Pre-recorded lecture for today is posted. I'll be finishing the second coding lecture this afternoon.
Compare and contrast these two examples of the same dataset. What trends/insights do they both convey well? What does one highlight better than the other? Which is more usable? What places might lead to mistakes/misunderstandings?>
Example 0: Les Miserables force-directed graph
Example 1: Les Miserables adjacency matrix (be sure to use the pull-down menu to re-sort)
We will critique each of the following examples individually. As usual: In what ways are the visualizations effective? How are they ineffective? If you had to make one change to improve them, what would it be?
Example 2: @mentions and retweet network by Electome (thanks Sophia)
Example 3: Marvel Character Map (thanks Theresa!)
Example 4: Interactive map of global trade
