Design Indaba as a Good Resource for Data Visualization
I came across the website Indaba Design (http://www.designindaba.com), a website/blog showcasing hundreds of interesting design. The things that interest me most about this website are approaches people proposed to visualize complex data and novel ideas to represent data in more aesthetic way.
Since I’m now working on functional MRI (fMRI) for brain image, I’m interested in how we can visualize time series of 3D brain fMRI data, which you can think of as 3D video of brain. As of now, I found that visualize such data on monitor is not very convenient, and “Shadowless“, an interesting work of Makoto Tojiki, sparks me some ideas to present the 4D video.
Another favorite work is the integrated public transportation map by Henning and Williams, where the complex routes are represented in much simpler and more aesthetic way.
