Features | Gephi, open source graph visualization software - 0 views

    Gephi is a tool for people that have to explore and understand graphs. Like Photoshop but for data, the user interacts with the representation, manipulate the structures, shapes and colors to reveal hidden properties. The goal is to help data analysts to make hypothesis, intuitively discover patterns, isolate structure singularities or faults during data sourcing. It is a complementary tool to traditional statistics, as visual thinking with interactive interfaces is now recognized to facilitate reasoning. This is a software for Exploratory Data Analysis, a paradigm appeared in the Visual Analytics field of research.

    Full Text: PDF
    Author: Erik Duval Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

    This paper will present the general goal of and inspiration for our work on learning analytics, that relies on attention metadata for visualization and recommendation. Through information visualization techniques, we can provide a dashboard for learners and teachers, so that they no longer need to "drive blind". Moreover, recommendation can help to deal with the "paradox of choice" and turn abundance from a problem into an asset for learning.

Some are colorful, some are simple, but all are informative and visually pleasing.

Eric Blue's Blog » Dataesthetics: The Power and Beauty of Data Visualization - 0 views

    One of my areas of interest that has grown over the last couple years has been data visualization. I'm a visually-oriented learner, and I look forward to seeing any techniques, illustrations, or technologies that:

    1) Allow people to assimilate information as fast as possible.

    2) Deepen understanding of knowledge by visually illustrating data in new and interesting ways. There is nothing like having an intellectual epiphony after looking at a picture for a few seconds (pictures can definitely be worth a thousand words).

    3) Present information in an aesthetically pleasing way. Or, in extreme examples, inspire a sense of awe!

    Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data - tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results. In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years.

    "A picture is worth a thousand words", if I had a penny for every time I heard that!! There is so much data in the world today that it has become impossible for us to analyze them with patience. Data as we perceive it, need not be boring, bland and cumbersome to remember. To make complex things seem simple, is Creativity and using pictures to represent data has been an age old method to analyze data in a fun way.
    From navigating the web in an entirely new dimension to understanding how the human brain works; from peeking into how Google has evolved to analyzing the inner working of the geeky mind, Infographics has completely changed the way we view content and visualize data.
