources.

Using Sigma.js with Neo4j I’ve done a few posts recently using D3.js and now I want to show you how to use two other great Javascript libraries to visualize your graphs. We’ll start with Sigma.js and soon I’ll do another post with Three.js. We’re going to create our graph and group our nodes into five clusters. You’ll notice later on that we’re going to give our clustered nodes colors using rgb values so we’ll be able to see them move around until they find their right place in our layout. We’ll be using two Sigma.js plugins, the GEFX (Graph Exchange XML Format) parser and the ForceAtlas2 layout. Map your moves Data This map distills more than 4000 moves from over 1700 people, collected in an informal survey by WNYC, a New York based public radio station. For generating the geo–coordinates from the entered ZIP codes, I used the free bulk geocoder at I did not check every single data row in detail, so a few of the moves might be misrepresented.

Big Data means Advanced Data Visualization The last few years have been particularly exciting for data visualizations. We’ve witnessed a boom in the popularity of infographics and in tools to help create everyday visualizations for practical purposes. With all these exciting developments it’s difficult not to wonder what the future of this field will look like. Industry-renowned data visualization expert, Edward Tufte once said “The world is complex, dynamic, multidimensional; the paper is static, flat. The top 20 data visualisation tools It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams.

ForceAtlas2, the new version of our home-brew Layout The new version of the build-in layout ForceAtlas is now released. It is scaled for small to medium-size graphs, and is adapted to qualitative interpretation of graphs. The equations are the same as ForceAtlas 1, but there are more options and innovative optimizations that make it a very fast layout algorithm. It is good enough to deal with very small graphs (10 nodes) and fast enough to spatialize 10,000 nodes graphs in few minutes, with the same quality.

Public/Private Public/Private is a game that explores the topic of privacy in our cities by focusing on where we find it. By choosing where in your city you seek privacy most often, you produce a visual graph representing those choices. Your graph is then combined with graphs generated by the rest of the global audience, creating a live data-visualization that illustrates how our experience of privacy changes at a local and global level. As more participants play Public/Private, more of the complexities of privacy in urban settings are illuminated. This game was created to accompany two ongoing research projects undertaken by the BMW Guggenheim Lab in Mumbai in cooperation with Partners for Urban Knowledge, Action & Research (PUKAR) and the Design Cell at the Kamla Raheja Vidyanidhi Institute for Architecture and Environmental Studies (KRVIA).

Texas drought maps and photos Various plans for dealing with future droughts and growing demand for water in Texas exist, but most comprehensive — and accepted — is the state Water Plan. It offers a frank assessment of the current landscape, saying Texas “does not and will not have enough water to meet the needs of its people, its businesses, and its agricultural enterprises.” It predicts that “if a drought affected the entire state like it did in the 1950s,” Texas could lose around $116 billion, over a million jobs, and the growing state's population could actually shrink by 1.4 million people. The water plan also offers a range of solutions for dealing with the problem, focusing mainly on conservation and efficiency, but also on building new reservoirs, tapping additional sources of water underground and treating effluent water. The biggest question, however is where the money will come from to pay for it. It has a price tag of $52 billion, or roughly $2,000 per Texan, through 2060.

Audio Room I can't get data from your microphone. Have you enabled Web Audio Input in Credit where it's due: the look and feel of this demo is heavily inspired by the talented Robert Hodgin's EYEO demos. Go and look, they are so nice! Visualize this: Is it information or is it art? By John Grimwade An old infographic chestnut. It’s always been a tricky balance between getting the story across, and making a great image.

70 Tools And 4 Reasons To Make Your Own Infographics Infographics are everywhere. Some love them. Some hate them. But however you feel, it’s fun to learn a little bit in a short period of time. Most are made so you can quickly grasp the key concepts behind them. That’s a key thing to keep in mind if you want to make your own infographics. Wind Map An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software.
