Information Visualization


Information visualization are branches of computer graphics and user interface which are concerned with the presentation of interactive or animated digital images to users to understand data. For example, scientists interpret potentially huge quantities of laboratory or simulation data or the results from sensors out in the field to aid reasoning, hypothesis building and cognition. The field of data mining offers many abstract visualizations related to these visualization types. They are active research areas, drawing on theory in information graphics, computer graphics, human-computer interaction and cognitive science

Rommel, That imiga is very interesting. Can you tell us a bit what it is and how it works?

I have tried to find more information about the image. However, I cannot find it again.

I think this image is a mapping model of information, data, target and representation. This model let users easy to mine the data from huge quantities of data, presentation of interactive or animated digital images make users to understand data.

For the Photostory, I think I have to improve it before use it in lesson. I have written a reflection about it.
