IBM Advanced visualization Democratizing visualization Advanced visualization from IBM can help you gain insight from the myriad of data that your company generates. You can understand much more about the underlying numbers in your data when you can see them. For your visualization to be effective, you need technology that simplifies the visualization creation process and guidance from visualization specialists who can show you the best format for presenting your data. IBM Many Eyes, a web community that connects visualization experts, practitioners, academics and enthusiasts, offers this technology and expertise, along with ways to share and learn from others. The appeal of the Many Eyes website is that it democratizes visualization. Upload your public data set. Who is using Many Eyes and how All kinds of people use the community at the Many Eyes website to demonstrate research, make a point, understand trends and patterns or illustrate a theory.

Statistics NZ Stat Maps Explore and visualise statistics about New Zealand and its people in map form. Visit often, as we plan to release more statistical maps that visualise changes in our society, economy, and environment. Check out our maps in one of these categories: Statistics NZ data service prototype - The Statistics NZ data service prototype provides an easy-to-use platform to search, browse, and download the 2016 geographic boundaries. It also provides a selection of 2013 Census spatial data. Key features of StatsMaps: They are accessible via desktop, tablets, and smartphones. 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)! Protovis is no longer under active development.The final release of Protovis was v3.3.1 (4.7 MB). This project was led by Mike Bostock and Jeff Heer of the Stanford Visualization Group, with significant help from Vadim Ogievetsky. Updates June 28, 2011 - Protovis is no longer under active development. September 17, 2010 - Release 3.3 is available on GitHub. May 28, 2010 - ZOMG! October 1, 2009 - Release 3.1 is available, including minor bug fixes. April 9, 2009 - First release on Google Code. Getting Started

Participation in physical activity Most recent dataThe graphs below are interactive. Hover over data points to see exact values. Click legend text to hide or show variables.Figure 1See information about this data.Figure 2 Information about the dataFigures 1 and 2 Date published: December 2014 Next update expected: December 2015 Update frequency: Annually Specific classification used: ‘Physically active’, as calculated from answers to the New Zealand Physical Activity Questionnaire Short Form questions. Physical activity is calculated as: time respondents spent brisk walking + time spent doing moderate-intensity activity + (2x time spent doing vigorous activity). So, one minute of vigorous activity equals two minutes of moderate-intensity activity. A person is considered ‘physically active’ if they did at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity (or equivalent) physical activity a day on five or more days of the last week.

Nicholas Felton Will Teach You Data Viz In A Free Online Class Nicholas Felton, the information designer behind Facebook’s Timeline and the annual Feltron Report, has just uploaded a free course on Skillshare that will introduce you to the art and techniques of data visualization. Over the course of 16 short videos (none is longer than nine minutes, and most are just a few minutes), Felton teaches you how to render meteor strikes on a map. You’ll learn to deal with the data-shaping app Processing, juggle scalable vector graphics, parse a major data set, link that information to markers, and even pick up a few pointers about typography while you’re at it. Given than few universities even have a curriculum to teach on data viz, Felton's free course is a must-attend for anyone interested in this burgeoning field. Try it here.

Map a GPS data file with Google Earth (KML) This form will import your GPS data file (e.g., GPX), or plain-text data (tab-delimited or CSV), and create a KML file that you can view in the Google Earth application or import into Google's "My Maps"/"My Places" system. (To create GPX files, use the conversion utility. You might also be interested in the Google Maps input form, which creates interactive HTML maps, or the JPEG/PNG/SVG form, which creates simple raster or vector graphics. To resize and/or colorize Google Earth markers based on a particular field, use the data form.)
