The new baby name visualization tool from Baby Name Brainstorm has been making the rounds in all the visualization blogs. It's a great platform for exploring a huge data set of first names. It's aesthetically pleasing, very responsive, and a pleasure to use.
That said, I noticed a couple things that could be improved.
Another test application for visualizing data collected by my GPS logger. This time the data is from skiing at Whistler Mountain.
I only made it to Whistler once for skiing this past winter season but I didn't forget my GPS logger. I collected the day's data and, aside from browsing Google Earth a couple times, it's remained untouched.
A quick test for visualizing similar artist data harvested from MusicBrainz and Last.FM. It's also been coupled with Amazon's web service so you can see a list of albums sold by the artist.
I've been working on a backend web service data harvester for several months. Now that it's ready I put together a Constellation visualization as quickly as I could.
I built an editor for adding and removing markers in a poly line. The editor features your basic select, add, and delete functions, and also uses a pretty nifty algorithm to determine the characterizing points out of hundreds of candidate points.
I wrote a custom renderer for Constellation which can represent nodes with squares, triangles, or pentagons. And in order to have arrows pointing at the nodes without overlap I got to do some math...
Check out this demo of some data from my GPS logger displayed over Google Maps. The interesting part here is that the path varies in thickness to indicate how much time I spent in an area.
I recently ported a script that draws splines of varying thickness to ActionScript 3.0. Click through for the demo and a link to Michal Migurski's original script.
An old side-project. After working through the equations for translating 3D points to a 2D screen I decided to apply it to a little animation.
This is a really old side-project that uses 3D perspective to place and size a bunch of people carrying umbrellas. I also put together the animations.
