Another post for NDIIPP’s The Signal blog.

Visualizations and Digital Collections.

I put together a panel at the upcoming MARAC Spring 2013 conference on Data Visualization and Archives and a couple of the projects mentioned in the blog post will be presented there.

We couldn’t quite fit all the visualization images into the post that we wanted to, so I’m going to dump some of the others below. I’ll also embed the Visual Archives Series Browser, which is awesome. Data visualization really does seem to hold a lot of potential for all stages of the archival endeavor.
