How Does Data Visualization Work?

How Does Data Visualization Work? | Digital Imaging - Telling the Story | Scoop.it

Data visualization is an amazing tool. The data we deal with daily would be almost entirely inaccessible when locked up in numerical formats. Luckily, data visualization can help us to extract information, insights, or even knowledge from that data. It relies on the remarkable human visual system that turns visible light into meaningful semantics that inform our decisions.

These Interactive Maps Compare 19th Century American Cities to Today

These Interactive Maps Compare 19th Century American Cities to Today | Digital Imaging - Telling the Story | Scoop.it

The Smithsonian magazine recently dipped into David Rumsey's collection of over 150,000 maps to find some of the best representations of American cities over the past couple hundred years. With some simple programming, they were able to overlay images of vintage maps of some major cities onto satellite images from today. The results are fascinating.
