Data visualisations are graphics used to represent information. They allow an exploration and understanding of data that would be impossible to achieve with just a table full of numbers.
The sunshine or raincloud icons in a weather report are a basic kind of visualisation. A line graph showing the number of visitors to a website, or a ‘heatmap’ of activity on a country map are other kinds. But how might we visualise something as open as ‘social impact’? And how can we create visualisations that draw the user within, using the interactivity and graphics capabilities of the modern web browser?
The growing field of data visualisation brings together a wide range of disciplines: art, psychology, mathematics, user experience and software engineering. It’s potent and invigorating stuff!
