The Data Visualization Catalogue | Visual.ly Blog

The Data Visualization Catalogue | Visual.ly Blog | Infographics in the Classroom (Sue Hellman & Kelly Grogan) | Scoop.it
If you’ve ever struggled with what visualization to create to best show the data you have, The Data Visualization Catalogue might provide just the help you need. Severino Ribecca has begun the process of categorizing data visualizations based on what relationships and properties of data that they show. With 54 visualizations currently slated to be categorized, the catalog aims to be a comprehensive list of visualizations, searchable by what you want to show. The site has the potential to be a great resource for those looking to find the most efficient way to display their data, or a new angle to find different patterns or insights. Tableau has a similar tool (Show Me) embedded into their software, but a free tool that lets the user specify the data properties and get a list of options is a welcome development. We hope the tool continues to develop and has more visualization... keep reading

Weave: Web-based Analysis and Visualization Environment from U Mass. | Infographics in the Classroom (Sue Hellman & Kelly Grogan) | Scoop.it

Weave is a new web-based visualization platform designed to enable visualization of any available data by anyone for any purpose. Weave is an application development platform supporting multiple levels of users – novice to advanced – as well as the ability to integrate, analyze and visualize data at “nested” levels of geography, and to disseminate the results in a web page.

 

Our goals are to especially enable non-profits and other small groups to use Weave to share and disseminate data, visualizations, and stories on their web pages, in grant writing, and most importantly to help them effect social change.

Sue Hellman's resources6's insight:

Great ideas for using icons and shapes -- just resize the icon but think about the data it represents & how you'll make the scale meaningful. Does keeping the same proportions scaling up by 2x or 3x work for all shapes? for quadrilaterals? for circles? for 3D solids as shown above? 

Is eyeballing good enough? Will there be someone in the audience who actually does some measuring to see if the math is right?
