For every great author, there’s another great author eager to knock him or her down a few pegs. Although the writers on this map are typically deemed canonical by literary tastemakers, there wasn’t much mutual admiration amongst them.We’ve mapped out the rivalries and one-sided vendettas of many celebrated writers; just hover over an arrow between two authors to see a cutting insult directed by one to the other.

El 30 de junio de 2014, en Tlatlaya, Estado de México el Ejército Mexicano ejecutó a 22 personas. Algunas de ellas presentaban un “tiro de gracia”. Después de la masacre, los militares montaron una escena de un falso enfrentamiento, sembrando armas en los cuerpos abatidos. A pocos kilómetros de Tlatlaya, en Iguala, Guerrero, la noche del 26 y la madrugada del 27 de septiembre, policías municipales ejecutaron un operativo en contra de un grupo de estudiantes de la Normal Rural “Isidro Burgos” de Ayotzinapa, Guerrero. En el operativo asesinaron a tres de normalista, uno de los cuales fue cruelmente desollado. Asesinaron también a otras tres personas (no estudiantes) e hirieron a más de 20, una de las cuales sufrió muerte cerebral. Las fuerzas policiacas detuvieron y secuestraron a 43 estudiantes, quienes, a más de dos meses de los hechos, siguen sin ser presentados.

 

En Ayotzinapa y Tlatlaya se sintetiza la violencia sistemática del Estado hacia la población, la impunidad generalizada y el acumulado de agravios a los derechos de los pueblos. Pero de un modo más profundo ambos casos representan la dimensión de la ocupación neo-colonial de México y los rasgos más crudos de la dictadura cívico-militar y su estado de excepción permanente como único modo para sostenerse.

Project Big Data is an interactive tool which enables you to visualize and explore the funding patterns of over 600 companies in the Big Data ecosystem! It is based on the work I did for Project C (which you see and can read about here). The list of companies and their classification into categories is based on a dozen published sources and rough text analytics of the Crunchbase database. Crunchbase is a curated crowed sourced database of over 285k companies.

 

As for the data, there are 645 public & private companies in the data set. From Teradata and IBM to Actuate & Zoomdata. I began by harvesting data from Crunchbase by using their free API w/ Python. As of September, Crunchbase had 1250 funding events for 410 of the companies on my list. I've grouped these companies into 18 categories, allowing you to compare peers as well as trends across categories. Some of the categories are broken down further. For example, the tool allows you to differentiate between cloud-based and on premise solutions or SQL vs. NoSQL databases. I gathered additional data from a variety of sources. For example, LinkedIn was used to find the number of employees.

#Violence and guns in best-selling #videogames | #dataviz #opendata | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it
Research into connections between gun violence and video games to violence in real life has been inconclusive. As the hype for the latest in the Grand Theft Auto series builds up, a Guardian analysis of the top 50 video games sold in 2012 found more than half contain violent content labels, as assigned by an independent video game rating board (ESRB). Overall, one-third have weapons that depict real-life firearms

5 Quick Tools for Visualizing Time Zones

5 Quick Tools for Visualizing Time Zones | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

 

Confused by time zones? You’re not alone, if family from out East calling me at 6 AM is any indication. I shouldn’t joke too much: I’ve made similar mistakes.

 

Whether you need to coordinate group meetings across continents or just need to know what time it is in Amsterdam before you call your friend there, these five websites should help reduce your confusion.


1. Hours Apart: Quickly Visualize Different Time Zones
At times you just need a quick comparison. Hours Apart is an easy way to get just that. Add as many cities as you like, and you will see the time in each.


It simple sure but it’s effective, and a great place to start if you’re coordinating a widespread team.


2. Time Map (Android, Free): Full Time Zone Map With Current Times
Sometimes it helps to see times in context. Time map shows you the time and all of Earth’s time zones simultaneously. This free Android app couldn’t be simpler.


3. XKCD’s Now: Comic That Functions as a World Clock
There’s a relevant XKCD for everything – even time zones. Comic 1335 isn’t so much a comic as it is an actual time zone tool, and it’s possibly one of the most useful ones on the web.


The outer ring stays the same, but the inner circle rotates throughout the day – letting you see roughly what time it is in different parts of the world. I’d pay to have this as an actual wall clock, but for now we’ll have to settle with going to XKCD.com/now.


4. Veern (iOS, Free): See What Time it is Where Your Friends are
Courtesy is more complicated when it involves math, as anyone with a friend in a different time zone can tell you. If that’s you, Veern is worth checking out. This simple app lets you add friends with time zone and contact information.


5. Miranda (iOS, Free): Simple Time Zone Clock With Scrolling
Sometimes you just want to quickly see a list of cities alongside the time, or adjust time quickly to get a comparison. Miranda is an iPhone app that lets you do just that.


You’ll see the current time right away, and can turn the wheel to scroll back and forth through time – perfect if you’re trying to schedule a meeting. Rotate your phone and you’ll see a quick visual letting you know where it’s day and where it’s night.

What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.

 

Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.

 

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...

Quand Charles Darwin rencontre Larry Page Le premier arbre phylogénétique, tel qu'il apparaît en 1859 dans De l'origine des espèces au moyen de la sélection naturelle de Charles...

"Dessine-moi un mouton", demandait le Petit Prince à l'aviateur. La représentation graphique a toujours été vecteur de connaissance, mais aujourd'hui, dans une culture qui abandonne peu à peu l'écrit pour l'image, elle devient une composante essentielle de la transmission du savoir. Un second défi se dresse : comment rendre compte de la masse d'informations disponibles pour décrire fidèlement la complexité du monde dans lequel nous évoluons, et notamment la diversité de la biosphère ? La conjugaison de ces deux ambitions a donné naissance au projet OneZoom (www.onezoom.org), un outil numérique qui permet de visualiser une version numérique de l'arbre de la vie. Une immersion dans la biodiversité, et une belle invitation à la curiosité. (...)  - par Guillaume Frasca, La science infuse, 16/10/2012

The authors introduce a new phylogenetic tree viewer that allows interactive display of large trees. The key concept of our solution is that all the data is on one page so that all the user has to do iszoom to reveal it—hence the name OneZoom (http://www.onezoom.org). Our interface is analogous to Google Earth, where one can smoothly zoom into any local landmark from a start page showing the whole globe, recognizing familiar landmarks at different scales along the way (e.g., continents, countries, regions, and towns). Equivalently, OneZoom can zoom smoothly to one tip of the tree of life—say, human beings—passing the familiar clades of animals, vertebrates, mammals, and primates at different scales along the way

How many different graph types exist? How do they relate to one another? Can you use the same graphic type for different types of data? These are the questions that we tried to tackle in our recent project, The Graphic Continuum.

 

Documenting the many chart types is something we were both working on independently for the past couple of years. Severino was building his Data Visualisation Catalogue, an online reference tool of data visualizations. At the same time, I was teaching data visualization to different audiences and was thinking about how to best show my students different graphic types and how they relate to one another.
