New Work: Asia Matters for America

Established and funded by the United States government and additional support by private parties, the East-West Center's Asia Matters for America initiative is an interactive resource for students, government officials, policy makers, and journalists to discover credible and unbiased information, analysis, and news on US-Asia relations. 

Five Years In: What We Believe

This year in November, Schema turned five. We have had a great trajectory so far, due to our incredible collaborators, partners, and clients. Thank you for making our vision of designing for knowledge a reality.

New Work: European Court of Human Rights Database

Schema partnered with the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington to create the European Court of Human Rights Database (ECHRdb) — an innovative application visualizing the cases of the European Court of Human Rights, and enables broad access to the data by scholars, practitioners, and the general public. The tool is based on a static dataset spanning the years 1960–2014. It includes over 15,000 judgments, 91.9% of which were violations, and 1,233 amicus briefs.

New Work: Searching for Health

Schema collaborated with Google News Lab and Alberto Cairo to create “Searching for Health”, a visualization that tracks the top searches for common health issues in the United States, from Cancer to Diabetes, and compares them with the actual location of occurrences for those same health conditions.

Schema Featured in Communication Arts Design Annual 58

We’re more than excited to announce that Schema is featured in the Communication Arts Design Annual 58 issue! It is an honor to be recognized for our unique work and we are delighted to be in this publication alongside so many other talented designers and artists.

Schema at Collision Conference

Last year we unveiled the public pre-release of Arrays at the Collision Conference, known as “America’s fastest growing tech conference”. Since then, we have launched our private beta, exhibited at the Web and Dublin Tech summits, and have continued to build a valuable platform with unique visualizations and data sharing capabilities. This year we went back to New Orleans to open Arrays up to the public. 

Schema at SXSW

Recently Christian Marc Schmidt of Schema and Roxanne Kunz of Amgen traveled to South By Southwest (SXSW) to unveil Insight, our collaboration with Amgen, for the first time to the public.

New Work: The US-China FDI Project

We collaborated with Rhodium Group, a research firm in New York specializing on analyzing disruptive global trends, on a data visualization of US-China Foreign Direct Investments. The piece shows the investment flows between the two countries at the state and province level. Users can filter by industry or time range, as well as selecting specific states or provinces to see the detailed flows between them. The US-China Project utilizes Arrays, Schema’s data visualization platform.

Schema at Dublin Tech Summit

Christian traveled across the Atlantic a few weeks ago to participate in the first Dublin Tech Summit, an international technology conference bringing together leaders shaping the tech industry today, to foster relationships and inspire attendees with some of the fastest developing technologies. 

Schema at Web Summit

Over the past year, Schema has been busy working on a new platform for visualizing collections, called Arrays. Use Arrays to publish your collection as a beautiful, interactive online experience. In November, we took Arrays to the Web Summit conference in Lisbon, and got a ton of interest and feedback.
