Jarke is a professor of visualization in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology and an important historical figure (shall we say legend?) in visualization research.</p><p>Many amazing innovative techniques have been developed in his lab, including the widely adopted <em>squarified treemaps </em>(treemaps optimized to use rectangles as close as possible to squares)<em> </em>and <em>hierarchical edge bundling </em>(a technique to bundle the links of a graph together).</p><p>In this episode we hear the stories behind many of the innovations developed by Jarke and his group. Jarke also speaks to us about how to make cool stuff; the relationship between design, engineering and research; and artistry in visualization.</p><p>Enjoy the show!</p><hr /><p><i><span lang="EN-US">Data Stories is brought to you by Qlik.

His fascinating, if not depressing, experiments have consistently shown how hard it is for statistics to elicit any sense of scale in human tragedies and how numbers can often even be detrimental if the goal is to elicit compassion and generous actions from an audience.</p><p>On the show, we talk about &#8220;Statistical Numbing&#8221; and it psychological underpinnings. Professor Slovic also describes his experiments and their implications. And we address one of the most important questions: Is there hope? Is there something we, as practitioners, can do to counteract these negative effects?</p><p>Enjoy this deeply scientific episode and let us know what you think!</p><hr class="ttfmake-hr" style="border-style: solid; border-top-width: 1px;" /><p>This episode of Data Stories is sponsored by <a href="http://freshbooks.com/datastories">FreshBooks</a>, the small business accounting software that makes your accounting tasks easy, fast and secure.

After many years of searching for the right person, subject and format, we are happy to publish this fantastic episode with <a href="http://web.mit.edu/sahughes/www/">Scott Hughes</a> from MIT. Scott is an astrophysicist and a key figure at <a href="https://www.ligo.caltech.edu/">LIGO</a>, the laser interferometer project that finally allowed scientists to &#8220;listen&#8221; to the sound of two colliding black holes.</p><p>Here Scott talks about how he decided to sonify his data and how sonification is being used by scientists to understand astrophysical phenomena.</p><p>Listen as we play a number of samples; Scott walks us through their meaning and the physics behind them. It&#8217;s really really cool. Warm up your ears!</p><p>You can also listen to some samples from Scott Hughes and his team here:</p><p>&nbsp;</p><ul><li><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/hp_nospin-7.mov">Simulation of two black holes orbiting each other</a>. They gradually spiral together. As they move closer, the waves sweep up in frequency and amplitude, producing the &#8220;chirp.&#8221;</li></ul><p>&nbsp;</p><ul><li>Simulation of a final collision of two massive black holes, what Scott calls &#8220;the ringing mode&#8221; of a black hole. All that is audible is the last &#8220;pop&#8221; of the system settling down to a single black hole.<!--[if lt IE 9]><script>document.createElement('audio');</script><![endif]--><audio class="wp-audio-shortcode" id="audio-1686-1" preload="none" style="width: 100%;" controls="controls"><source type="audio/mpeg" src="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/m100.mp3?_=1" /><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/m100.mp3">http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/m100.mp3</a></audio><p>&nbsp;</li><li>Two objects moving past each other in space. The gravitational waves in this case are loud when the small body moves close to the large body (its motion is fast during that part of the orbit), and they are quiet when the small body is far away (when its motion is slow).<audio class="wp-audio-shortcode" id="audio-1686-2" preload="none" style="width: 100%;" controls="controls"><source type="audio/wav" src="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/e0.95_i20.wav?_=2" /><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/e0.95_i20.wav">http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/e0.95_i20.wav</a></audio><p>&nbsp;</li><li>Also, take a look at the many links that we have added below.

We have <a href="http://blacki.info/">Blacki Migliozzi</a> and <a href="http://www.ericroston.com/">Eric Roston</a> from Bloomberg on the show to talk about their recent data graphic piece on climate change called &#8220;<a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2015-whats-warming-the-world/">What&#8217;s Really Warming The World?</a>&#8221;</p><p>The graphic shows, through a &#8220;scrollytelling,&#8221; what factors may influence the world&#8217;s temperature according to well-established climate models. It guides you through a series of questions and visuals to all you to see for yourself what correlates (spoiler: carbon emissions) and what does not.</p><p>On the show we talk about how the Bloomberg team came up with this piece, their interaction with the <a href="http://www.giss.nasa.gov/">NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS)</a> scientists who developed the model, and the many challenges of translating important scientific knowledge into more digestible, but not simplistic, articles that everyone can read.</p><p>We also talk about how they took inspiration from the children book &#8220;<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Wheres-Spot-Eric-Hill/dp/0399207589">Where&#8217;s Spot?</a>&#8221; (which is a nice narrative technique for vis!) and all the delicate design decisions they had to make.</p><p>&#8230; And don&#8217;t miss the moment when Eric drops the huge IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) report book to give a sense of how big it is!</p><p>Enjoy the show!</p><p>&#8212;<br />This episode is sponsored by Qlik who allows you to explore hidden relationships within data that lead to insights.

We have Stamen‘s CEO Eric Rodenbeck on the show to talk about “Visualization Going Mainstream”. Moritz took inspiration from Eric’s Eyeo talk “And Then There Were Twelve – How to (keep) running a successful data visualization and design studio.” and decided he must come on the show.

Stamen is a design studio in San Francisco founded in 2001 by Eric. They have been real pioneers in data visualization and cartographic mapping with the production of great apps and libraries such as Pretty Maps, Trulia Hindsight, Crimespotting and many many more. (See also our episode with Mike Migurski)

With Eric we discuss a broad range of important topics including: how to manage a vis business, how to have an impact with visualization and visualization success stories.

Enjoy the show!

We invited Alberto Cairo and Robert Kosara to discuss the role of storytelling in visualization.  What is storytelling? Is all visualization storytelling? Should we always strive for telling a story? How does storytelling match with exploratory visualization? Should we aim more for <em>worlds</em> and <em>macroscopes</em> than stories as Moritz advocated a while back at Visualized? We went on a somewhat lengthy discussion on these topics and I think we all ended up agreeing on a lot of things and developed a much more nuanced view of storytelling. As you can see from the picture we had lots of fun (thanks Robert for taking the screenshot).

We have Jon Schwabish on the show in this episode. Jon is an economist who specializes in data visualization for politics and economics. You can see some of his work in the blog he writes called <a href="http://policyviz.com/">Policyviz</a>.</p><p>We invited him to talk about his recent new initiative called <a href="http://helpmeviz.com/">HelpMeViz</a>, a web site where people can send requests to visualize some data of interest or redesign some particularly tricky charts. The web site quickly gained some momentum and already publishes quite a nice set of charts, suggested redesigns, and most of all very insightful discussions (it&#8217;s not just the usual I like this, I like that). There is a lot to learn there.</p><p>In the interview we talk about how <a href="http://helpmeviz.com/">HelpMeViz</a> was born, how it works, what kind of entries they have been published so far and how it&#8217;s going to evolve. Give a look to <a href="http://helpmeviz.com/">HelpMeViz</a> and submit your own charts and data there!</p><p>Links</p><ul><li><a href="http://helpmeviz.com/howitworks/">How HelpMeViz works</a> &#8230;</li><li>Jon&#8217;s &#8220;<a href="http://pubs.aeaweb.org/doi/pdfplus/10.1257/jep.28.1.209">An Economist&#8217;s Guide to Visualizing Data</a>&#8221; (full of very nice examples of chart redesign)</li><li>Interesting discussions from HelpMeViz:<ul><li><a href="http://helpmeviz.com/2014/01/14/budget-pie-chart-triplet/">Budget Pie Chart Triplet</a></li><li><a href="http://helpmeviz.com/2013/12/17/state-migration-flows/">State Migration Flows</a></li><li><a href="http://helpmeviz.com/2014/02/18/trying-to-excel-at-excel/">Debate About Colors</a></li></ul></li></ul><p>&#8212;</p><p>And here&#8217;s another piece of great news: For the first time, this episode was audio edited and annotated by a volunteer helper &#8211; woo! <a href="http://fabriciotav.org/about.html">Fabricio Tavares</a> was kind to help us. Thanks a million! The equation is simple: less audio editing work for Moritz means more episodes we can do in a year. <a href="mailto:mail@datastori.es">Get in touch</a> in case you would like help us, too!</p>""

Listen to the episode and you&#8217;ll see it.</p><p>Visualizations discussed in detail:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><figure id="attachment_156" style="width: 710px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00.jpg"><img data-attachment-id="156" data-permalink="http://datastori.es/mymuesli_00/" data-orig-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00.jpg" data-orig-size="710,600" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;}" data-image-title="moritzstefaner" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00-300x253.jpg" data-large-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00.jpg" class="wp-image-156 size-full" title="mymuesli_00" src="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00.jpg" alt="" width="710" height="600" srcset="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00.jpg 710w, http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00-300x253.jpg 300w, http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_00-355x300.jpg 355w" sizes="(max-width: 710px) 100vw, 710px" /></a><figcaption class="wp-caption-text">Mo&#8217;s Müsli Network</figcaption></figure></td><td><p><figure id="attachment_155" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix.jpg"><img data-attachment-id="155" data-permalink="http://datastori.es/mymuesli_matrix/" data-orig-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix.jpg" data-orig-size="710,710" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;}" data-image-title="moritzstefaner" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix-300x300.jpg" data-large-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix.jpg" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-155" title="mymuesli_matrix" src="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix-150x150.jpg 150w, http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix-300x300.jpg 300w, http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mymuesli_matrix.jpg 710w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption class="wp-caption-text">Mo&#8217;s Müsli Matrix</figcaption></figure></td><td><p><figure id="attachment_154" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/srep00196-f2.jpg"><img data-attachment-id="154" data-permalink="http://datastori.es/srep00196-f2/" data-orig-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/srep00196-f2.jpg" data-orig-size="946,597" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;}" data-image-title="moritzstefaner" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/srep00196-f2-300x189.jpg" data-large-file="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/srep00196-f2.jpg" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-154" title="srep00196-f2" src="http://datastori.es/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/srep00196-f2-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption class="wp-caption-text">Barabasi&#8217;s Flavor Network</figcaption></figure></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Episode breakdown:</p><p>[00:00] Intro<br />[02:18] Today&#8217;s topic &#8211;
