Turning lots of 0s and 1s into meaningful representation if key here.  Data becomes information and infromation needs to find you rather than you looking for it.  As long as it is relevent of course.

Lockheed Martin is a security and aerospace company engaged in research for system design, development, manufacture and integration. The first large-scale big data visualization implemented from their Vizrt collaboration is MED-E, a dashboard specializing in Energy, designed to graphically illustrate layers of high-volume information about the status of energy resources, distribution and supply. For example, WindOptimizer is a MED-E suite of cloud-based services distributing real-time sensor data, including weather forecast prediction and wind energy supplies, so that wind farms, power companies and other energy companies can manage wind resources more cost-efficiently.  

 

Vizrt R&D teams in Europe and designers and support in the United States worked with Lockheed Martin to design a system that produces data visualization to a high standard but at the same time remains flexible in its application so that several different industries can use the product, customising it for their specific purposes.  

For Vizrt, developing the MED-E platform meant pushing Viz Artist and Viz Engine as a live data harvester and interactive visualization platform. Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt’s CTO in Bergen, Norway said, “For MED-E, we’re taking multiple silos of data sources and coalescing them into one, scalable, big picture visualization representing all these different data layers. We are also doing this live when live data is available.”

How P&G Presents Data to Decision-Makers

How P&G Presents Data to Decision-Makers | Big Data Analysis in the Clouds | Scoop.it

Working with visual analytics software vendor Tibco Spotfire, P&G has put visual displays of key information on desktops — over 50,000 P&G employees now have access to a "Decision Cockpit".
In addition to the desktop displays, P&G has built meeting spaces that it calls "Business Spheres" in over 50 locations where management information is displayed for review and decision-making by groups. Some of these rooms, like the one at P&G's Cincinnati headquarters shown below, actually are spherical in shape, though most are conventional rectangular meeting rooms freshly outfitted with large screens on the walls.

At the end of 2012, comScore estimated there were 52.4 million tablet owners in the U.S.; Applesold another 19.5 million iPads in the first three months of 2013 alone. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some companies, such as Roambi, Tableau, and Bloomberg are starting to offer mobile, touch-aware data visualization apps.

 

But dropping your desktop user interface onto a tablet doesn’t really take the best advantage of all of those touches and gestures now, does it?

 

................................................

 

here are plenty of open design questions to work out for touchable data visualization: How to make intuitive gestures that are easy to discover and remember, whether touch may have advantages in data storytelling interfaces, and how to blend gestures into more traditional UI designs, among others. And deep research questions are also waiting to be resolved. Petra Isenberg, a researcher at INRIA in France, published a paper on data visualization on interactive surfaces that stipulates some key questions: “[We] don’t fully understand how touching virtual data affects comprehension or memorability of information,” she writes.

So whether you’re a practitioner or a researcher, there is a lot to work on here. Not only will tablet usage continue to grow, but other opportunities for museum installations, kiosks, and large-format presentation systems offer plenty of use-contexts to explore data visualization that takes advantage of the full interaction bandwidth afforded by these new displays and devices
