Since my childhood, even some of my friends who were good in math were afraid of it or pretending to be afraid of.
Because maths are less likely to be understood by the majority of a class. Moreover, the fact that student success in a class is related to its grades, only amplifies the stress and fear of not understanding maths which prevents most people not striving to welcome it. It may sound sad but it occurs that we just tend to ignore “ difficult stuff” because todays societies just keeps us serving our needs in our hands. Even when…
A journey into Data visualization
Files store values. Values are our data. A collection of data is information. Reading raw data stored in a file is possible. But interpreting raw data is impossible by reading it only. That is why we visualize them in an interpretable way.
“The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.” -John Tukey
Today, we will drill down into Data visualization.
From a historical perspective, we can say data visualization existed since a long time. In fact  in 1644, Michael Florent Van Langren, a…
Get a better understanding of what is context in industrial data visualization
Understanding context in dashboarding is essential and sets you on the path to success when it comes to creating visual content .
Today, we will cover this important topic in our journey towards data visualization.
Actually, data is visualized since a long time if we don’t consider technologies used for it nowadays. In fact, Physical artefacts such as Mesopotamian clay tokens (5500 BC !), Inca quipus (2600 BC !) and Marshall Islands stick charts (n.d.) can also be considered as visualizing quantitative information .
Visualize industrial information flows through Sankey diagrams
When working with data, flows or any set of processes related to industrial systems, diagrams come in to play and provide global view on the information we focus. Without them, identifying problems may become pretty hard.
Talking about diagrams, Sankey diagrams in industrial ecology are helpful in identifying inefficiencies, visualizing energy balance, material flows and drawing attention to the largest flows of the diagram. So today, we are going to explore this helpful diagram by rolling briefly back in its history. …
Everything in life is and should be open to discussion. Sooner or later the truth will be discussed.
As for me, Truth is present in two areas: In science and in speaking.
History shows us that science has always been the art of “Knowing”, showing us the truth of things present everywhere excluding beliefs and intentions. To my knowledge, I dont remember any scientific formula neither research that demonstrates what is beliefs and intentions. Yet nothing proved either that science cant demonstrate these notions.
I will take into consideration every person having the capacity of thinking, thus forming toughts. My…
