Mapping murder throughout the world Comparing murder rates of countries can really highlight the countries with problems - the ones in seriously need attention. A high murder rate gives a "tip off" that something needs to change. The UNODC have collected together all the national data on homicide for 207 countries. But of course nothing is ever simple when bringing together national statistics. 15 data visualisation tools to help you present ideas effectively The number of digital skills you need in order to be a functional and useful member of your organisation are increasing at a rate you might be struggling to keep up with.

Journey Map JourneyMap is a JavaScript library for the Leaflet.js mapping platform. The library can help you create a story map where interactions on the map are triggered as the user scrolls down the page. This demonstration map shows you some of the interactions you can create with the library. The demo shows how you can add a marker to the map, move the map to a different location and zoom in and out on the map. GeoFlow Takes Data for a 3-D Drive In November, during the SharePoint Conference 2012, attendees received a Public Preview of project codename “GeoFlow” for Excel, the latest business-intelligence (BI) functionality to be integrated with Microsoft Excel 2013 later this year. As an Excel add-in, GeoFlow provides interactive, 3-D geospatial and temporal data visualizations. It enables information workers to discover and share new insights from data through rich, 3-D data on a globe and fluid, cinematic guided tours—virtual cinematography moving through data. With dynamic data exploration that turns rows and columns of spatiotemporal data into rich 3-D maps, the term “add-in” really doesn’t do justice to the technology behind GeoFlow, a preview of which is available for download.

What I Learned Recreating One Chart Using 24 Tools Back in May of this year, I set myself a challenge: I wanted to try as many applications and libraries and programming languages in the field of data visualization as possible. To compare these tools on a level playing field, I recreated the same scatterplot (also called a bubble chart) with all of them. Based on the results, I published two listicles: One for data vis applications and one for data vis libraries and programming languages. An overview of all the tools I tried can be found in this Google Spreadsheet. Now I’ll take a higher-level view and compare these tools with each other; mapping out my learnings. Full disclosure: My experiment was highly influenced by the tools I already knew before I started trying new ones.

Protovis Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)!

Hit On Head By Falling Baby - Twice! Hit On Head By Falling Baby - Twice! There once was a man hit on the head by a fallingbaby, twice! According to Time Magazine, the first event occurred in 1937. Joseph Figlock, a local street sweeper in Detroit, Michigan, was walking down the road when a baby fell from a 4th story window. The baby landed on Joseph's head and shoulders. Using IFTTT and Google Drive to create a JSON API by Nick Moreton on CodePen JSON APIs are a pretty powerful way of connecting your frontend app to a dataset through Javascript. Most of the big web apps provide their API in JSON format (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) however, as you may know if you've ever tried to use these, they often require an OAuth login in order to access the API. This obviously isn't ideal if you don't want your users to have to log in to their Twitter/Facebook/Instagram account every time they view your app or website! Well, I've found a little bit of a workaround that may get you working with data in your front end without having to worry about stuff like OAuth. A few months back I needed to deliver a Designing With Data class and began experimenting with JQuery and JSON APIs. During that time I stumbled across this post about how to use a Google Spreadsheet as a live JSON.

Using Netvizz & Gephi to Analyze a Facebook Network This post was originally featured on published on May 6th, 2010. Since the website will be relaunched and the post removed, I have relocated the tutorial to my personal page so that the Gephi community can continue to benefit from it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a graph must be worth a thousand spreadsheet rows, right? A Facebook network rendered in Gephi Okay, maybe not, but for practitioners and researchers alike, data visualization can reveal insights that aren’t always obvious from looking at the raw data, no matter how well organized it may be. 20 Good Map Creation Tools for Students A couple of years ago I published a list of 21 online map creation tools. Since then some of those tools have gone offline and new tools have replaced them. Here's my updated list of online map creation tools for students and teachers.
