The Science Behind Data Visualisation

The Science Behind Data Visualisation | Las Tics y las ciencias de la informacion | Scoop.it

'Over the last couple of centuries, data visualisation has developed to the point where it is in everyday use across all walks of life. Many recognise it as an effective tool for both storytelling and analysis, overcoming most language and educational barriers. But why is this? How are abstract shapes and colours often able to communicate large amounts of data more effectively than a table of numbers or paragraphs of text?

An understanding of human perception will not only answer this question, but will also provide clear guidance and tools for improving the design of your own visualisations.

 

In order to understand how we are able to interpret data visualisations so effectively, we must start by examining the basics of how we perceive and process information, in particular visual information.'

Interesting article, how our brain see data, possible implication for how mobile research apps are designed

Content Curation: From Information To Knowledge [Video]

Robin Good: Start this video clip at 1':42" (up to 3':30") and you can get a pretty good idea of what a content curator does and why what he does has so much to do with sense-making, making things understandable for others and ultimately extracting contextualized "meaning" from information "as is".

 

Must-see. Excellent. 9/10

 

 

P.S.: Thanks to Howard Rheingold for spotting this clip and sharing it.
