Keep testing different models and learn something new from your dataset. There is a way of thinking that treats visualization as a magical process that prettifies the output, yet the only way we can make a meaningful graph is when we discover something meaningful during our research. People are relying on us to see the world. Out of everyone, we are the ones who need to have these interesting tests / models / questions / hypotheses at hand because if we don't know the color “red,” our story will never have “red” in it.

You’ll see why growth strategies focused at the country level may fall short in the future: with new hot spots emerging and household wealth surging in little-known urban centers, companies may have to adopt a much finer-grained approach to tap into the growth that lies ahead.

Visualization API | drupal.org

Thu, 06/06/2013 - 09:27 -- rprice

Visualization is a module for Drupal 7.x that provides a solid and easy accessible way to visualize data. It provides a theme hook that takes a data array and some options and will then render a chart in-place. It also provides a Views Display plugin so that users can easily visualize data retrieved through Views. The different charting libraries are pluggable through the CTools Plugin system; the module provides an implementation for the Google Visualization API and Highcharts.

Wed, 11/14/2012 - 17:47 -- rprice

This is the real political map of the United States of America after the presidential election. A fascinating view, much different from the maps you saw that night, which showed an artificial, binary divide. But these maps demonstrate that there is not such a huge gap between rural and urban America.

House Party! The 3-D Light Show You Can Control With an iPad or Wii | Wired Design | Wired.com

Mon, 07/23/2012 - 17:58 -- rprice

Floating — a new album by Danish electronic artist Rumpistol / Red Baron — design studio Futura Epsis 1 made something that was a bit of both.

Floating’s live show features a hypnotic 3-D display, controlled by an iPad app, that you can download for your home. The idea is that the show can be projected anywhere — from large arenas to living rooms. “We came up with the idea of a realtime 3-D sound-visualization as an installation for concerts and live-events as well as interactive installation for clubs,” says Andreas Rothaug, Head of Development Futura Epsis 1.
