Network of data visualization references by Nathan Yau.
From the post:
Developer Santiago Ortiz places Delicious tags for visualization references in a discovery context. There are two views. The first is a network view with tags and resources as nodes. A fisheye effect is used to zoom in on nodes and make the more readable. Mouse over a tag, and the labels for related resources get bigger, and likewise, mouse over a resource, and the related tags get bigger.
The second view lets you compare resources. In the network view, select two ore more resources, and then click on the bottom button to compare the selected.
On the left hand side, top, you will see:
I had to select one of those before getting the option to switch to the second view.
The graph view seems to move too quickly but that may just be me.
I am sure there is a “big data” view of visualization but I find this more limited view quite useful.
As a matter of fact, I suspect finding sub-communities that share semantics is going to be more of a growth area than “big data.” To be sure, you may start with “big data” but you will quickly boil it down to “small data” that is both useful and relevant to your user community.
Small enough for machine-assisted curation no doubt. Where the curation is the value-add resulting in a product.
