8 Fantastic Examples of Data Storytelling

8 Fantastic Examples of Data Storytelling | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

Data provides us with much more of a backstory that we usually realize. Maybe it’s because it takes an amazingly trained mind to harvest that data, or to create something visually compelling out of it—but we can do so much more with data than simply draw conclusions.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

My favorite one among these 8: How Seattle Residents Determine Housing. This infographic shows at one sight what are the main criteria when it comes to housing.

Are infographics the future of business intelligence?Business intelligence adoption remains low in many companies - even if it's used at all. There are many reasons for this.

This was a game changer for a project I'm running in IBM.  The moment we were able to present data in a more visual way the users responded completely differently - even though the data itself was identical.  We in effect did some of the 'heavy lifting' in interpreting the data and refocused user 'call to action' away from interpretation and instead onto prioritization of what they were seeing and deciding what step to take next.

There’s a simple takeaway from all this: be careful when designing visualizations, and be extra careful when interpreting graphs created by others.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"With great power, comes great responsibilities"... That is the first thought that came out of my mind when reading this article.


Data visualization is really a powerful way to communicate and break through, so it has to be handled with care and the audience needs to be aware and careful as well.


Now you're advised! ;)

Who better than Visual.ly to share 7 online tools that will help you create visual, be they simple images, infographics or a mind map. This post shares the following tools:

* Canva - a free tool

* Pixlr - a free tool

* PicMonkey - a free tool, but you may pay for additional tools

* Quozio - free tool

* Share As Image - a free tool, but will show a watermark; pay for no watermark

* Skitch - free through Evernote

* Coggle - free tool that allows you to create mind maps

Visuals are a key part of learning. These seven tools provide a range of options that you may want to use when designing materials for your classes (or perhaps students would find use for them in your class).

Science may be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be ugly. These images, from a new exhibit at the British Library, show how beautiful scientific data can be.

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.

Via Beth Dichter
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Thanks to Richard Byrne / @Beth Dichter for sharing a post on a new search engine, Athenir.

This visual search engine provides a view that may help learners discover additional search terms, allowing them to more easily find the information they are looking for. His post (linked to by clicking his name above) explains that this is just the beginning with additional items being added over the summer. 


Providing learners access to search engines beyond Google, Bing and Yahoo is important. There are many search engines that are geared to younger students, that are more visual in nature...this list could go on. The visual component of this is colorful and allows learners to view their search in a format that many find helpful.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 3, 2014 10:08 PM

This is a very useful list of tools that teachers can use to make their class room pedagogy more interesting and effective. The four online tools suggested by the writer include: Piktochart, Easel.ly, Canva, and Google Draw. I personally use webcharts and flow charts with a start and stop button. It does take some time to draw the webchart on the Greenboard, so I guess it would save time to do the same before class and then present it on a screen. This can be done very effectively in the teaching of Languages. Take for example a plot line for a novel where you have a flow of events starting from the introduction, on to the ascending movement or the complication on to the climax, or the turning point and then the ascending movement on to the anti climax and then the denouement. This could be beautifully done in an infographic! Infographics are visual representations of data that can be used to depict pictorially, timelines, process of transformation in  characters in novels, flow charts, plot lines, and information!

3 tips for companies to reduce carbon in their supply chains [infographic]

3 tips for companies to reduce carbon in their supply chains  [infographic] | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

Cutting carbon is not just about reducing emissions. The bulk of the problem lies along the supply chain, which should be meaningfully engaged.

The corporate sector is facing some stark and irrefutable truths regarding climate change.

First, at over 400 parts per million, atmospheric carbon is skyrocketing. If large companies are going to achieve their carbon reduction targets, it's imperative that they engage their supply base.

Visit the link for three top tips on how to kick-off doing so.
