  • Data Visualisation: A TasterTony Hirst Martin HawkseyDept of Communication and Systems, JISC CETISThe Open University@psychemedia/blog.ouseful.info @mhawksey/mashe.hawksey.info
  • <A QUICK NOTE>
  • “The most interestingvisualisationsof your data will be produced by someone else”
  • Presentation Graphics vs. Visual Analysis
  • Explanatory visualizationData visualizations that are used totransmit information or a point ofview from the designer to thereader. Explanatory visualizationstypically have a specific “story” orinformation that they are intendedto transmit.Exploratory visualizationData visualizations that are used bythe designer for self-informativepurposes to discoverpatterns, trends, or sub-problemsin a dataset. Exploratoryvisualizations typically don’t havean already-known story.
  • Data sketches [ Amanda Cox, New York Times ]
  • Infographics ≠(Exploratory) Visualisation
  • Macroscopes
  • Expressions of Structure
  • Hierarchical data and treemaps - medalsPivot tables
  • O’Reilly Annual Review of Book Sales
  • Network structure Node and edges All nodes the same sort of thing Edges may be directed or undirected Edges may be weighted Bipartite graph – two sorts of nodes Can collapse a bipartite graph to get a new view over the data
  • Dynamics
  • TrendsAutocorrelation
  • @mediaczar (Accession Plot)
  • “Literate visualisation” (writing diagrams)
  • ggplot( mydata,aes(x=xVal,y=yVal)) +geom_point() +facet_wrap(~mygroup)
