    WHAT IS CIRCOS?

    THIS IS A NICE DATA VISUALIZATION TOOL THAT IS OPEN SOURCE.

    CIRCULAR VISUALIZATION
    Circos is a software package for visualizing data and information. It visualizes data in a circular layout — this makes Circos ideal for exploring relationships between objects or positions. There are other reasons why a circular layout is advantageous, not the least being the fact that it is attractive.

    Circos is ideal for creating publication-quality infographics and illustrations with a high data-to-ink ratio, richly layered data and pleasant symmetries. You have fine control each element in the figure to tailor its focus points and detail to your audience.

    ▴ Images created with Circos, illustrating links, ribbons, tiles and a variety of 2D data tracks. If it’s round, Circos can probably do it (more images).
    Circos is flexible. Although originally designed for visualizing genomic data, it can create figures from data in any field. If you have data that describes relationships or multi-layered annotations of one or more scales, Circos is for you.

    Circos can be automated. It is controlled by plain-text configuration files, which makes it easily incorporated into data acquisition, analysis and reporting pipelines (a data pipeline is a multi-step process in which data is analyzed by multiple and typically independent tools, each passing their output as the input to the next step).

    Those of you who would like to work with the Cooperative on WGA, lets start by introducing yourself here. As we move forward, we will organization ourselves and this site around teams and projects. Y Worlds does have resources to allocate and has a starting blueprint for you to react to and build upon. We look forward to your involvement. We also look forward to your help in creating applications and code libraries and breakthrough ideas to drive us toward a new way to communicate through a semiotic engine in real time.

      I’m cofounder and president of Openworld, a nonprofit volunteer network and consulting practice that specializes in innovative ways of removing barriers to entrepreneurship. I’ve worked in 50+ countries on policy reforms, technology parks, and startup incubators. My main current interests include mapping systems for online collaboration based on patterned storylines (http://is.gd/nfractals), Mind-Body-Spirit coordinate systems for user profiles, virtual games for actual change (http://is.gd/openworldgame), and challenge offers as a way for bootstrap groups to obtain land grants or other enduring asset endowments. I’ve also specialized in free economic zones for knowledge-based industries, and microscholarship initiatives in economically struggling areas. On the home front, I’m active in nonprofit groups (mainly http://ArtisansCourtyard.org) working to improve the local business climate and attract creative ventures to the Shenandoah Valley. I’m also very interested in alternative currencies (http://is.gd/help4nonprofits) and would love to see them integrated in online as well as actual communities. Earlier in my career, I was publisher and managing editor of Reason magazine, and cofounder of the Local Government Center, springboard for Reason Foundation’s privatization practice. I’m a graduate of Harvard University and former Visiting Fellow of the Lehrman Institute, where I researched ways that neighborhood associations can take on municipal service responsibilities.

      My name is Brock Dubbels. I am currently part of a work group at McMaster University in the Department of Computing and Software. My training is in Cognitive Psychology, psychophysics, and Social Learning. My current work is on the G-Scale initiative.

      G SCALE
      May 2012 to present
      **Identify all of the issues of general user interface relating to usability at different scales for software, then help design (and implement) a set of domain-specific languages which capture the constraints of user-interface features with respect to scale.

      **This will be done through emphasis from psychology and user-interface literature. This process is intended to identify cognitive issues relating to scale perception, and capture these in a formal model. Examples: Fitts’ Law, Hick’s Law and the Steering Law, Visual Span, Event Indexing, Embodied Cognition, and Symbolic Representation.

      **Identify examples of such concerns, and pre-existing solutions, from existing software which works at multiple scales; put an emphasis on solutions concerning gaming software.

      **Relate these models and solutions to design constraints for features in software.

      **Embody these design constraint into a set of domain specific languages; and

      **Provide interpreters for these languages.

      CLIR Fellowship
      I will also be working with the McMaster Engineering and Science libraries on data management issues. Specifically projects that forge, renovate, and strengthen connections between academic library collections and their users. The program offers scholars the chance to develop new research models, collaborate with information specialists, and explore new career opportunities. Participating libraries benefit from the expertise of accomplished scholars who can invigorate approaches to collection use and teaching, contribute field-specific knowledge, and provide insight into the future of scholarship.

      I will be particularly focused on developing structures that promote participation, rather than just interaction. I am very interested in big data sets and how these are curated for a data lifecycle. I am particularly interested in how participation with a data set can help in organizing future usage of the data set, and the discovery process in collecting data for new and unique analysis–beyond the initial intent of the data set.

      As an example, I am very interested in how the FoldIt protein folding game has used structured participation to have humans support their computation.

      It seems to me that we can develop interesting AI strategies from copying human participatory activity.

      RunMyCode Fellow

      I will also be evangelizing for RunMyCode

      http://www.runmycode.org/CompanionSite/

      I am also the Chair of the Research Group at the Serious Games Association.

      I am very interested in creating interfaces that learn from users. The area of lifelogging, AI, and mining participatory culture for metadata is of great interest.

      My intent is to apply these interests to discovery for big data sets.

        Hi Brock. Welcome to WGA. It will be great to work with you. We will be defining our first initiatives soon. Congratulations on your exciting new role and your exciting new life. Best wishes. Alan

      Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
