4 Same information - different format... World GDP

5 Digital camera CCD (charge-coupled device) and CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensors convert light into electrons. The next step is to read the value (accumulated charge) of each cell in the image. In a CCD device, the charge is actually transported across the chip and read at one corner of the array. An analog-to-digital converter turns each pixel's value into a digital value.

6 Epistemology (knowledge) The science and philosophy of knowledge  from Greek ἐ πιστήμη – “episteme-” = knowledge, science  λόγος, “logos” = a subject, topic of discourse, area of study

7 Major concepts in Epistemology Constructivism o Building blocks Assimilation o Slot in beside Accomodation o Move stuff over Associationism o Connect things together

8 Historic Visualization Photograph: Sissie Brimberg/National Lascaux, Dordoyne, France (c.13,000 years ago).

9 Hieroglyphics

10 Modern Visualisation 20th Century

11 London Underground - abstract map Harry Beck

13 Data Visualisation s/home

14 World's Busiest Airlines by Passengers 2006

15 Air traffic over North America Aaron Koblin

16 Big Mac Carbon Footprint – energy cost ($1)

17 Total Alcohol Consumption by Country

18 Meat is Murder, The Smiths (1985)

19 Retail Music Revenue by Country in 2007

20 Technical Visualisations UML Diagramming

21

22 Large Graphs – 10,000 nodes

23 Mind Maps

24 Concept Maps (2)

25 Knowledge/Topic Maps Topic Maps combine all the preceding concepts: indexes, hyperlinking, visualization mapping, findability, etc.

26 Hyperlinking technology-assisted mapping Dr. Vannevar Bush o “Memex” (1945) Ted Nelson o “Project Xanadu” (1963) o "hypertext" 

27 Next lecture... Mind Maps

28 Purpose of Lecture... To explain and illustrate that imagery (visualisation) makes it much easier for the human brain to absorb and remember information. o “Iconic learning” Lay groundwork for us to try out some of these techniques in our study and learning Also, to touch on some key concepts we will be returning to in future lectures for your work
