luiy's curator insight, July 10, 2:07 AM

The role of the data journalist has increased dramatically over the last decade.The past few months have seen the launch of several high-profile “data journalism” or “explanatory journalism” websites in the U.S. and the UK – such as Nate Silver’s recently relaunched and somewhat controversialFiveThirtyEight; Trinity Mirror’s ampp3d, a mobile-first site that publishes snappy viral infographics;The Upshot from The New York Times, which aims to put news into context with data; and Vox, where former Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein leads a team that provides “crucial contextual information” around news. The debates (pro and con) around these projects have brought data journalism out of its niche in digital media conferences and trade publications into the limelight.

 

These new media outlets have been received with both praise and criticism. Guardian journalist James Ball, who has been closely associated with the use of data for journalism – from his work with Wikileaks to the “Offshore Leaks” investigations – recently offered an interesting analysis of these developments. He points out a number of limitations in many of these data journalism projects — from the lack of transparency about their data, to the perpetuation of gender inequality among media professionals (“still a lot of white guys”), to the conspicuous absence of one of journalism’s most essential functions: the breaking of news.

luiy's curator insight, May 1, 5:37 PM

Resuming from last time, I've made some updates to the philosophers' social network including publishing two interactive maps.  Quick introduction: you know that sidebar on wikipedia where it tells you someone was influenced by someone else, linking to them?  These graphs are generated from asking wikipedia for a comprehensive list of every philosopher's influence on every other.  There are some sample-bias issues and data problems I went over in the first part of the series, but overall it's both beautiful and interesting.

 

 

Interactive visuals

 

The first lets you zoom dynamically and makes it easier to see local networks.  When you hover over individual philosophers, those who are not linked to them or from them disappear.  This uses a tool called sigma.js.

Beautiful Interactive Map of Barcelona Digs Into Rich Architectural History

Beautiful Interactive Map of Barcelona Digs Into Rich Architectural History | Visualization Literacy | Scoop.it

Barcelona is one of Europe's most vibrant cities. Tourists flock here for the superb restaurants, lively nightlife, and a chance to check out the stunningly creative architecture of Antoni Gaudí. But the city's historical and cultural roots run deep, and a new interactive map aims to make it easier for visitors and locals alike to explore the city's landmarks.

 

Created by the design firm 300,000 Km/s, the map includes 3,000 notable places, from Roman walls to modern street art. It also includes data on building ages for more than 70,000 properties. All this information was already available, at least in theory, from Barcelona’s city council and the national database of cadastral data.

[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.

Pour les pros des graphiques et de la visualisation de données...!

Ce service en  ligne (version béta, accessible gratuitement sur simple création de compte) est qualifié par l'auteur de l'article de "Rolls du graphique en ligne" et il nous indique que "Plot.ly est aux graphiques ce que Photoshop est à la photo"... Rien de moins.

Les possibilités ont effectivement l'air prometteuses même si cet outil n'est pas forcément très simple d'emploi.

A bit of history

 

In 2013, GrinUGR – Collaboratory for digital cultures in social sciences and humanities started a research project, funded by CEI-BioTic Granada, with the purpose of capturing information about centers, projects and researchers working on Digital Humanities and Social Science. With this name we tried to include not only Humanities but all the Social Sciences approaches (as described for example as eResearch). As a result of this project, in spring 2013, GrinUGR collaborators started to collect cases worldwide and to design the infrastructure to visualize this information on a map. Around 300 cases were collected, including items in Spanish, English and other languages.

 

On June 10, 2013, on the occasion of the celebration of the Día de Humanidades Digitales en español, Élika Ortega and Silvia Gutiérrez launched a questionnaire to collect information on digital humanists (around 80 people responded to it). This initiative was called MapaHD and has been included as a chapter in a forthcoming book edited by GrinUGR and as a conference paper in the next DH Conference in Lausanne.

 

In January 2014, I proposed Elika to create a new resource titled Atlas of Digital Humanities and Social Science using the infrastructure developed by GrinUGR to develop a public database of cases following the initial aims of GrinUGR and MapaHD. As a result today, after 2 months, the Atlas includes 130 researchers, 41 projects, 15 centers and 11 different resources.

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!

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 11:03 AM

Using maps in school is a concern for many educators that know the value of map skills. This article romanticizes maps and the importance of maps and studying them.

Maps are important for location as they can show absolute location to relative location and help with mental maps.
