Visualization Analysis & Design – A tutorial As you probably already know, I work in user experience in a complex data environment, so I feel that it’s important to know (at least superficially) about “Data Visualisation” (aka “vis”).  To this end, I recently attended a full day tutorial given by Prof. Tamara Munzner from the Department of Computer Science at the University of British Columbia, Canada.  I sketchnoted frantically, as there was a lot of ground to cover, and I used Tamara’s comprehensive slide sets…Continue Reading “A peek into the world of data visualisation with Prof. Munzner”

Sketchnoting Science Stuff Last week I attended a couple of interesting bioinformatics seminars: one about the burgeoning EBI RDF platform (www.ebi.ac.uk/rdf/platform) was described by Andy Jenkinson of EMBL-EBI…   …and the other from Dr Lee Harland of Connected Discovery, who gave a talk about the current status – and next steps – of the OpenPHACTS project.   Techie Target Audience Both talks were on a similar theme, namely how we can better link publicly-available biological data of different types, which spread across different databases.  The…Continue Reading “Latest bioinformatics sketchnotes…”
