A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue

A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
If you've ever struggled with what visualization to create to best show the data you have, The Data Visualization Catalogue might provide just the help you
Robin Good's insight:



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.

Rappresentare: raccontare la realtà in modo tale da attrarre in modo efficace l'attenzione del nostro interlocutore/lettore. In una società iperconnessa e dialogica, fondamentale competenza.

Cori Zuppo's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:21 AM

The Data Visualization Catalogue is a powerful tool to guide selection of data visualization methodologies. I am looking forward to incorporating this resource into my courses wherever possible.

A Curated Collection of Quality Clipart and Illustrations: ClipArt ETC

A Curated Collection of Quality Clipart and Illustrations: ClipArt ETC | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:


ClipArt ETC is a wonderful collection of quality educational clipart providing simple illustrations, icons and drawings in a multitude of areas, from history, to business, art, literature, music and sports.


A project of the Florida Center for Instructional Technology of University of South Florida), ClipArt ETC has curated over 65,000 images and organized, categorized each one of them, while providing descriptions and multiple file formats in which to download them.


I must say they really did a wonderful job. The images are great, the quality is excellent, the organization of the catalog is well done and easy to navigate.


From the official site: "Every item comes with a choice of image size and format as well as complete source information for proper citations in school projects.


No advertisement-filled pages with pop-up windows or inappropriate links here.


A friendly license allows teachers and students to use up to 50 educational clipart items in a single, non-commercial project without further permission."


The ClipArt ETC resource was designed and intended for educational projects but due to the many commercial requests it has received it now offers a "commercial" shopping cart to purchase any of its images for commercial applications. More info here: http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/info/license
