In a recent symposium hosted at Caltech in collaboration with JPL and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, computer scientists, artists, and designers gathered to discuss what they called the "emerging science of big-data visualization." The speakers laid out their vision for it and demonstrated its utility, power, and beauty with myriad examples.
