Center for Digital Education, 8.6.14
At The Graduate Center, CUNY, a new CUNY Center for Digital Scholarship and Data Visualization will be the hub for work on data sets from cultural institutions. Data visualization involves creating visual ways to understand and interact with data such as Instagram pictures, which researchers including The Graduate Center's Lev Manovich did in their Phototrails
project of 2.5 million Instagram photos from 13 cities around the world. Staff at the new center will help the employees of cultural institutions, including the New York Public Library and the Museum of Modern Art, to visualize their holdings.
