Smashing Magazine's Best of July links — holy freakin' moly
« on: August 14, 2007, 07:07:09 AM »
Here's a Best of July list you won't find just anywhere by Smashing Magazine, centered primarily around graphics, web design, and cool web stuff. This article alone on Data Visualization Approaches is enough to get you started.

Wow! Thanks for posting about this, Zaine. I think my morning schedule has just been borked!

Holy crap! Zaine you gorgeous beast! I should have clicked on your data visualization link first - I've been grappling with figuring out how to visualize my PhD data for about three days and you've just dropped a wonderful overview into my lap  :-*

Darwin, I guess you're already familliar with Edward Tufte's work on data visualization, etc?
A few ref. :
- Images and quantities, evidence and narrative
- The visual display of quantitative information
- Envisioning information

Very interesting stuff I'll be using (partly...) for my thesis.

Er, no. Thanks for the pointer! Right off to Google Edward Tufte now...

Wow! What an interesting way to present data. Too bad a 3D bar chart is too complex for people. The stuff you find on the internet never ceases to amaze me Zaine. Thanks for your numerous contributions.
