The Syntax of a New Language (poster)

Posted: September 29th, 2011 | Author: Manuel Lima | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

In chapter five of Visual Complexity: Mapping Patterns of Information, entitled The Syntax of a New Language, I expose 15 visual methods for network visualization spread across 60 pages and 103 images. This chapter has been the result of several years of research and attentive review of more than 750 projects featured in VisualComplexity.com.

As stated in the intro paragraph of the chapter: “Despite this rich graphical diversity, many projects tend to follow noticeable trends and common principles, which in turn result in a type of emergent taxonomy. This embryonic and evolving taxonomy provides a portrait of the current state of the practice and reveals the initial building blocks shaping a new visual language.”
