  • OU Statistics Conference, May 18th, 2011For many people, the ability to visualise data is limited to generating chart types provided by spreadsheet applications and statistical software tools, or delving into the intricacies of scientific programming libraries. However, the rapid growth in the publication of public data sets on the one hand, and the development of powerful graphics generating libraries capable of running in web browsers as well as in desktop applications on the other, has resulted in the proliferation of tools supporting interactive visual data exploration and analysis. The growth in "data journalism" has also spurred news media organisation such as the New York Times to invest in the development of online interactive data exploration tools.In this presentation, I shall review some of the available tools and libraries, including the open source Gephi application (a graphical network analysis package) and IBM's Many Eyes suite of interactive charts, and demonstrate how they can be used to support interactive exploration of data sets without the requirement of programming knowledge. If time allows, the presentation will also cover the rise in visual "data cleansing" applications such as Google Refine and the Stanford Visualisation Lab's Data Wrangler tool.

  • Google Fusion Tables also allows the “typing” of data contained within columns. One very useful type is a location type. By declaring location type columns, Google Fusion Tables will try to geoode your data fro you, based on that location information. So what does that mean?
