The datavis course

With pride and simplicity we present the first curriculum course at D&I exclusively around and about mapping and visualization: these are the results of a five weeks experiment with visual narratives, learning about -what is and -how to design with information and data. In these pages you'll find the visualizations of extended data stories that we have been developing from the very very scratch: by finding topics interesting to be investigated, going in the field and in the dark to browse data, collecting, polishing and creating datasets, and finally giving a visual shape to them, by sketching and coding. All the projects in this exhibition tackle social issues, cultural topics, and try to explore humanities in its variety of forms, expression, and looking at the details. It has been our way to use design tools, and in particular diagrammatic and mapping languages, to approach, understand, and communicate the complexity of the urban systems and the social networks that we live into. All the projects have been developed starting from original research interests of the students. These visualizations are dense of meanings, they don't have to be seen, they are meant to be read. Take your time.

我们荣幸又简要地向诸位呈现 关于地图绘制与视觉 化的首次展览:这些作品来自于过去一个学期中进 行的关于视觉叙事的实验成果,我们学习什么是信 息和数据设计,以及如何去做。 你还会看到我们用视觉化 手段呈现的用四周时间发展完善的数据故事:我们 寻找有趣的调研主题,进入田野和未知领域搜寻、 采集、完善数据并建立数据库,最后用图示和编码 的方式赋之予形。 此次展览中的所有项目都涉及社会议题、焦点主题 ,并尝试透过人文的视角来表达和审视这些细节。 这是我们使用设计工具的方式,特别是采用图表化 、地图化的语言,来接近、理解并传达我们生活的 城市系统和社会网络的复杂性。 这些视觉化作品含义丰富,它们未 必显而易见,唯有阅读可以释放它们。
