Edge Catalyst Colleen Morgan presents a whole host of fabulous data visualisations and mashups to get you excited and inspired for National Library Hack competition. Data visualisations are a way of making complex data sets meaningful. They can be beautiful, insightful, informative, entertaining, digital or physical and can reveal relationships you may never of thought of, like that most Facebook breakups happen just before the weekend! Colleen will also highlight the data sets that have been made available by the State Library of Queensland and we will all throw around some data visualisation ideas.
Some resources to whet your data whistle: http://infosthetics.com/ and http://www.visualcomplexity.com/vc/
