What Does Big Data Look Like?

What Does Big Data Look Like? | interactive journalism | Scoop.it

A simple Google image search on “big data” reveals numerous instances of three dimensional one’s and zero’s, a few explanatory infographics, and even the interface from The Matrix. So what does “big data” look like, within human comprehension?

From the beginning of recorded time until 2003, humans had created 5 exabytes (5 billion gigabytes) of data. In 2011, the same amount was created every two days. It’s true that we’ve made leaps and bounds with showing earlier generations of data. However, when it comes to today’s big data, how it looks can help convey information but it needs to be more than just beautiful and superficial. It has to work, show multiple dimensions, and be useful.

New software and technologies have enabled us to gain higher level access to understanding these enormous sets of data. However, the only way we’re going to truly gather and juice all the information big data is worth is to apply a level of relatively unprecedented data visualization. How do we get to actionable analysis, deeper insight, and visually comprehensive representations of the information? The answer: we need to make data more human.

Drinking from a fire hose is not possible.

Neither is reading in a data stream of about 2,5 billion gigabytes per day!

This Interactive Sochi Calendar Completely Reinvents How We Understand Scheduling

This Interactive Sochi Calendar Completely Reinvents How We Understand Scheduling | interactive journalism | Scoop.it

Calendars are a fairly well-understood, unquestioned form of linear organization. Rarely is the format questioned or challenged, but once you see this new interactive circular calendar produced by creative agency Column Five and hosted by SportsInteraction, you’ll wonder how you ever thought you’d understand the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics without it.

The incredibly intuitive calendar sorts the Sochi events by sport and date. Each color represents a sport while each ring representing a day, all of which is completely interactive and has the events listed by an American time zone for our stateside convenience.

As the information becomes available, the calendar will have more country and competitor data listed, along with results being continuously updated.

Self explicit! The actual interactive visualization module cannot be accessed from sites in Greece, though, as it is hosted on a Games gambling site, blocked at least by our provider. Pitty.
