I came across this interesting website/article the other day that displayed 50 Great Examples of Data Visualization:
Data Visualization seems to be an up and coming area, as are most data related areas, because the amount of the data in the world is only increase. Data Visualization in specific interests me because it is an important aspect of making data accessible to everyone. While the raw numbers of both data and data analysis may be available to everyone, it is not always understandable. Visualizing the data is a way to help make it understandable. It is almost like a way of connecting those more number-oriented people with the more visual-oriented people.
The site above gives many great examples. One of my favorites is this visualization of worldwide tweeting. I have to make sure I don’t try to use it until my finals are over. Do you have any great examples of data visualization or any favorites from this site?
