Several inspirations have explored visual representations. What other representations can we think of?
I have been so excited to see so many other OpenIdeators express their love for visualizations that I thought I'd try to bring them together! I was also inspired largely by
Sarah's synthesis of inspirations--the idea of bringing together ideas in an organized way is nothing short of fantastic! I bet we could do that for just about any topic.
The brain works better when information is presented visually (viz., "spatial cognition"), so it's no wonder we all have looked into ways to visualize information. The represented information has included the challenges themselves, other inspirations in the challenge, and other initiatives out there.
* Social networks:
Here are some extra ideas:
* Plots and charts like in Excel
that combine multiple types of visualizations
(I'll update this inspiration with an actual visualization later, which I think might help to classify these visualizations along the axes of 1. the information being presented and its reason, and 2. the type of visualization)
What other kinds can we think of? What visual inspirations have I forgotten to link to?
