This semester, I will be supporting my professor in data visualization. The purpose of the course is to give design students an insight into how data can be visualized via photo series, web applications, sculpture in the form of a project. They have to collect their own data and think about ways to gain further insights or predictions for the future.
Since I will specifically support in graph use cases, I have prepared a little presentation to give that crowd an oversight on what is possible with graphs, leaving out as much tech details as possible. Anyways I will be the one responsible for working their data into a Neo4j database.
So far I've grouped the content into
What is a graph?
Real life occurrences of graphs (Neural networks, vector graphics - design stuff like flowcharts and family trees)
A tech example (Talent.net)
What I can help with (Visualization, insights, crazy networks)
How can I communicate my love for graphs and the possibilities in the best manner to non-tech people?
Maybe someone also knows cool projects that are an example of graphs in design they could share.
I think I'm on a good way with my presentation, but I'd be bummed if no one was interested in using that potential.
I made a little survey here to collect insights, maybe you can fill it out if you don't want to answer directly to that topic.
