There are many different ways to explore historic information. This is particularly true of data-sets, which can often be interpreted and analysed using a multitude of techniques. One is to seek to visualise aspects of the information– both literally and figuratively– and in so doing encourage ourselves to think about the past in new and occasionally unexpected ways. I have undertaken a number of visualisation projects on the site over the years in order to demonstrate this. These efforts always start with a data-set, but I also try to supplement them with different visual tools. These tools can range from interactive programs such as Google Fusion Tables, StoryMapJS and Palladio to straight forward illustrations and graphs. You can explore a number of these projects on this page.
