Design Information Technology Trend Watching

Watch Manuel Lima’s “Visual Complexity and Mapping Complex Networks” talk at IxDA | Interaction ‘09 conference

In this talk, Manuel Lima leverages the existing pool of knowledge from Visual Complexity (VC ) to convey a current portrait of network visualization. It illustrates some of its current trends and representation methods, and explore the reasons behind the recent outburst. It highlights some seminal executions and finalize with the exaltation of interactivity as the key measure of cognition in Information Visualization, by presenting a series of interaction design principles for exploring complex networks […]

Information Visualization: Visual Complexity — a project derived of an extensive research on the visualization of complex networks, which culminated with Manuel Lima thesis project Blogviz: Mapping the dynamics of information diffusion in Blogspace — intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project’s main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web […]
