One main goal of the INA is to develop a new system of mapping our world -- one that does not rely on geography, but on more meaningful parameters... example at http://www.princeton.edu/~ina/maps/non_geographic/index.html developed by 10x10 creator : http://www.number27.org/ Good infographic examples : http://www.princeton.edu/~ina/infographics/index.html

Kitware, Inc. VTK supports a wide variety of visualization algorithms including scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods; and advanced modeling techniques such as implicit modelling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation. http://www.vtk.org/

Current data visualization leaders like Advanced Visual Systems Inc. (AVS), Antarctica Systems Visual Net and Spotfire DecisionSite offer further insight into data by demonstrating relationships that occur through multi-dimensional attributes and statistical patterns. This is an evolving field that shows much promise in the coming years in the enterprise analytics arena. http://webiea.blogspot.com/2004/10/data-visualization-now-you-see.html

"The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures."
"Programming without an overall architecture or design in mind is like exploring a cave with only a flashlight: You don't know where you've been, you don't know where you're going, and you don't know quite where you are."
"I've never met a human being who would want to read 17,000 pages of documentation, and if there was, I'd kill him to get him out of the gene pool."
