Co-director of Google’s Big Picture team Fernanda Viégas describes how real-time data visualizations can allow users to engage with data in more intuitive and relatable ways. She presented two examples from her team: “Digital Attack Map,” which shows the origin and target countries of hackers attempting to cripple computer servers all over the world and “Wind Map,” a real-time forecast of winds displayed as dynamic stream lines that users can zoom into and explore.
This talk was part of the Visualization for Informal Science Education conference held at the Exploratorium, which explored themes of interpretation, narration, broadening participation, applying research to practice, collaboration, and the affordances of technology.
