Anatomy of Complex Data Visualizations

Or log in to access your purchased courses

I’m always trying to unite complexity and beauty in ways that push traditional data visualization boundaries. Finding the point at which a data visualization becomes a piece of data art excites me and it’s safe to say I’m somewhat obsessed with finding this boundary.

In this course, I walk through, in detail, the various layers and design decisions that go into creating several of my award-winning pieces of data art. These pieces have been showcased at some of the nation’s hottest co-working spaces and have received rave reviews from exhibit attendees, both on and offline. This class will show how I go about constructing visual correlation, how I experiment with the numerous visual subtleties that make up a compelling data visualization, and how I make use of various planes to visualize up to 10 variables at once.

As with all my courses, this course is dynamic, meaning the syllabus will grow as my applicable knowledge and experience grows. Purchasing this course gives you lifetime access to all current and future lessons.

Lessons

Visualizing 1,304 Orbiting Satellites: Phase 1

Length: 7 minutesComplexity: Standard

Phase 1 of building the satellite data art I created for my shop and public exhibition. I walk you through my process for creating compelling data art, beginning in Phase 1, the initial considerations for visualizing the 1,304 satellites orbiting the earth at the end of 2015.

Visualizing 1,304 Satellites in Orbit: Phase 2

Length: 2 minutesComplexity: Standard

Phase 2 of building the satellite data art I created for my shop and public exhibition. I continue to walk you through my process for creating compelling data art, with Phase 2 focusing on keeping both the micro and macro views in consideration.

Visualizing 1,304 Satellites in Orbit: Phase 3

Length: 5 minutesComplexity: Standard

Phase 3 of building the satellite data art I created for my shop and public exhibition. I continue to walk you through my process for creating compelling data art, with Phase 3 beginning to explore different visual aesthetics, including beginning to plan for how all the elements are beginning to interact with each other.

Visualizing 1,304 Satellites in Orbit: Phase 4

Length: 3 minutesComplexity: Standard

Phase 4 of building the satellite data art I created for my shop and public exhibition. I continue to walk you through my process for creating compelling data art, with Phase 4 beginning to consider how to differentiate between graphical elements that represent data.

Visualizing 1,304 Satellites in Orbit: Phase 5

Length: 5 minutesComplexity: Standard

Phase 5 of building the satellite data art I created for my shop and public exhibition. Phase 5 begins to add specific detail and unique design elements to different sets of data, in this particular instance, the grouping of satellites by date launched.
