14 Complex Data Visualizations That Take The Form Of A Tree

14 Complex Data Visualizations That Take The Form Of A Tree | Digital Humanities | Scoop.it

 

Infographics might seem like a modern phenomenon—citizens of the internet love nothing more than a nice and tidy presentation of catchy stats—but data viz dates way, way back. In The Book of Trees: Visualizing Branches of Knowledge, interaction designer Manuel Lima examines a recurring theme: more than eight centuries' worth of trees used as diagrams, and why botanical iconography has endured from those early days through to the digital revolution.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 16, 2014 1:21 PM

This passage struck me: "We desperately need a discipline whose sole purpose is to investigate, experiment, and create meanings for this new electronic world of information. That is the role of the digital humanities today." 

Am I being too simplistic when I say that libraries and librarians already provide this discipline? Maybe I'm reading this wrong but I am struck by what this writer calls Digital Humanities and where this concept is in relation to libraries.
