The above examples describe a wide range of geographical and geotemporal storytelling models, often based around quite simple data files containing information about individual events. Many of the tools make a strong use of image files as pat of the display. it may be interesting to complete a more detailed review that describes the exact data models used by each of the techniques, with a view to identifying a generic data model that could be used by each of the different models, or transformed into the distinct data representations supported by each of the separate tools.

Alluvial diagrams are a type of flow diagram that  have traditionally been used to visually show changes in network structures over time. Density Design has included Alluvial Diagrams in their RAW online visualization tool and explored its use to show “relations between dimensions of categorical data.”

 

RAW is such a wonderfully easy tool to use that I wanted to explore the Alluvial diagram functionality with a few different data sets to see how the visualizations would come out.

What is ‘open development’?


Open Development sits at the intersection of the ‘open’ movement, and international development. This could take the form of looking at how open data can affect decisions made within international development; open access to research materials; or opening up the ways we work, for example by being more inclusive, to name just a few examples. If you want to find out more about open development, join the Open Development mailing list, where a wide range of topics within Open Development are discussed. It’s open to everyone to join!

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools

How to Turn Infographics Into Effective Teaching Tools | dataInnovation | Scoop.it

Infographics have already established themselves as engaging news and marketing tools, but they are also entering the education space in new and exciting ways.

A good graphic can fit these standards by reinforcing to students that their conclusions should be grounded in evidence and by challenging their ability to organize a hierarchy of systems, a.k.a. the ability to tell what pieces of information are the most important.

Fàtima Galan's insight:

"The goal of the system is to help students distill the most important pieces of information from any given text and form a conclusion."

Infographics is a very interesting way of presenting information. Students can really learn to dig deep into specific information and facts and create infographics to show what they have learned. GREAT!!!!!
