Research: Lev Manovich Coins the Term 'Media Visualization' New media theorist Lev Manovich just released a new text, titled What is Visualization? []. One might first wonder if such a question is not too... obvious, but in the light of the contentious discussion about the tension between artistic and scientific representations of data, and whether data art should be called visualization at all, it is always worth covering the basics. The text is quite substantial, so you might want to wait for some quiet time to dive into it. The main arguments in the text focus around distinguishing information visualization, scientific visualization and information design. In addition, Lev proposes a new term, "media visualization", for those visual representations that do not reduce data into topology and geometry, but instead uses techniques to reorganize data into a new visual representation that preserves its original form.

Event visualization in a 3D environment Semantic event tracker (SET) is an interactive visualization tool for analyzing events (activities) in a three-dimensional environment. We model an event as an object that describes an action, its location, time, and relations to other objects. Real world event information is extracted from Internet sources, then stored and processed using Semantic Web technologies that enable us to discover semantic associations between events. » Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for Wordpress Tag Visualization (part I) Beyond Tag Clouds: TagArcs for WordPress Tag Visualization Tag clouds are very use­ful to vi­sua­lize the most fre­quently used tags on a web­site, e.g. a blog.

For me this be­came evi­dently on my own tag cloud (see left) which still ra­tes 'Lima' at the lea­ding po­si­tion whe­reas the re­la­ted ar­ti­cles are more then three years old.
