List of Physical Visualizations

Recent additions: While data sculptures date back from the 1990s, the very first sculptures were Venus figurines: A Venus figurine is any Upper Paleolithic statuette portraying a woman with exaggerated physical features. The oldest ones are about 35,000 years old. Right image: modern versions. Also see V.S. The earliest data visualizations were likely physical: built by arranging stones or pebbles, and later, clay tokens. Quipus were complex assemblies of knotted ropes that were used in South America as a data storage device and played an important role in the Inca administration.

An orrery is a mechanical model of the solar system. A seismoscope is a qualitative indicator of seismic activity — as opposed to seismographs which show quantitative data, typically through line graphs. The first terrain/city models date back from the 16th century and were created for military purposes. Mobile Infovis and Dataviz Pattern. MobileVis. Vis4me - Personal data visualisation.

News Graphics Collection. Junk Charts. Via Twitter, Bart S (@BartSchuijt) sent me to this TechCrunch article, which contains several uninspiring charts.

Junk Charts

The most disturbing one is this: There is a classic Tufte class here: only five numbers and yet the chart is so confusing. And yes, they reversed the axis. Lower means higher "app abandonment" and higher means lower "app abandonment". The co-existence of the data labels, gridlines, and axis labels increases processing time without adding information. A simple column chart shows there is almost nothing going on: I suspect that if they were to break the data down by months and weeks, it would be clear that the fluctuations are meaningless. The graphical scaffolding, or what Tufte calls the non-data ink, should provide context to help readers understand the data.

Worse, the context needed to interpret "app abandonment" is sorely missing. You might argue with me. That definition is an emperor with no clothes. It seems possible that they are counting user-app pairs. Information aesthetics - Data Visualization & Information Design. Visualizing the city built of data.
