It is incredible how maps can capture so much of the real world and depict so many places. From big cities to small towns, maps use characteristics such as topography, hydrography, industry, and recreation to tell the story of a place." See on blog.education.nationalgeographic.com

[Video] Visualizing The Hidden Cosmos | The Making Of “Dark Universe” See on Scoop.it - Visualization Literacy An in-depth look at how scientists are visualizing dark matter. Though the Hayden Planetarium has been bringing visitors on visual voyages for years, its most recent space show celebrates both the known and unknown corners of life—from the matter that surrounds us to the anti-matter, or dark matter (matter that doesn’t emit or absorb light, yet still has a gravitational force), which we’re just beginning to understand. The program brings viewers from 3D-renderings of space crafts and the Milky Way, all the way into space 100 million light years away—the place where the Hubble Telescope first noticed that the universe is expanding due to dark matter. Dark Universe then offers viewers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dive into the dark energy responsible for the cosmic growth of everything. To see inside this (literally) universe-expanding work of art and science, The Creators Project took a look behind-the-scenes of Dark Universe, and interviewed the production specialists at at GOTO Inc, the 3D-modelers at HiFi 3D, and even celeb-scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson and Modecai-Mark Mac Low.

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet See on Scoop.it - Visualization Literacy Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation. ‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’. Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.  More info at the link.
