This talk will present an overview of techniques and workflows used to analyze and visualize temporal, geospatial, topical, and network datasets at a micro, meso, and macro level. Emphasis is on the design of insightful visualizations. Diverse visualizations of biomedical data but also of the structure and evolution of science itself, e.g., funding patterns, evolving co-authorship networks, knowledge diffusion networks, will be presented, dissected, and discussed. The Network Workbench (NWB) Tool—designed to support the analysis and visualization of networks—and the Science of Science (Sci2) Tool—designed for the study of science using scientific means—will be demonstrated.
