Visualization

This past week in class, the conversation turned to information that is "born digital" and how it can be analyzed and used.  I attended New York Data Week last October, so my mind quickly thought of the visualizations that I saw.  Yes, when you get data into digital form - whether it is born digital or digitized - you can then analyze and display the information.  If you have not viewed any visualizations of large/massive data sets, take a look at these.
