==I guess Dennis is referring to the Perpetual Ocean visualization ( http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/vis/a000000/a003800/a003827/index.html ) made by NASA with ECCO2 data ( http://ecco2.jpl.nasa.gov/products/ ). IMHO, data visualization can be a must depending on the type of data you are considering and the kind of hypothesis you are making. On certain social activity streams you could get to the objective with just summarized data in tabular format or you could need a (possibly interactive) graphical tree representation (chooses one from http://treevis.net/ ).

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
