Update: 25 June 2012 The project has been choosen by JISC to receive funding. Further information on the project and status updates will be communicated via the InteractiveVis project blog.
Update: 27 March 2012 We’ve been successful in getting 150 votes to be considered for funding. Thanks to everyone for the votes and support.
Since getting involved in some visualization development and research, I’ve often thought that interactivity was the best way to create great inviting visualizations that can be grasped quickly, yet allow in-depth exploration of data by users. Some interactivity is possible with existing tools, but most of these rely on users having additional software (e.g. Flash, Java) that, while common for desktops, limits the wider dissemination of these visualizations.
As web technologies have developed and become better supported, I’ve been working on extremely early stage code with OII Information Officer Kunika Kono to create interactive visualizations that run with entirely with native web technologies (HTML5, CSS3, SVG). We’ve applied for funding to further develop our ideas and create ways for all users to easily make interactive visualisations for geospatial and network data. To get considered for funding, however, we need 150 votes from .ac.uk email addresses.
