What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | 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...

Pro Data Visualization using R and JavaScript makes the R language approachable, and promotes theidea of data gathering and analysis. You’ll see how to use R to interrogate and analyze your data, and then use the D3 JavaScript library to format and display that data in an elegant, informative, and interactive way. You will learn how to gather data effectively, and also how to understand the philosophy and implementation of each type of chart, so as to be able to represent the results visually.

With the popularity of the R language, the art and practice of creating data visualizations is no longer the preserve of mathematicians, statisticians, or cartographers. As technology leaders, we can gather metrics around what we do and use data visualizations to communicate that information. Pro Data Visualization using R and JavaScript combines the power of the R language with the simplicity and familiarity of JavaScript to display clear and informative data visualizations.

Gathering and analyzing empirical data is the key to truly understanding anything. We can track operational metrics to quantify the health of our products in production. We can track quality metrics of our projects, and even use our data to identify bad code. Visualizing this data allows anyone to read our analysis and easily get a deep understanding of the story the data tells.

What you’ll learnA rich understanding of how to gather, and analyze empirical dataHow to tell a story with data using data visualizationsWhat types of data visualizations are best to use for the story that you want to tell with your dataA comprehensive introduction to the R language, covering all the essentialsExploration of how to construct interactive data visualizations using JavaScript and JavaScript librariesWho this book is for

Developers at all levels interested in data visualization, beginning to intermediate engineering managers, statisticians, mathematicians, economists and any others interested in data visualization.

Top 6 Tips for Big Data Visualization

Top 6 Tips for Big Data Visualization | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

As companies are leaning on the convergence of Big Data and Business Intelligence (BI) to make more informed and cost-effective decisions, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure data is presented in a more effective and efficient way – enter the rise of data visualization. From infographics to heat maps, data visualization is a great tool for showcasing complicated data or displaying important inferences in a visual format, which can be easily digested for visual learners.


Data visualization, however, requires planning and proper execution to achieve the expected outcomes. The challenge arises in how data visualization aides are created and presented, and how to provide proper interpretation.

 

Here are six tips for using data visualization effectively when presenting big data results and complex data sets.

ghbrett's insight:

SlideShare is one of the exemplary sites that uses graphics / images as a means for communication. Some files include text for description, others may not. The use of topics and tags makes it easy for users to locate files that are relevant to their interests. Plus, Slideshare is easy to share with other social media tools. Plus it makes it easy for an individual to begin following other people with similar interests.

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

The NY Times is beginning a new feature called "What's Going on in this Picture?" This post introduces Visual Thinking Strategies (V.T.S.).

"How do you make sense of what you see when you look at an image, especially if that image comes with no caption, headline, links or other clues about its origins? What can constructing meaning from an image teach you?"

While V.T.S. uses works of visual art, the NT Times will be using photojournalism and hosting an online discussion. On Monday they will post an image "with no caption, no headline and no helpful link back to an article." The goal is to answer "What's going on in this picture?" based on what you "can gather from the image itself."

Sketching can be done with pen or pencil and a surface like paper. There are many applications for iOS and Android Tablets that are also great for sketching too. Last by not least there are a growing number of books about using sketching for visual notetaking, simple journals, or designing web applications. Try it, you might like it.

And we all hear numbers about this central bigness, too, nearly everywhere. There are now this many tweets per day, this many phones on Facebook, this many hours spent on email.

Rarely do we get to compare them, though. A new visualization on Designly.com stacks up what various website users produce in an average second. In small, monochromatic icons, you can compare the number of search terms googled per second, the number of posts Tumbl'd, the number of files Dropbox'd (box-dropped?)."
