Using Arrays to display the top 200 universities

With only one month until the official public launch of Arrays, we are continuing to display the endless ways that its state-of-the-art visualization and data sharing capabilities can be used to create unique, living documents.

Aside from the many instances of product galleries, art and design showcases, and research documents emboldened and vividly brought to life, Arrays truly proves its pragmatic and ergonomic value each time our team finds a new way to add narrative to raw data.

Various organizations have already utilized Arrays’ potential to properly demonstrate the versatility of its many features, but one of the greatest attributes of the visuals and sharing that Arrays provides is its ideal capability for research.

In this latest example, we are able to present an important usage that would benefit the world of high education—administrators, faculty, students, and trade researchers alike. Here, we visualized the world ranking of the 200 top colleges and universities, using Arrays to display and break down the rankings.

With Arrays’ accessible design, site visitors are able to not only quickly see the top of the ranking lists (in this case, the California Institute of Technology, the University of Oxford, Stanford University, University of Cambridge, and MIT took the top honors), but can re-arrange the rankings by order of country and international score, teaching score, each school’s ratio for research, student-to-staff numbers, gender statistics, and ratio of international students currently enrolled. Clicking on each individual school also provides a full overview of the institution’s ranking.

Now imagine how Arrays can bring your own information and ideas vividly to life. 

As always, I welcome you to explore our numerous datasets at to learn the endless possibilities that Arrays offers for your organization. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and to check back as we gear up for the March launch!
