In the framework of our researches, we are focusing on twitter visualization. This social platform indeed offers several opportunities for data visualization: social ties analysis, links between geography and themes/languages, real-time visualization of a particular topic (like a conference), or again to analyse a past topic and its “storyfication”.
We spent last week recognizing recent developments related to the topic, identifying three main fields:
Real-time visualizations: visualizing twitter stream in realtime during conferences or big events.Visual search: online tools that create a dynamic visual output for a twitter search.Storytelling: the use of visualization to tell an event in the past. There are both interactive and static examples.
We’d like to share with you a selection of these examples. Selected artworks have been created in the last three years.
