It’s getting into conference season and a number of us are preparing material for conferences. DART is a large project and there’s no point in us reinventing the wheel and duplicating effort. We therefore need to find a way to share material effectively. Furthermore, if we don’t do this well then we can, inadvertently, create visualizations which are not appropriate for the standards within our many sub-domains (we have already experienced this with grey-scale ramping for the magnetometry data. Rob has blogged about this).
I will describe how I generate illustrative …
The Display of Geophyscial Data
The ramblings of a pedant
It is imperative that the display of geophysical data is clear, understandable and sensible. In addition, especially in a project such as the DART project, it also must be consistent. If the same data set is consistently displayed differently leads to confusion as well as misunderstanding about what the data is telling us, and makes the survey results futile. In the same sense that ‘bad data is worse than no data’, I would argue that badly presented data is probably only just better than no data.

Although we’re not there yet we will be collecting variables that relate to dynamic processes. One of the aims of DART is to identify process and correlate it to contrast formation. Given the variety of different variables we will encounter, this will be a difficult task. Visualization of the data will be crucial to identify underlying linkages. This video on vimeo displays quite a neat visualization process.
