Data visualization: A picture is worth billions of bytes - Computerworld (blog)

Data visualization: A picture is worth billions of bytes - Computerworld (blog) | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

"The rise of the data visualization follows what businesses have labeled the consumerization of IT.  Employees expect to have the same technology experience at work that they get at (their digital) home – which is a much more intuitive way of consuming the services that are enabled by technology. There are countless examples of this, from applications that give an at-a-glance view of your sleeping patterns, or let people order and watch their taxicab’s approach in real time on their smartphone. Little wonder executives are increasingly asking why they can’t get a similar experience at work."

ghbrett's insight:

What is interesting about this article is that it maps out the value of visualization for the provider of the data viz to other people including staff, clients, or general public.

 

Already we are seeing "InfoGraphics" in many online venues. These are abridged visualizations that provide content in a blink or a few blinks of an eye. Enough information that the prose and data behind would rarely have been read.

New MIT Media Lab Tool Lets Anyone Visualize Unwieldy Government Data - Co.Design

New MIT Media Lab Tool Lets Anyone Visualize Unwieldy Government Data - Co.Design | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

"In the four years since the U.S. government created data.gov, the first national repository for open data, more than 400,000 datasets have become available online from 175 agencies like the USDA, the Department of Energy, and the EPA. Governments all over the world have taken steps to make their data more transparent and available to the public. But in practice, much of that data--accessible as spreadsheets through sites like data.gov--is incomprehensible to the average person, who might not know how to wrangle huge data sets. Never-ending tables mean next to nothing to me, even if I know that they might be hiding some interesting relationship within their numbers, like how income stacks up with happiness."

Glad to see tools like this emerging in response to the virtual doors opening to Big Data from different organizations.

Query a Google Spreadsheet like a Database with Google Visualization API Query Language

Query a Google Spreadsheet like a Database with Google Visualization API Query Language | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

Libraries  (and others) make much use of spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are easy to create, and most library staff are familiar with how to use them. But they can quickly get unwieldy as more and more data are enter...

 

..Google Visualization API Query Language provides a quick and easy way to query a Google spreadsheet and return and display a selective set of data without actually converting a spreadsheet into a database. You can display the query result in the form of a HTML table, which can be served as a stand-alone webpage. All you have to do is to construct a custom URL."

This is an interesting concept. I haven't tried it yet, but will return with further thought once I have.
