What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | DataViz | Scoop.it

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.

 

Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.

 

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.


Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

How the world trades with Africa

How the world trades with Africa | DataViz | Scoop.it

Methodology

This visualization shows the aggregate amounts of trade between the world's countries and Africa in the year 2012. The import flows are based on the data reported by the destination countries. For the export flows the data reported by the flows' origin countries are represented. Imports are reported by countries as CIF, and hence, have an added amount for freight, insurance etc, while exports are reported asFOB. Therefore, the amounts for import and export should not be directly compared.The commodities are grouped hierarchically according to the SITC classification.

VOYAGES: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database | DataViz | Scoop.it
Patrice Mitrano's insight:

Très riche base de données accompagnée de cartes, frises chronologiques et autres photos ou plans sur la traite des esclaves (entre 1525 et 1867) compilée par la Emory University (Atlanta, USA), la Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), l'Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) et The University of Hull (UK).
Le résultat est impressionnant : il remonte aux premiers travaux de Herbert S. Klein et de ses chercheurs, repris et enrichis progressivement, publiés numériquement une première fois en 1999 sur un CD-Rom. Par la suite 3 prix (2001, 2002 et 2006) ont permis l'enrichissement et le développement de cette base ouverte en ligne.

Superbe et utile !

Marc v/d Dobbelsteen's curator insight, September 9, 2015 3:57 PM

Thousands of Africans try to make the journey to Europe each year as illegal migrants - risking people smugglers, deserts, sea crossings and the possibility of being sent home, all for the dream of a better life.

 

About two-thirds of Africans in Europe are from north Africa (Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia). An increasing number are travelling from Sub-Saharan Africa, mainly heading for the former colonial powers of France, Germany, Italy and the UK. Most Sub-Saharan migrants are from West Africa - Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal, in particular.

Route: Western Sahara Via: Mali, Mauritania, Western Sahara or southern Morocco
