Culturegraphy [culturegraphy.com], developed by "Information Model Maker" Kim Albrecht reveals represent complex relationships of over 100 years of movie references.

 

Movies are shown as unique nodes, while their influences are depicted as directed edges. The color gradients from blue to red that originate in the1980s denote the era of postmodern cinema, the era in which movies tend to adapt and combine references from other movies.

 

Although the visualizations look rather minimalistic at first sight, their interactive features are quite sophisticated and the resulting insights are naturally interesting. Therefore, do not miss out the explanatory movie below.

The GLEAM Simulator system  | #dataviz #complexity #prediction #visualisation | Social Foraging | Scoop.it

The GLEAM Simulator system consists of the GLEAM Server and the GLEAMviz Client application.

 

The GLEAM Server uses GLEAM as the engine to perform the simulations. This server runs on high-performance computers managed by the GLEAM project.

 

The GLEAMviz Client is a desktop application through which users interact with the GLEAM Server. It provides a simple, intuitive and visual way to set up simulations, develop disease models, and evaluate simulation results using a variety of maps, charts and data analysis tools.

 Visualisation and analysis

 

GLEAMviz offers three types of visualization. The first shows the spread of the infection on a zoomable 2D map while charts show the number of new cases at various levels of detail.

The exhibit features classic illustrations dating to 1603, including John Snow’s map of London’s SoHo that’s credited with revealing a contaminated water pump as the source of a 1854 cholera outbreak. There also are beautiful modern visualizations of data from satellites and gene sequencers. The exhibit, Beautiful Science: Picturing Data, Inspiring Insight, runs through May 26.
