[Video] Drawing Dynamic Data Visualizations - Compelling Approach (Brett Victor / Stanford U)

June 17, 2013 Written by 

Throughout the history of science, diagrams and graphs have been essential thinking tools.  In the past, such visualizations were drawn with pen on paper, and could embrace the directness, freedom, and expressiveness of hand drawing.  Most modern visualizations are programmed instead, where a single description can dynamically generate a unique picture for any dataset. This talk presents a tool for drawing dynamic pictures -- creating data-driven visualizations, like D3, but via direct manipulation of the picture itself, like Illustrator.

Today's tools offer the benefits of one or the other -- either directness or dynamics -- but not both. Photoshop and Illustrator allow direct-manipulation drawing of static pictures.  D3, R, and Processing allow indirect-manipulation coding of dynamic pictures.

Recorded at the Stanford HCI seminar on February 1, 2013. For more information, see: worrydream.com/DrawingDynamicVisualizationsTalkAddendum
