I am surveying tools for interactive web information visualization, which is not too technical for class project but still feasible enough to be applied to practical project.
I guess Flex or Flare would not be compatible anymore alogn with the declination of Flash ActionScript (is this correct...?). Then Processing would be a reasonable tool to start information visualization with? What do you think a good interactive visualization tool that can be applied to senior design course project with technical compatibility as well as design flexibility?
I would like to get some input and feedback from anyone who has had professional experience using iRise, a prototyping and visualization tool. I would especially love to hear feedback in response to the following questions:
I know there has been much discussion about data visualization here,
but I ran into a need this week to represent not the data, but rather
what makes up the data. I.e., data point combinations or collections
of processes that produce the information that we are looking at.
The goal being to help understand which data is truly meaningful in
the context of discussion and for decision-making.
Does anyone have any tips or examples to point to?
Are there any social networking sites that allow you to dynamically
visualize your social networks? Are there any that allow you to "tag" your
ties to all the people on your social network graph? The research and
ability is out there - just look at visualcomplexity.com, but my question is
- why can't I navigate through my social networks on LinkedIn, Facebook,
Twitter, Gather, or anywhere else like I can navigate words in
