Repulsive curves

Chris Yu, Henrik Schumacher, and Keenan Crane from Carnegie Mellon University are working on repulsive curves, which is a method to efficiently unravel curves so that they don’t overlap: Curves play a fundamental role across computer graphics, physical simulation, and mathematical visualization, yet most tools for curve design do nothing to prevent crossings or self-intersections. This paper develops efficient algorithms for (self-)repulsion of plane and space curves that are well-suited...

Alberto Cairo’s new book How Charts Lie is a guide on how to better spot the latter.

How practitioners learned data visualization

Visualization is still a relatively young field, so people learn about and how to visualize data in a lot of different ways.
