Visualization is the act of creating pictographic or other visual cues that typically allow a viewer to physically look upon and analyze the relationships between different objects.


Visualization is a common need in many fields, ranging from Information Technology to Statistics, Engineering to Architecture, Biology to Astrophysics and Sociology to Computer Hardware/Software Design, among others.


Visualization Types

TreeMaps

Perception Map

Relationship Map

InfoGraphic

An InfoGraphic is a visualization tool used for summarizing large amounts of data and information into a small, concise, yet easily readable, translatable and understandable graphical representation. There are modern-day software packages available for creating InfoGraphics, though many of the best infographics are drawn by hand, whether electronically, on paper or created via another medium. Common infographics are bar-charts, pie-charts, global maps, universal maps, pictures of a specific locale or setting with data overlays, etc.

Projects

Show Us A Better Way

Show Us a Better Way is a UK government-funded project challenging the public to "Tell us what you'd build with public information and we could help fund your idea!"

code_swarm

code_swarm is one of the leading projects for open visualization libraries:

VisualComplexity

  • VisualComplexity Project (a portal/collection of different visualization projects from all over the world): http://visualcomplexity.com

SIMILE

SIMILE is focused on developing robust, open source tools that empower users to access, manage, visualize and reuse digital assets.

NetGrok

Google Visualization

Asterisq

Gephi

Processing

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.
