Join us while Irene and I talk about how animations and movements can create a lot of advantages such as the following:
- Portray data directly through motion (what Irene defines as ‘data as motion’). This is an example of it.
- Interpolate through data values (‘motion as an interpolation of data values’). Gapminder, or the visualizations showing how PASI changes through time under different psoriasis treatments (see paper here).
- Guide viewers through the visualization (‘motion as a storytelling device’). Like in this visualization where every time the user interacts a transition happens.
- And captivate viewers (‘motion as a captivator’). All the examples mentioned above fit in this category.
