The Urban Observatory: A New Way To Compare Cities, From The Creator Of TED

The Urban Observatory: A New Way To Compare Cities, From The Creator Of TED | Visual information | Scoop.it
This giant installation and a website you can play with at home lets you compare the worlds urban centers side by side.

We live in a world of easily accessible maps; however, our map knowledge is limited by the fact that no two cities collect data the same way. Maps often aren’t drawn to the same scale, and until now, there hasn’t been a way to compare data on things like income, cost of living, water distribution, and power grids.

It’s a problem that has bugged Richard Saul Wurman, the creator of the TED conference (as well as an architect and graphic designer), for decades.

Wurman recently teamed up with Jon Kamen of Radical Media and Esri president Jack Dangermond to create an ambitious solution: the Urban Observatory, an immersive exhibit featuring standardized comparative data on over 16 cities. Zoom in on one city map and other cities will simultaneously zoom in at the same scale, making it possible to compare data on traffic density, vegetation, residential land use, and so on.

In the academic world, data visualization is broken into three main categories: Information Visualization (InfoVis), Visual Analytics, and Scientific Visualization (SciVis).


InfoVis deals with smaller datasets, typically demographic or financial data.


Visual analytics involves a cycle of rapidly creating visualizations to answer and generate new questions about a dataset.

Infographics are typically in the realm of InfoVis, and often they show the results of the visual analytics process, but SciVis is not really a part of most infographics.

I agree Nik, good supporting facts regarding the use of visualization

very interesting article about info graphics, thank you, Nik.

Explains the rise in use of infographics to manage large quantities of data. But I have to ask: are we visual learners by nature or have we become visual learners because of emerging technologies?

The Power of Visual Content and Brand Visuals in Action - TopRank

The Power of Visual Content and Brand Visuals in Action - TopRank | Visual information | Scoop.it
Marketers see greater success in visual content marketing by aligning their customers' information needs with an understanding of how they retain information.

 

Key excerpt...

 

The majority of people are visual learners, either primarily or in combination with other styles. You’ll see a range of stats on the percentage of learners in each group, though 30% visual, 25% auditory, 15% kinesthetic and 30% mixed learning styles is a commonly accepted figure. These are the three major learning styles and though one person may use a combination of styles to take in information, we all lean towards one primary preference.

Kinesthetic learners best retain information they discover through touching, feeling and experiencing material. You might think there is no real “touch” in digital information, yet this is where interactive games and touchscreens are an important tool.Auditory learners consume and retain information best by listening, often through repetitive information. Podcasting is a good way to connect with auditory learners.Visual learners, the largest portion, want you to “Show me so I can understand.” You might accomplish this through charts, infographics, video demonstrations, comics, visual e-books, photos, or even animation… the point is, you are acknowledging this unique learning style and tailoring information for best consumption and comprehension.

In case you needed a reminder. This doesn't mean you fill your content pipeline with infographics. It does mean, however, that you need to be cognizant on how to deliver each piece of content.
