Recently Ted Hall and Stephanie O’Malley of the UM3D Lab were interviewed by Christina Czuhajewski, a student at the School of Information, for her article featured on the “Hack Library School” blog. Christina’s contribution to the blog focuses on the role of visualization experts in the library.
My typical day involves spending as much time as possible developing software — sometimes to satisfy specific project demands, but usually aimed at developing general classes of visualization capabilities that will hopefully satisfy many future projects.

It requires a lot of creative problem solving to take someone’s idea and imagine how it can be implemented using the various skills everyone contributes to the lab… A lot of people think of visualization in terms of diagrams, charts and graphs and it actually goes so much further than that in most cases. We utilize a broad range of technology to create visualizations depending on the functionality needed by our various clients.
