From the late 1670's comes a great "strip" map by John Ogilby. Here, to get from Presteigne to Carmathen, in Wales it's a practical method to keep one on the correct route to a destination, reference landmarks & stay on the route.
It's interesting that when automobiles became popular, early roads atlases used this same route method to get drivers to their next destination, by identifying landmarks and keeping them on a solitary path.

58,444 dead or missing human beings have been documented by the Missing Migrants Project of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) since 2014 (latest incident: Sep 5th 2023).
The actual number is likely much higher.
Here's a #Datavisualization I made of that horrendous number.

How do wars end? Not always with a decisive victory. My colleagues Adina Renner, Karin Wenger and Nicolas Staub at #nzz had a look at a database of over 500 wars since 1946, and visualised the results – and took a guess at what it could mean for the Ukraine.

I specialize in Data Art, focusing on the intricate and compelling visualization of complex datasets.
My work leverages advanced algorithms, artistic principles, and machine learning techniques to transcend traditional forms of data representation.
For collaborations or inquiries, feel free to DM. Excited to engage with this community.
For those interested in such things, here is a connoisseurs map of "European" current rail-electrification based on @openstreetmap tagged data
Electrified track OLE is red, third- and fourth-rail DC in green and brown, unelectrified in black
Colours in the spirit of the FizzyKnitting @25kV
For those interested in such things, here is a map of "European" current rail-electrification based on @openstreetmap tagged data
Electrified track is red, all other track in black
True connoisseurs of the art please note, this does not make a distinction between voltage, frequency, and type (OLE/third-rail/fourth-rail)
What's the minimum number of clicks needed to go from page A to page B?
Shortest Path Length
What pages B and C, D and F, ... ?
What about all pairs of pages in the whole site?
I'm working on a new chart to evaluate this. The image shows counts for a few websites, and how they're distributed.
Does this make sense?
How would you improve it?

Ever wondered how to compare the distributions of two variables simultaneously? Look no further! In this post, we'll dive into the world of dual-variable histograms using R, a go-to language for data analysis and visualization.
Ready to embark on your own dual-variable histogram journey? The key to effective data visualization is in your hands. 🚀
Some updates to the link analysis app:
🔵 Summary stats added (number of URLs, links, & density*)
🔵 Histograms showing the distribution of the number of links per page (in, out, all)
🔵 Renamed columns, changing "degrees" to "links"
*Density: Zero density means there are no pages linking to each other on the site. A density of one, means all pages link to all pages.

Did you know that the top 1% own more than 1/3 of Germany’s wealth? Here's a #DataVisualization of wealth distribution in Germany I made.
About 2/3 of all individual net worth is concentrated in the hands of the top 10%. The bottom half as a whole own little more than 1%.
Data is from 2019. The calculations are by @DIW_Berlin

Wow, I just realized that it's been one year since I published my first #DataVisualization project - Covid Waves. It was an animated map showing how the novel Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 spread through Europe.
It has been an intense year and I have learned so much since then.

3 Simple Tips to Avoid Overplotting in R!
This is one of the first video clips that was ever published on Statistics Globe! :) It would be amazing if you could let me know your feedback so that I can incorporate it in future videos. This video explains how to avoid overplotting in R programming using different functions and arguments of the ggplot2 library. Which topics would you like to see next?
Introducing the new #KNIME Reporting (Labs) extension! 🚀 Now you can effortlessly generate static PDF reports with composite visualizations. No need to learn anything new, use what you already know and enable report output in the layout settings. Download the extension and get creative with your reports. 📊📈 https://bit.ly/44ZgdKx

It is very important to communicate scientific findings about global change in appealing ways.
Our usual habit of just publishing in b/w bar graphs probably didn't help to make the wider society aware of the extent of the situation.
Not exactly the interactions of factors you asked for, but can't resist mentioning this figure of the World Resource Institute, comparing the consequences of a 1.5 vs 2° C world.
@s4f <- anyone has other good examples for the visualization of global change?

I'm thrilled my infographic "101 Derivatives of French Mother Sauces" made the longlist for the category "Arts, Entertainment & Culture" in the 2023 Information Is Beautiful Awards! I don't think it will make the shortlist as it's pretty competitive, we're competing against individuals, teams, studios and even agencies from orgs like Reuters, USA Today, MIT, and Harvard Engineering.

We will be working outside of the library box diving in to the very basic R functions toward the path of mastering the R programming language for data analysis.
How to design a useful (and fun!) color key for your data visualization - Datawrapper Blog
Visualisation annotations are useful for directing readers towards insights and unusual data points. And yet there aren’t a lot of examples of how to make them programmatically for changing, interactive visualisations.
So I wrote about the approach I cobbled together for my recent snakes vis, which I hope ends up being useful to someone else:

For a simple method to morph SVG paths into circles using D3, I wrote a little notebook: https://observablehq.com/@didoesdigital/morphing-shapes-into-circles-with-d3
1. Add points to your circle to match the same number of points in your other shape’s path
2. Reverse the path order
3. Translate the outer group by the circle radius
This is beautiful!

Updating my #introduction again. I'm loving the #queer and particularly the #trans community here, so I'm changing this account to Davie Dean to better show that side of me. I'm proudly #trans, #nonbinary and #bigender. On here my pronouns are she/her, but I also enjoy being David and he/him most of the time elsewhere. :transgender_flag: :enby: :flag_bigender:
In non #gender stuff, I'm a #geospatial data enthusiast with a passion for #OpenStreetMap and #indigenous mapping. Love #renovating my caravan and house on the side. I'm getting deeper into #geospatial #datascience and #datavisualization. Proudly based on #Ainawan land in #Armidale, NSW.

„There Is a Digital Art History“
Great new publication by @zentralwerkstatt et al. delves into the transformative potential of large-scale vision models, epistemic implications and methodological shifts.
To better gauge people’s understanding of data visualizations, it’s essential to define the concepts of numeracy and data literacy.
I'm delighted to be presenting *two papers* and *two artworks* at #IEEEVIS in Melbourne Australia this October! 🐨

I'm stoked to share my story of snake shenanigans with fun facts, silly animations, and a few happy snaps (opt in!)
Made with #d3js, scrollama, and laughs.
Currently taking a #DataVisualization course for #Blind folks, and all I can say is that #VSCode is a prime example of why engineers should never be trusted to build good usable apps. No usability nor good design considerations at all, just a mish-mash of awful choices that aren't using common nor accepted #Accessible design patterns over on MacOS. Desktop apps aren't and shouldn't be websites and should take full advantage of what AppKit or what the native OS offers you in terms of controls.
The map of the internet that I made is now available on Displate. This map maps out internet exchanges and undersea fiber optic cables.If you think it's cool enough to put on your wall it's available here:

Here's a map of all submarine fiber optic cables and internet exchanges around the world. This time, I didn't draw the lines for countries and I think this looks amazing.

During lunch I was looking at data.europa.eu and found how much Irish government collected in Environmental taxes.
To me the most surprising thing was that households paid a lot more than businesses.
There's more detailed break down in ETA4 file and three more CSVs, so I'll have fun next couple of evenings.
In his upcoming book, journalist and designer @albertocairo explores the idea of ‘#DataVisualization as language’, one with many different dialects – statistical, journalistic, artistic, and so on. These dialects are not mutually exclusive, he says. So, what might they learn from each other?
