Growing Datadata visualization research project 2009 Growing Data is a research project that examines how real processes and structures can be used to create an alternative form of data visualization to traditional statistical diagrams.
The images shown here are renderings of the metanetwork for the San Francisco Bay food web. The network consists of 163 nodes, each node being a guild. In total, they represent approximately 1,600 species of invertebrates and fish, as well as four nodes representing various types of autotrophic producers. There are 5,024 links or trophic interactions between the guilds. The dataset currently excludes birds and marine mammals.
