Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data, meaning "information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information".

A Thread of Ariadnes

One of my previous lecturers jokingly said that once you had a title, logo and an acronym for your project, 80% of the work was done. Except I'm not so sure she was joking, now. Ariadne took (relatively) little time to be decided on as a title, but as it turned out, many other projects around the world, and one in particular in the UK, shared this greek mythological name. This has caused problems; for example, lists of digital libraries/training projects occasionally get us mixed up with the Ariadne project at Lancaster. Dr. David Nichols from this Lancaster project gives a brief run-down of other projects that have taken the name Ariadne.
