ONR Distinguished Lecture Series:
"Visualizing Science and Technology"

Visualizing Science and TechnologyPresented by:
Professor Katy Börner
School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering
Indiana University, Bloomington, IN

In the information age, the ability to read and make data visualizations is as important as the ability to read and write. This talk explains and exemplifies the power of data visualizations not only to help locate us in physical space but also to help us understand the extent and structure of our collective scientific knowledge, to identify bursts of activity, pathways of ideas and products, or emerging areas of research and innovation. It introduces a theoretical visualization framework meant to empower anyone to systematically render data into insights together with tools that support temporal, geospatial, topical, and network analyses and visualizations. Materials from the Information Visualization MOOC (http://ivmooc.cns.iu.edu) and science maps from the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit (http://scimaps.org) will be used to illustrate key concepts and to inspire participants to visualize their very own data.
