Join Chris Reilly for an in-depth discussion in this video What is data?, part of Learning Grasshopper.
…In addition to algorithms,…something we'll talk a lot about while working with Grasshopper is Data.…So, what exactly is Data?…Well, when we talk about Data, we're talking about plain, unorganized facts.…Data can be qualitative, relating to observable things like color, shape,…or size.…Or it can quantitative for things like length, volume, or area.…Data and information are often used interchangeably.…But there are important differences between the two.…Data are raw facts with no context or organization.…
And Data becomes information when it is processed, structured, or…contextualized, so that it becomes useful and meaningful.…Now, inside of Grasshopper we can get Data from a few different places.…One of those is from geometry that we modeled in Rhino, so this could be…something like the location of the center point of a circle, the length of a line,…the curvature of a surface at a given point, just to name a few.…We can also have locally defined Data, which is essentially numbers,…names or other things that are manually entered by you, the user.…
