Visualization: The Simple Way to Simplify Big Data

Visualization: The Simple Way to Simplify Big Data | Visual Explorations | Scoop.it

Data visualization has an amazing ability to make the complex simple, and the latest tools can do much more than give everyone the same view of data. It’s only through visualization that we can take something as abstract as symbols ...

Geographic Imagination in the English Anthem 'Jerusalem'

Geographic Imagination in the English Anthem 'Jerusalem' | Visual Explorations | Scoop.it

"I first learned to appreciate this anthem as a child watching the movie Chariots of Fire with my father.  I missed the rich cultural symbolism and the allegorical uses of landscape embedded within this nationalistic song."

I greatly enjoyed writing this article about the geographic imaginations and yearnings that are embedded in the great nationalistic anthem 'Jerusalem.'  The audio, lyrics and full analysis are all available here.

Minimalist Visualizations Convey Differences In Eastern And Western Cultures

Minimalist Visualizations Convey Differences In Eastern And Western Cultures | Visual Explorations | Scoop.it

Germany-based artist and visual designer Yang Liu has created a series of truthful graphics that explains the differences in Eastern and Western culture. 

Yang Liu was born in China but has lived in Germany since she was 14, and thus she is able to explain the differences in cultures. 

Based on her own experience, she created minimalistic visualizations using simple symbols and shapes to convey just how different the two cultures are. 

In the visualizations below, the blue side represents western culture, while the red side represents eastern culture.

luiy's curator insight, May 2, 2013 8:52 AM

Beginning with the origins, Oycib means in Mayan language "the place of honey". In this projet, Oycib is an e-Research infrastructure for the Collective Intelligence Analysis.

 

With Oycib infrastructure we propose an analysis model, based in the digital practices and collaboration profiles for the development of Social Learning and the Context Awareness in the Collective Intelligence process.

 

The infrastructure design and the profiles proposed here, are based on historical studies about social organization glyphs in Mayan culture made by Montgomery (2002) and Calvin (2012).

 

Initially we worked with four collaboration profiles: the "Itzaat", the "Pitziil", the "Ayuxul" and the "Sajal" (profiles), but we can find others depending of the organization context. Thus, it's important to mention that each profile is found based on the e-Xploración model and they are the qualitative and quantitative interpretation of the collaborative practices. In this way, we propose methods based on Social Network Analysis for the learning and knowledge management.

 

Thus, the network in Oycib is called "Kaan" (sky or network in Mayan Lenguage). In the "Kaan" we present the visualization of the subjects and objects, such as persons, forums, blogs, files, groups and all the interactions among them. Additionally, each profile and their interactions is presented.

 

... you can interact with "Kaan" here.
