Data Visualization Articles & Videos
Brown Bag Talk: Arvind Satyanarayan presents, “Intelligence Augmentation through the Lens of Interactive Data Visualization”
Recent rapid advances in machine learning have brought new energy to the future of human + machine partnerships. In this talk, I will use three research threads on interactive data visualization to better understand the balance between automation and augmentation. First, I will describe how new specifications of visual and non-visual data representations allow us to reason about visual perception and cognition. Second, I will explore how visualization can be used to bridge human mental models and machine-learned representations. And, finally, I will discuss how data visualization already exhibits an epistemological crisis of truth—one that generative models threaten to further widen…
Places to Play: A perspective on playspace equity and early learning for Philadelphia’s youngest children
Creating this story map was as much a science as an art; to fully understand the state of play in Philadelphia we mapped playspace access and neighborhood priority for future early learning playspace investments using priority scores , explored access to playspaces for Early Care and Education providers through walkability models and surveys , and we worked to validate and contextualize our findings through community interviews. Finally, we suggest some strategies for how to move the work of playspace equity and access forward. We invite you to explore the tabs above or simply scroll down to explore our findings and the map…
Map rivers with sf and ggplot2 in R
In this tutorial, we will dive into the nuts and bolts of reconstructing a map of European rivers. We will use the Global River Classification (GloRiC). GloRiC applies supervised classification to global stream network from World Wildlife Fund’s HydroSHEDS to create over river reach types at the global level. The dataset includes over 35 million kilometers of rivers and streams classified into more than 8 individual river reaches. Impressive 😲!…

alt.VIS - A half-day workshop at IEEE VIS 2023
Not all work that moves the field forward fits into the model of a standard conference paper or conference talk. The memorability or intellectual impact of work is often inextricably linked to this non-conventional form, whether it is a reflection, provocation, critique, satire, artistic statement, or manifesto…We invite the submission of bold, provocative, unusual, unconventional, thought-provoking works related to visualization in the broad sense…
