Hadley's tutorials on R Visualization

Here are a set of extremely nice tutorials from Hadley Wickham  (creator of ggplot) and whom we interviewed here at https://decisionstats.wordpress.com/2010/01/12/interview-hadley-wickham-r-project-data-visualization-guru/

Hadley is teaching two short courses at Vanderbilt university (read at http://gettinggeneticsdone.blogspot.com/2010/07/hadley-wickhams-ggplot2-data.html)

or download code and presentations here at http://had.co.nz/vanderbilt-vis/

They are a set of very very lucid and easy to understand presentations so even if you know very little R, or just want to learn visualization you can refer to them.

Here is the first lesson by Prof Hadley on Basics in Visualization using R.

Chrome Experiments

Here are some nice data visualization methods elaborated inhttp://www.chromeexperiments.com/

I created one using Social Collider for searching @smartdataco and generated this data mapcoolied

The site ( which goes by the tag of Not your mother’s Javascript) is created by Google ,Creator of Chrome Browser.

In light of these deeply held beliefs, we created this site to showcase cool experiments for both JavaScript and web browsers.

These experiments were created by designers and programmers from around the world. Their work is making the web faster, more fun, and more open the same spirit in which we built Google Chrome.

Here is an experiment called Canopy available athttp://www.chromeexperiments.com/detail/canopy/

It generates Fractals

Another more useful experiment is Social Collider which enables you to search Twitter for specific words, and create a data map for that
