Many Eyes – make data beautiful

Many Eyes.

Many Eyes is a site that turns data into an infographic.  Simply upload data, choose the type of chart/graph to display, and voila!  Math made beautiful.

Project-Based Learning:  Inforgraphics – especially interactive ones like ManyEyes can make – are a great deliverable, and have a ton of real-world application.  Sites like the New York Times and even MinnPost have been using infographics as new form a journalism for years, and infographics and the field of data visualization grow each year.  A great way to get students excited about math or any project that involves data – science labs, home grown sociology, survey results.
