Sequential data from Web server logs, online transaction logs, and performance measurements is collected each day. This sequential data is a valuable source of information, as it allows individuals to search for a particular value or event and also facilitates analysis of the frequency of certain events or sets of related events. Finding patterns in sequences is of utmost importance in many areas of science, engineering, and business scenarios.

This book investigates the ways in which these systems can promote public value by encouraging the disclosure and reuse of privately-held data in ways that support collective values such as environmental sustainability. Supported by funding from the National Science Foundation, the authors’ research team has been working on one such system, designed to enhance consumers ability to access information about the sustainability of the products that they buy and the supply chains that produce them. Pulled by rapidly developing technology and pushed by budget cuts, politicians and public managers are attempting to find ways to increase the public value of their actions.

One of the most powerful ways to understand data is to recognize the ways in which each datum-person, product, etc-connects to another. Visualizing these graphs makes it possible to literally see the connections. The graph model consists of data elements, called nodes, and edges, which are the relationships between these nodes. Graphs make the relationships between the data elements a core part of the data structure, which means you can better comprehend the meaning of your data. And visual data is easier for everyone to understand.V
