We think producing quickly and efficiently visualisations that are maximally relevant to specific segments of our stakeholders is key to our success in engaging progressively more participants.
We find ourselves in a particularly virtuous feedback loop if we manage to put contributors in front of a simple interface (to them) to enter data, knowing that their work will directly translate into an outcome valuable to them. The easiest way to achieve that is to give them a perspective on their own work that they didn't have before, because they can then address their peers with already new information.
For this reason, we need to be able to produce high quality visualisations in an extremely modular way. There are several reasons for the modularity:
- separation of concerns between querying the database for data and producing the visualisation itself;
- modularity of either side;
- access controls on components generating such requests.
For these reasons, we wish to split searches below into reusable components, but we are not there yet...
These are some of the visualizations we are building together.
|Facebook's tools||various Facebook tools, and how they exchange information||simple view of FB|
|Facebook and disinformation||how disinformation blends into our information ecosystem through Facebook||FB and disinformation|
|Cambridge Analytica scandal||visual summary||summary of Cambridge Analytica scandal|
|Adtech ecosystem||routes your personal data takes when you browse the web|
|Platform economy and work||workers contribute a lot of data to the gig work ecosystem|
|Mobility data ecosystem||actors and activities in the mobility space|
|Open Science Hardware||Mapping the Gathering for Open Science Hardware community|
|MyData Global||the whole network|
|MyData Scotland||MyData Scotland ecosystem mapping workshop|
|MyData Geneva||workshop run in the context of the OpenGeneva festival|
|MyData Finland||Finnish ecosystem|
|MyData Japan||Japanese ecosystem|
Of course, it is necessary for these visualisations to engage in a mapping process. We explain here how to do so.
