Shared Information Visualization
IBM recently announced a new project called Many Eyes.
According to their website:
Many Eyes is a bet on the power of human visual intelligence to find patterns. Our goal is to “democratize” visualization and to enable a new social kind of data analysis.
In a nutshell, Many Eyes brings information visualization to the masses. This site allows users to share and access existing data sets. And, visualize these data sources using a variety of techniques: treemaps, geographic maps, charts, and network diagrams.
This project is worth keeping an eye on!
