Types of Graphs [infographic] | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

Graphs are a visual treat, as they can present complex information in a quick and easy manner. Mostly graphs are used to reveal a trend, compare statistics or they can be even used to establish relationship between two different variables.

There are several types of graphs and each graph has different display properties to represent the data. Based on the information, choose a graph that depicts data in an effective way.
This infographic shares some interesting information about different graph types.

The Intersection of Geography & Data: 2012's Best Maps

The Intersection of Geography & Data: 2012's Best Maps | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

It's been an eventful year for cartography.

 

Development and disaster continue to mold the physical world, but for mapmakers, keeping up with geographic changes is busy work -- a tweaked direction here, a freeway exit there. It's very important busy work, as we learned this September when Apple reminded us not to take a good map for granted.

 

The intersection of geography and data, though, is just beginning to fill out. Together with interactive functions like sliders, timelines, and embedded information, the best new maps resemble Rand McNally's about as much as movies look like photographs. Creating an accurate representation of geography and infrastructure is only the tip of the iceberg.

What happens when you integrate statistics about rising seas, gang affiliations, metaphors and beer?

 

A whole new understanding of the way the world works. And some pretty sweet maps. Without further ado, the top favorite maps of the year...

Examples are supplemented with a summary of the intent, process + graphics of each map, noting the elements that make for successful representations of specific concepts, ideas + data.

From urban issues to voting trends to navigation apps and software, maps are tools that can be highly effective in data visualization, as evidenced in this cartographic collection curated by the Atlantic Cities.

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis

The Human Algorithm: Redefining the Value of Data | Brian Solis | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

Excerpted from this interesting article by Brian Solis:
"While the amount of personal and ambient information churned out by SoLoMo is often inundating or even perplexing, it is this “big” data that will help businesses evolve and adapt in a new era of connected consumerism. More importantly, the study and understanding of relevant big data will shift organizations from simply reacting to trends to predicting the next disruption and adapting ahead of competition—thus, marking the shift from rigid to adaptive business models.

Without interpretation, insight and the ability to put knowledge to work, any investment in technology and resources is premature. But, by investing in human capital to make sense of would be ominous data, organizations can modernize the role of business intelligence to introduce a human touch.

The reality is though that how organizations connected with customers yesterday is not how customers will be served tomorrow. Meaning, the entire infrastructure in how we market, sell, help, and create now requires companies to not only study data and behavior but also change how it thinks about customers.

I refer to the confluence of data and interpretation as the human algorithm—the ability to humanize technology and data to put a face, personality, and voice to the need and chance for change. Data tells a story, it just needs help finding its rhythm and rhyme.

The human algorithm is part understanding and part communication. The ability to communicate and apply insights internally and externally is the key to unlocking opportunities to earn relevance. Beyond research, beyond intelligence, the human algorithm is a function of extracting insights with intention, humanizing trends ad possibilities and working with strategists to improve and innovate everything from processes to products to overall experiences.

The idea of the human algorithm is to serve as the human counterpart to the abundance of new social intelligence and listening platforms hitting the market every day. Someone has to be on the other side of data to interpret it beyond routine..."

L'algorithme de l'homme: Redéfinir la valeur des données | Brian SolisDe www.briansolis.com - Décembre 21, 2012 13:33

Extrait de cet article intéressant par Brian Solis: 
«Bien que la quantité de renseignements personnels et la température ambiante égrenée par SoLoMo est souvent inondé, voire perplexe, c'est ce« gros »des données qui aideront les entreprises évoluent et s'adaptent à une nouvelle ère du consumérisme connecté . Plus important encore, l'étude et la compréhension des données pertinentes grandes organisations se déplacera de se contenter de réagir aux tendances de prédire la rupture prochaine et l'adaptation d'avance sur la concurrence ainsi, marquant le passage d'rigide pour les modèles d'affaires adaptés. Sans interprétation, la perspicacité et la capacité d'appliquer les connaissances acquises, tout investissement dans la technologie et les ressources est prématurée. Mais, en investissant dans le capital humain de donner un sens serait de mauvais augure de données, les entreprises peuvent moderniser le rôle de l'intelligence d'affaires pour introduire une touche humaine. La réalité est cependant que comment les organisations liées aux clients d'hier n'est pas la façon dont les clients seront servis demain. Signification, toute l'infrastructure dans notre façon de commercialiser, de vendre, d'aider et de créer des entreprises exige maintenant que les données de l'étude et le comportement non seulement, mais aussi changer la façon dont il pense les clients. Je me réfère à la confluence des données et l'interprétation que l'algorithme de la capacité humaine à humaniser la technologie et les données de mettre un visage, la personnalité et la voix de la nécessité et de possibilité de changement. Données raconte une histoire, il a juste besoin d'aide pour trouver son rythme et la rime. L'algorithme de compréhension humaine est partie et de la communication une partie. La capacité de communiquer et d'appliquer des connaissances à l'interne et l'externe est la clé pour débloquer des possibilités de gagner leur pertinence. Au-delà de la recherche, au-delà de l'intelligence, l'algorithme humain est une fonction d'extraction des connaissances avec intention , l'humanisation des possibilités tendances publicitaires et de travailler avec les stratèges d'améliorer et d'innover tout de processus pour les produits à des expériences globales. L'idée de l'algorithme de l'homme est de servir l'homologue humain de l'abondance de l'intelligence sociale nouvelle et plates-formes d'écoute arrivent sur le marché chaque jour .
