TitleVisualization: An Essential Tool for Scientific Discovery and Storytelling
Advanced computing and imaging/sensing technologies enable scientists to
study complex phenomena at unprecedented precision, resulting in an
explosive growth of data. The size of the collected information about the
Internet and mobile device users is expected to be even greater, a daunting
challenge we must address in order to make sense and maximize utilization
of all the available information. Visualization transforms large quantities of,
often multiple-dimensional, data into graphical representations that exploit
the high-bandwidth channel of the human visual system, leveraging the
brain's remarkable ability to detect patterns and draw inferences. It has thus
become an indispensable tool in many areas of study involving large,
complex data. I will present several effective visualization designs as either
an exploratory or explanatory tool for large data found in real-world
applications with a focus on fusion science, marine science, and network
science data.
