[Video] Visualizing The Hidden Cosmos | The Making Of "Dark Universe"

[Video] Visualizing The Hidden Cosmos | The Making Of "Dark Universe" | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

An in-depth look at how scientists are visualizing dark matter.

 

Though the Hayden Planetarium has been bringing visitors on visual voyages for years, its most recent space show celebrates both the known and unknown corners of life—from the matter that surrounds us to the anti-matter, or dark matter (matter that doesn't emit or absorb light, yet still has a gravitational force), which we're just beginning to understand. The program brings viewers from 3D-renderings of space crafts and the Milky Way, all the way into space 100 million light years away—the place where the Hubble Telescope first noticed that the universe is expanding due to dark matter. Dark Universe then offers viewers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dive into the dark energy responsible for the cosmic growth of everything.

To see inside this (literally) universe-expanding work of art and science, The Creators Project took a look behind-the-scenes of Dark Universe, and interviewed the production specialists at at GOTO Inc, the 3D-modelers at HiFi 3D, and even celeb-scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson and Modecai-Mark Mac Low.

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation. 

‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’. 
Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.

The city as network - Social Physics | #dataviz #UrbanFlows | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it
Traditionally, cities have been viewed as the sum of their locations – the buildings, monuments, squares and parks that spring to mind when we think of ‘New York’, ‘London’ or ‘Paris’. In The new science of cities (Amazon US| Amazon UK), Michael Batty argues that a more productive approach is to think of cities in terms of …

Flows are not just the connectors between these important locations. Rather, the locations become important because – at least in part – they’re at the intersections.

Monitoring the World's Forests with Global Forest Watch

Monitoring the World's Forests with Global Forest Watch | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

Global Forest Watch uses satellite imagery and other technologies to estimate forest usage, change, and tree cover (among other things). These estimates and their eventual actions used to be slow. Now they're near-real-time.

This Is What Informal Transit Looks Like When You Actually Map It

This Is What Informal Transit Looks Like When You Actually Map It | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it
An experiment from Nairobi with implications for the urbanizing world.

As transit systems go, the "matatus" in Nairobi exist somewhere between underground gypsy cabs and MTA bus service. The minibuses themselves aren't owned by any government agency. The fares aren't regulated by the city. The routes are vaguely based on a bus network that existed in Nairobi some 30 years ago, but they've since shifted and multiplied and expanded.

Not surprisingly, many passengers on board know little about them, either. Riders who navigate the matatu system rely on it in parts, using only the lines they know and the unofficial stops they're sure actually exist. As for the network as a whole – there's never even been a map of it...

Using State Maps in School

Using State Maps in School | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

"Have you ever seen a map and marveled over all of the information that it contains? It is incredible how maps can capture so much of the real world and depict so many places. From big cities to small towns, maps use characteristics such as topography, hydrography, industry, and recreation to tell the story of a place."

National Geographic Education has just finished producing all 50 State Tabletop Mapmaker kits which focus on basic mapping skills for younger audiences.  This set of tiled 8.5 x 11 sheets really expands what you can do and to help educators know what to do with these resources, they wrote this article that shows 9 ways to use these new state maps in your classroom.  I'm looking forward to printing off the Rhode Island state map!

luiy's curator insight, March 19, 7:08 AM

Pour avancer sur cette idée, nous avons choisi l’ontologie de Bloom que nous avons créée dans le cadre du projet ILOT (voir cet article). Dans son état actuel, il s’agit principalement d’un thésaurus, qui aurait pu être représenté en SKOS, mais, qui, pour des raisons liées au déroulement du projet ILOT, a été réalisée sous forme d’une ontologie OWL, exploitant une partie du vocabulaire de SKOS. Clairement, il s’agit d’un arbre composant un vocabulaire avec des concepts/mots généraux et une hiérarchie de mots limitant le champs du concept.

 

L’ontologie est disponible ici.

 

Pour l’affichage Web d’un arbre, nous avons rapidement identifié la librairie javascript d3.js comme étant fiable et facilement adaptable,offrant diverses possibilités pour l’affichage de données arborescentes.

 

d3.js offre des fonctionnalités intéressantes pour charger des données décrites dans une structure json et les afficher. Pour cela, on va partir d’un modèle d’affichage d’arbre avec un fonctionnement par défaut de l’objet tree, qui suppose une structure bien définie de l’objet json, mais qui repose sur des méthodes que l’on peut redéfinir. En première approche, il suffit de redéfinir deux méthodes:

 

children, qui partant d’un nœud renvoie une table de ses fils directs,une fonction qui renvoie le label à afficher pour un nœud donné. 

Nous y reviendrons une fois générée la structure JSON que nous allons utiliser.

14 World-Changing Data Visualizations from the Last 4 Centuries

14 World-Changing Data Visualizations from the Last 4 Centuries | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

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.

Time varying networks and the weakness of strong ties | #patterns #rumor #SNA

Time varying networks and the weakness of strong ties | #patterns #rumor #SNA | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

In most social and information systems the activity of agents generates rapidly evolving time-varying networks. The temporal variation in networks' connectivity patterns and the ongoing dynamic processes are usually coupled in ways that still challenge our mathematical or computational modelling. Here we analyse a mobile call dataset and find a simple statistical law that characterize the temporal evolution of users' egocentric networks. We encode this observation in a reinforcement process defining a time-varying network model that exhibits the emergence of strong and weak ties. We study the effect of time-varying and heterogeneous interactions on the classic rumour spreading model in both synthetic, and real-world networks. We observe that strong ties severely inhibit information diffusion by confining the spreading process among agents with recurrent communication patterns. This provides the counterintuitive evidence that strong ties may have a negative role in the spreading of information across networks.

Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch

Google's Next Goal: To Stop Deforestation with Global Forest Watch | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

Deforestation has long been cited as a problem, but a lack of accessible data meant that the general public had to take someone's word for the figures. As a result, its threat always seemed more abstract and nebulous than, say, climate change or rising sea levels.

 

Until now: Google has unveiled its Global Forest Watch, an online tool that monitors deforestation around the world in near-real time.

One role of media should be to act like those speed monitors we see that tell us how fast we are going. Hopefully a program like Google's Global Forest Watch can help us monitor deforestation in real time.
