Exploring space filling curves.

What is a curve. A curve is a path inscribed into a dimensional space. We are all familiar with curves in euclidian space such as 2 dimensional space where polynomial functions describe a path through that 2-d space. We see below some well know polynomial functions graphed in a small range. in these examples, the […]

I recently came across a compilation of columns that were originally published in Nature Methods. The compilation was subsequently published in 2015 as a document that covers data visualization and presentation of scientific data. It is a brief collection (40 pages) that provides a good set of suggestions when presenting and visualizing complex data sets. […]
