In the information age, the ability to read and make data visualizations is as important as the ability to read and write. This talk introduces a theoretical data visualization framework (DVL) meant to empower anyone to systematically render data into insights using temporal, geospatial, topical, and network analyses and visualizations. Exemplarily, the DVL is applied to
- Map science and technology, see interactive data visualizations from the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit (http://scimaps.org) and recent PNAS special issue on Modelling and Visualizing Science and Technology Developments (https://www.pnas.org/modeling).
- Design reference systems and user interfaces within the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program (HuBMAP) (https://commonfund.nih.gov/hubmap) that support the exploration and communication of single-cell data—from the subcellular to the whole-body level.
- Teach Visual Analytics (https://visanalytics.cns.iu.edu) to students around the globe.
