Designed by faculty, AccessEngineering’s DataVis is the interactive, web-based data visualization tool that transforms the way students learn about material properties. DataVis instantly displays property data in interactive dot-plots and scatterplots across a wide range of materials. Our carefully curated dataset of 200 materials and 65 properties—including cost—provides students with enough data to learn about material properties without overwhelming them.
Many students are able to apply formulas without fully understanding the concepts behind the formulas, or why a property for a material has a particular value. DataVis bridges this gap by presenting material property data in dynamic visualizations that enable students and faculty to tell a story with the data.
DataVis is an active, visual learning tool that helps students:
Understand the variation of properties both within and across material classifications
Evaluate up to five properties simultaneously across classifications
Visualize how some properties differ by many orders of magnitude across material classifications, while others do not
Translate design goals and constraints while understanding how material properties intersect with these goals
Factor cost into material selection
Create, save and share visualization projects
