Check out some Top projects about Data Visualisation.
The U.S. Census Bureau goes far beyond computing and collecting data on aspects of the American population. The annual survey on the North-American community also includes information on demographic aspects—such as average incomes, education, employment and economy—which will be used in other surveys on business environments. This material is available on a data visualisation platform that allows the user to download contents.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) stores information on different countries. With the help of Moritz Stefaner—a specialist in data visualisation and interface design—they have organised all this information to promote an index for the measurement of well-being as an additional index, going beyond the GDP and all economical statistics. After this action, the Better Life Initiative was created allowing users to compare well-being indexes in distinct countries—based on 11 topics which have been identified by the OECD as being essential for people’s quality of life. In the case of this specific information on well-being, the higher the index, the taller the flower’s stem. You must check it!
A Design and Technology Office in San Francisco specialized in the development of data and visualisation maps created videos to illustrate the effects of picture sharing through Facebook. The company analysed the viralisation of three different images posted by the actor of the Star-Trek series, George Takei, for a period of three months. The final product consisted of a video with an analysis based on data visualisation—in which each item has anumber of branches that spread and split as time goes by. The user is able to follow the image’s viralisation process through these branches that boom with people’s online activity.
The “history maps” at ESRI—a geographic information system and mapping software development company—were created to be more than simple interactive maps. The ESRI data visualization platform allows the user to look for maps containing the information they need, especially in what concerns recent events.
This project uses data collected by Nokia in four cities—San Francisco. New York, London and Berlin—to create navigable 3D maps. The user may navigate, link and incorporate these maps to specific locations, with different zoom levels, and use the Cytytracking tool. It is possible to play with different points of view and to explore the urban look of these cities in a project characterized by its aesthetic sense.
