Sure, we all love good infographics, but maybe you also want to rage a bit about graphics that make no sense. WTF Visualizations is here to help.

So apparently Google has a thing where you can draw a line on the graph, and it will find search terms that match the level of interest-vs-time for the line you drew:

I wanted to share my playing around with graphing Dreamwidth users' "circles".

  • The graph consists of nodes (the circles with the journals names on them) and edges (the lines between the nodes).
  • A line between two nodes means that those two users have a mutual relationship. That means they subscribe to each other, give each other access, or both.
  • The size of the node indicates how many mutual relationships that user has in total--the more, the bigger the node.
  • The color of the node indicates how many relative mutual relationships that user has with you--the darker the red, the more connections you two share.
  • Note that you don't show up in the graphs, since you are connected to everybody
  • If you have a relationship with a user but they don't have any relationships with anybody else you're connected to, they don't show up either (I call them "singlets").

Example time! )

Flowing Data has beautiful graphs and visualizations. I particularly like the "music of the planets" one.

From the site:

"Kailie Parrish, student of fine arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art, has published the results from a study about her dreams. The collected data is summarized in a lovely designed data visualization.

I kept a log of my dreams for 2.5 months, then categorized them by type, mood, cause, etc. through color and lines. I also provided a dream catalog with short, descriptive titles. The image created by the intersecting lines and circular calendar is representational of a dream catcher."

Look at it, it's really a nice graph.

I use R a lot in making graphs, although not recently, and today I'm making some graphs for work, ran across this website again trying to figure out some things, and decided to share it:

You can see possibilities of the kinds of graphs you can make in R here:

Although that simple introduction will probably not make you proficient enough to do many of those!

Heya :)

You probably all know this, but ... well, maybe not.
Indexed is kind of a webcomic, yet it's not a comic. Every day (?) Jessica Hagy posts a note card with some sort or clever graph on it, showing the world relationships between things it probably hasn't seen in this light until now.

I love my daily dose of indexed and maybe you like it, too :)

On LJ there is a feed, I don't know about DW ...

Here is a meta resource linking to 20 useful visualization libraries/programs/resources. I have some plans for graphing certain things, and I am hoping some of the things listed could come in handy to me.

Graphs exploring the music of the Beatles, based on sales statistics, biographies, recording session notes, sheet music, and raw audio readings.

A whole site called Charting the Beatles is currently in progress.
