Robin Good's curator insight, February 2, 2014 5:47 AM



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.

A great collection of data visualisation tools, categorised by the characteristics of the data you want to show.

Cori Zuppo's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:21 AM

The Data Visualization Catalogue is a powerful tool to guide selection of data visualization methodologies. I am looking forward to incorporating this resource into my courses wherever possible.

A social networking site is not an open access repository | An open world (?) | Scoop.it
“What’s the difference between ResearchGate, Academia.edu, and the institutional repository?” “I put my papers in ResearchGate, is that enough for the open access policy? These and similar questions have been been common at open access events over the past couple of years. Authors want to better understand the differences between these platforms and when they should use one, the other, or some combination. First, a brief primer on what each service has to offer: ResearchGate and Academia.edu ResearchGate and Academia.edu are social networking platforms whose primary aim is to connect researchers with common interests.

Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:
Many academics adopt academic social networks as digital spaces to promote open science practices. However, there is debate around whether these spaces really support open science.

Privacy, Anonymity, and Big Data in the Social Sciences - ACM Queue

Privacy, Anonymity, and Big Data in the Social Sciences - ACM Queue | An open world (?) | Scoop.it
Quality social science research and the privacy of human subjects requires trust.
Juliana Elisa Raffaghelli's insight:

In educational research (as branch of social sciences) the debate on open datasets raise the (rather BIG) problem of dealing with personal information. This article raises very well the issue taking into consideration the edX MOOCs first year of activity (analysis performed on 16 MOOCs).

Some insights: I guess this debate can be placed within the wider scope of educational data mining (datasets are the final presentation of mined data). So an interdisciplinary approach to study the problem should take into consideration both the research problems of open datasets and the research problems of educational data mining/learning analytics. I'll keep on digging on the issue.
