Interesting post by Jeff Clark on Neoformix

 

"I consider myself one small part of a community on Twitter that focuses on information visualization, computational design, and interaction design. Collectively we tweet about our personal work, highlight other work of quality or that has interesting characteristics, critique approaches or individual designs, discuss tools and techniques, and suggest interesting datasets or projects. I'm grateful to be connected with such an interesting group of people and I've learned a great deal from them.

Moritz Stefaner is an important part of this group and in July 2011 he created an interesting map of this community he calls The VIZoSPHERE. Basically, he started from a set of 18 selected twitter accounts, found their friends and followers and included any twitter account that met a minimum criterion of connectedness. A small version of part of this map is below. Node sizes reflect the number of followers within this community".

Visualisation Tools and Resources | Drawing by Numbers

Visualisation Tools and Resources | Drawing by Numbers | Giornalismo Digitale | Scoop.it

Drawing by numbers organises data visualisation tools under four categories - Charts and graphs; Mapping and mashups; Design, layout and presentation; and Data management tools. Browse through them below.

 

However advanced their capabilities, most of the tools profiled here address fairly simple data and design tasks. They also have feature sets that anyone with a little technical knowledge (and some persistence) could use to make something. They all have acceptable support structures and materials and a degree of non-English language support. They are also all free to use or open source. There are commercial alternatives to these tools as well, and we will be profiling them soon.
