Vintage data visualization: 35 examples from before the Digital Era This is a guest post by Tiago Veloso, the founder of Visual Loop, a collaborative digital environment for everything related to information design and data visualization. He lives in Brazil, and you can connect with him online on Twitter and LinkedIn. If you follow us regularly on Visual Loop, you’ve probably noticed we like to featured not only modern interactive visualizations and infographics, but also examples from the past, from the time when there were no computer softwares to help analyzing and designing and no Internet to access and share data. Graphics, charts, diagrams and visual data representations have been published on books, newspapers and magazines since they exist, not to mention old maps and scientific illustrations, and despite the lack of tools such as the ones we have at our disposal nowadays, they are as inspiring and important as the best contemporary visualizations.

People of the Rainbow Gathering Ever hear about Rainbow Gatherings? They're temporary community events typically held in outdoor settings; a place where people practice ideals like peace, love and harmony. The original Rainbow Gathering was in 1972 and was started as an alternative to mainstream popular culture. After going to Rainbow Gatherings for several years, self-taught Canadian photographer and art director Benoit Paillé got permission to take portraits of his "brothers and sisters." "The pictures you see are very precious since photography is not usually allowed during the event," he says. Over the last three years, Paillé captured these moments at Rainbow Gatherings across Spain, Canada, and Mexico. Benoit Paillé on: Flickr, deviantART, Behance
43 Intricate Mind Map Illustrations For the uninitiated, a mind map is a graphical organization of ideas and concepts that can be used to facilitate the generation of ideas and the learning process. The reason why this has been argued to be more effective than the traditional method of learning (e.g. rote learning, linear text reading, etc) is because such structuring of ideas and concepts resembles the way our brain works – i.e. via links or associations. Mind mapping is done by connecting one idea to another with the aid of colors and images to tap both sides of our brains. When that happens, creativity gets a boost without compromising our sense of logic. If you’re thinking of how you can start adsopting mind mapping in your learning or brainstorming needs, check out these 43 great examples of how mind maps can be made. Course Structure.

WikIT Graphical visualization of text similarities in essays in a book | munterbund.de The problem A collection of essays is collated for readers with visualizing graphics. The graphics should both serve as a thematic and structural overview of each text, and pose the essay in question in relation to the other essays in the book. They should be both an abbreviation of the text and the key to decoding the complex issues under discussion. The difficulty in developing appropriate graphics arises from the level of discussion of the key themes. The basis of visualization Detail view of graphic for Raphael Perret A data graphic – like a bar chart – depicts quantifiable data. Different ways of data selection A significant constraint in developing appropriate graphics arises from the manner of data collection. It is possible to divide data extracted from essays into two main groups: data that must be collected ”manually” (in our case, using human intelligence), and data that can be captured automatically by machine intelligence.

Nicholas Felton | Feltron.com Rebuilding Ancient Egyptian Temples in 3D The reconstructions, in this section, give an idea of how these ancient temples might have appeared to ancient eyes. Ancient peoples liked to decorate their buildings and temples with bright colours. Take the Parthenon, in Athens, for example; nowadays we have this vision of those beautiful columns and fabulously carved marbles showing the bare stone, which appeals to our modern aesthetic. However, in ancient times the bare stone was hidden from view because it was all painted in the most brilliant colours. Rebuilding Ancient Egyptian Temples in 3D The mystery of Egyptian cult temples explained, illustrated with videos, photos, drawings and 30 highly detailed computer generated reconstructions.

Earnings and Unemployment by College Major | Ideas Illustrated The Wall Street Journal recently published a table of income and unemployment data that presented pay and employment rates for various college majors. The original study by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce contained enough additional details that I thought it might be worth trying to incorporate the information into a Tableau visualization. After a little data massaging, I created charts for both the high-level fields of study and the more detailed individual majors. Each level contains unemployment rates, income levels, and popularity of major measured by number of enrollees. One of the first things you notice is that, despite frequent claims to the contrary, college graduates with a degree in Education have the lowest median earnings overall. Graduates with an Engineering degree have the highest median earnings overall and a relatively low unemployment rate compared to other disciplines.
