“VisualComplexity.com intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project’s main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web. I truly hope this space can inspire, motivate and enlighten any person doing research on this field.”
I may have posted a link to this site before…either way, it’s worth repeating.
The Visual Complexity website features map of complex systems.
The content, graphs and maps remind us that information may be re-interpreted, re-formed, re-presented, re-understood.
I have been privately calling this dynamic transformation “multinformation” to underscore that information may be dynamically transformed into/from:
- (Note: transformation may not transfer “emergent” dynamics.)
What’s the value of these images?
- We may be looking at the future of interfaces. The future of the web.
- Findability will be a complex challenge. I think this is one of the reasons why the fields of Interaction Design and Information Architecture will flourish in the future.
- Teachers can use multinformation to help your students re-understand information
- This is a tool for multispective analysis
