My topic: Visual analytics

08 Nov

My task is to study existing approaches and solutions (tools) regarding data visualization, visual analytics and afterwards create a prototype (mockup) applying knowledge to the topics of our project.

Some subtopics and directions of study:

  • visualization of cooperation networks
  • spreading of ideas (flow visualization)
  • geospatial network visualization
  • time factor visualization
  • plagiarism visualization
  • diagrammatic reasoning
  • geospatial visualization + data mining

So far I’ve partly studied the book “Mastering the Information Age – Solving Problems with Visual Analytics”, papers: Muse: Visualizing the origins and connections of institutions based on co-authorship of publications, Interactive Exploration of Geospatial Network Visualization.

Tools and resources that I find interesting:

  • Gephi  – an open source tool for graph visualization
  • OECD – Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. They gather and present data about socio-economical and political situation in different countries.
  • Visual complexity – original ways of visualizing various data.
