Mountains of Data by R. Service for Science Mag

After dozens of Himalayan journeys, David Breashears began to notice that the glaciers were in rapid retreat. In 2007, Breashears formed GlacierWorks, a company that's creating an interactive Web site to allow viewers to navigate Himalayan landscapes constructed from terabytes of high-resolution images. Breashears and his GlacierWorks colleagues are now working with computer scientists and image experts at Microsoft Research to augment the images with numerous other layers of scientific data and models. Viewers will be able to peruse vistas from photos taken at eye level and learn about hydrology and how glaciers accumulate, lose ice, and flow down mountainsides. They'll also be able to manipulate climate models to see the effects on glacial melting and river flows in decades to come.

Argument and Authority: Visual Representations in Science

Richards, Anne R.

Technical Communication Quarterly; Spring2003, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p183-206, 24p

 

This piece is excellent reading for science and health writing instructors who wish to help students understand the use of visual argumentation within the science research article. Some of Richards' useful points include:

 

1) visual arrangements of data are often not DIRECT representations of nature but useful "re-mediations" that respond to hypothesis testing and study design, as well as how to array findings for peer readers;

 

2) titles, captions, and keys are important text pairs to visual displays of information; and

 

3) strategic anchors to data with text sections, particularly the discussion and analysis sections, are important for reader courtesty.

 

The piece contains many excellent examples taken from the archives of a botany journal.
