Hi everyone!

I am new here, I really enjoy this Forum.
I was looking for data visualizations for environmental analysis...
Has this topic already been covered ?

Any examples/ suggestions to share ?

Thank you!

The story is in the data! Once you understand the story (analysis) then you are ready to write it (visualize).

Hello Freshwater,

Welcome to my discussion forum. I don't recall any discussions specifically focused on environmental analyses, but what Bill is suggesting is that we cannot provide any data visualization help until you've determined the data-based message that you want to communicate. If you have environmental data that reveals something that you would like to present as clearly and truthfully as possible, please provide us with the data, along with your interpretation of its message, and we'll do our best to suggest useful ways to present it.

Thank you Bill and thank you Stephen for your kind answers,
my English is not very good..Actually I am looking for a collection of existent creative environmental data visualizations...in 2D and 3D.
If you can suggest any link, it is welcome! 
I will surely ask your advice when I'll have to represent my own data.
best wishes!
Freshwater

Freshwater,

The one set of well-designed environmental visualizations that come to mind was the work of Bret Victor that provided web-based visualizations to accompany Al Gore's book An Inconvenient Truth. You should be able to find these still on the web.
