There’s another thing I don’t like about these standard datasets, however, and that’s that they are missed opportunities. If I’m displaying a new graph layout algorithm or a new visual analysis platform, it doesn’t really matter what data I use to illustrate it in the paper figures, so long as it’s sufficiently complex and “realistic” that it looks like my system does what it’s supposed to. That means that I have an opportunity to use that visual real estate to show something that I (and perhaps also you) care about. Why waste that space on something trivial? — https://medium.com/multiple-views-visualization-research-explained/doing-more-with-sample-datasets-d9ea622cecd7?source=rss—-304d1be73000—4
