30 Can't Miss Data Visualization Blogs | Visual Loop | Data Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

As data visualization expands its reach – through the rise of Massive Online Courses, the countless events and, most significantly, the interconnection between different disciplines and knowledge fields that produce inspiring works and innovative projects -, it’s only natural that the number of folks writing about it keeps rising.


There are literally hundreds of interesting blogs out there, covering all the aspects surrounding the production of quality, effective data visualizations.

Why this "Data Visualization & Storytelling" Topic?

Why this "Data Visualization & Storytelling" Topic? | Data Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

A straightforward answer would be the famous quote: "A picture worth thousands of words".


Here, my aim is to gather and offer the best articles from across the web that I can find on using Data Visualization and Storytelling in business.


I have bunch data visualization and storytelling together since Data visualization is, to me, a great means to perform Storytelling.

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.

Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...


How To Find A Topic: Use the popular Tags panel above or Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the scoops and articles with that keyword will appear.


Note: I may occasionally review an article that I find out the either my insights were not giving accurately enough my stand-point.


I hope you find many great insights and interesting scoop here.

Some times, when you are a KM'er, you just have to have a sense of humor - here's a model that intentionally makes no sense...which puts it then a step above those models that intend to make sense....but yet don't.  From the WTF Visualizations site (yes, that "WTF" and their tagline is: "Visualizations that make no sense") - a catchy little graphic that makes about as much sense as some of the models that I've seen in KM (e.g. -  Three Legged Stool; KM Pyramid; 3 Circles; KM Frameworks; maturity models, and so on)

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

The brain is quite unlike a computer,” Allen told The Economistmagazine last year. “Instead of memory and a few calculating elements, evolution designed every little bit of it to be hideously complex. And then when you start studying every little bit of it, you find there’s even additional complexity. Understanding how the brain works is a fiendishly challenging problem.”

Slideshare The Visual Marketing SEO RPG - NEW @Scoopit BLOW IT UP Study | Data Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it
Scoop.it StudyI've often thought Slideshare was the great underutilized weapon of content marketing. Thinking that and having the data to prove are two different things. Thanks to the team at Scoop.it we now have the data to prove what I've FELT. In an extensive study the Scoop.it team shifted my thinking on Slideshare. Always knew Slideshare was POWERFUL SEO VooDoo because I've had several decks BLOW UP such as:http://www.slideshare.net/martinmartysmith/storytelling-new-seo Absolute #1 position on "Storytelling is the new SEO" and has been top ranked for over a year. http://www.slideshare.net/martinsellingzoe/content-marketing-network This deck held on for a year and has slide out of ranking now. You don't get much more SEO competitive than "Storytelling is the New SEO" and "Content Marketing Network so personal validation supports the Scoop.it team's great work here. The other paradigm they shifted for me today was thinking of Slideshare as an important "visual marketing" tool. Decks are LEAN, FAST and VIRAL so great ways to share and build authority and traffic. Just wish I could get my Slideshare profile styled better. Anyone know the secret sauce for that? Great work Scoopiteers!

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.

It’s not often that you hear Budweiser and Shakespeare mentioned in the same breath. But according to new research from Johns Hopkins University, the Bard’s deft application of storytelling techniques featured prominently in the beer company’s Super Bowl commercial.

Regardless of the content of the ad, the structure of that content predicted its success. “People are attracted to stories,” Quesenberry tells me, “because we’re social creatures and we relate to other people.”
