SciVis, maps, charts, graphs and infographics. There is some truth to the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words. Data visualization can be beautiful and compelling. More importantly, it can provide insight and communicate complex data clearly to scientists and the public. At the next STEM Café, hear from Joe Insley, who has been a data visualization researcher at Argonne National Laboratory for more than twenty years and is an associate research professor in NIU’s School of Art and Design. He’ll share a wide range of visualization examples, including large-scale computer simulations, and discuss how these examples impact scientific research and our everyday lives.
