This is an online application that presents backdated meteorological data from Augsburg, Germany. The tool combines the advantages of several static visualisations, such as tables, line graphs and bar charts into a streamlined display. The application is fully interactive and allows the user to look at the information from any angle she wants, literally.
Circular timeline and bubble chart
The outer circle illustrates presidential periods, the governing party, and whether or not the President died in office. The first inner circle shows the "eras" in history that those time periods covered. The third inner circle shows key foreign conflicts and wars. The fourth inner circle (purple) shows key legislative acts (or series of bills) that were issued. Finally, the bubbles in the middle indicate the average national debt, as indicated every 8 years.
This is a tool designed to explore the history of visualization by placing interactive milestones along a timeline. The milestones include graphs, maps and technology that have made possible the change in visualization methods. Each milestone is linked to a detailed explanation and a visual example.
This visualisation is a combination of an area graph and a time line. The areas here are used to represent the gross box office results of movies relased between 1986 and 2008. The visualisation is enhanced with links to reviews of the movies included.
Time line: Globlal media scare stories
This time line relies on the use of area charts on several depth levels. Each chart presents the number of stories per topic against time giving a good sense of the evolution trough time of media coverage of some recent news.
Scatterplot is used to compare of driving habits and petrol prices. Each point in the plot is joined to the previous years point, with the drawn path indicating order in time.
Urban Diary Aquarium
Saturday track record of three participants of the UrbanDiary project recorded in London. The data is plotted with the z-axis representing time of the day. The time frame in this case is 24 hours and starts from the bottom at 00h00 passing the time upwards to 24h00. Each participant has a time reference icon over the home location, where the journey starts and ends.
There is one female and two male participants, of whom the female and one male participant have family. The single male goes in to work just as normal although it is a Saturday and returns home in the afternoon to do some sport activity locally where he lives. His journey starts at 08h23, ends at 17h19 and travels around 15 km. The woman does some local activities with her family and travels in to her workplace briefly later on. She starts her day at 07h01, ends at 20h09, and covers 30 km wile traveling. The Second male participant spends his day in the local area. This journey starts at 11h45, ends at 18h53, and measures 5 km.
