    The Feltron Biennial Report of 2010 and 2011

    Posted: 29-February-2012, 5:11pm EST

    feltron_report_2011.jpg
    It is that happy time of year again: information designer Nicholas Felton has released his latest year report, this time covering a two-year period. As usual, the biennial report covers almost all the quantified facts and statistics of the daily life of Nicholas, which he painstakingly records through careful note taking, as well as analyzing his Last.fm and FitBit statistics.

    The covered topics of the report include trivial things like the places he visited or the most popular beverages he drank. These statistics have been filtered by local versus overseas location, as well as the actual person he was accompanied with.

    The real joy of reading such reports, however, hides in reading the juicy anecdotes, such as the number of tsunami warnings he luckily survived or the car accidents he experienced, in addition to discovering various small annotations on the data graphics, that clarify the impact of some events, such as the long itinerary to Australia or the unfortunate death of his father.

    Be sure not to miss a critical eye to the work by The Why Axis.

    Ville Vivante: Tracing the Liveliness of Mobile Phone Usage in Geneva

    Posted: 29-February-2012, 6:12pm EST

    ville_vivante.jpg
    Ville Vivante [villevivante.ch] represents the digital traces created by the constant movement of mobile phones in the city of Geneva, Switzerland.

    A particle flow-field inspired map provides a view of the 'liveliness' of the people using their cell phone as they move about, as the activities and directions are embodied by the density of lines shown on the map. A circular bar graph conveys the direction of people over a time period of 24 hours, by contrasting the movements coming into the city, with those activities that are going outside. Finally, a dotted timeline compares the cumulative activity of the city per hour and per day, as the size and brightness of each unique bubble indicates the aggregate of activity over a specific period of time.

    One tip: be sure to select the links 'Posters' and then 'Explore' to enjoy a few simple forms of interactivity.

    Ranking the Autonomy of Universities in Europe

    Posted: 27-February-2012, 8:55pm EST

    university_autonomy.jpg
    The European University Association (EUA), a representative organisation of universities from about 47 European countries, just released a University Autonomy Tool [university-autonomy.eu]. Developed by Raureif and interface designer Christian Behrens, the online visualization analyzes the relationship between universities and the state, in particular by revealing how flexibly universities can take decisions in the context of the rules and regulations that shape their higher education system.

    Each (sometimes spiraling) sunburst-like "line" represents a unique indicator, made up by a multitude of squares. The more squares are filled, the more autonomous the higher education system. A high score on an indicator or autonomy dimension indicates that the relevant regulations provide a legal framework without restricting universities in their freedom of action.

    Comparing the Fundraising Performance of the US Presidential Candidates

    Posted: 2-February-2012, 4:17pm EST

    fundraising_president_2012.jpg
    The NYTimes released a competitive dashboard of sorts, titled "The 2012 Money Race: Compare the Candidates" [nytimes.com]. Basically, the interactive graphic allows readers to contrast the various performance parameters in terms of fundraising from 2 presidential candidates next to each other. Another recent graphic [nytimes.com] lists the hundreds of organizations and people that fund the so-called Super PACs that are officially not controlled by those very candidates.

    As also explained in the accompanying press article, both infographics reveal how President Obama continues to outraise all of the candidates currently seeking the Republican nomination. It is also remarkable, however, that some checks seem to come from sources obscured from public view, like those with only a post office box for a headquarters, and no known employees.

    If you like to play around with the data yourself, you should be able to find it at the Federal Election Commission website (which, in fact, also publish simple but interactive infographics of their own).

    Revealing the Energy Consumption of Each Building in New York

    Posted: 2-February-2012, 8:16pm EST

    energy_new_york.jpg
    The remarkably detailed map [columbia.edu] developed by the Modi Research Group of the Earth Institute at Columbia University reveals the total annual building energy consumption of New York, at both the block and 'taxlot' level (which is nearly at building level).

    The map was built using MapBox. The total energy consumption is expressed in kilowatt hours (kWh) per square meter of land area. The data actually was not retrieved from utility companies, but calculated via an elaborate statistical model that is based on current large-scale estimates (e.g. the average energy use by ZIP code) in addition to lower-scale, estimated parameters (like the type and size of the building). Hovering over individual blocks or lots shows more detailed information, such as the type of energy being used, for which purpose (e.g. heating and cooling, electricity or hot water) and in what quantity.

    Revealing the Impact of Super Bowl Advertising on Social Media

    Posted: 3-February-2012, 7:28pm EST

    superbowl_brandwatch.jpg
    The interactive dashboard at Brandwatch Super Bowl [brandwatch.com] shows the true impact of the highly expensive advertising that is shown during the Super Bowl, in particular on social online media.

    Each so-called 'worm' represents a unique sponsor (including brands like Pepsi, Mars, Walt Disney or H&M). The accompanying number stands for the number of tweets that were made about that brand or their products over the last 28 days (and, yes, the 'worm' who has possession of the ball is winning).

    The additional display on the right reveals the complete ranking of all tracked brands, complete with time-based sparklines, the positive versus negative sentiment of the daily tweets, and the most popular keywords that were used.

    As a result, one can already attempt to estimate what will be the most anticipated ads for this Sunday, in addition to their expected content.

    Super Chatter: Analyzing Conversations about the Super Bowl on Twitter

    Posted: 6-February-2012, 8:47pm EST

    super_chatter.jpg
    The online dashboard Super Chatter [collemcvoy.com] designed by advertising agency Colle+McVoy acts as a visual overview of the true impact of the Super Bowl event in contemporary social media, and Twitter in particular.

    An interactive timeline not only highlights some of the most important sports scoring events, but aligns them next to all the advertisements that were shown on television. A line graph then maps the rate of tweets-per-minute of those 641,094 tweets that mentioned one of more than 250 specific terms resembling "Super Bowl" (the official hash tag was only used in 4% of all relevant tweets), against a set of predefined terms, such as the popular brands, food and drinks, personalities, or the teams themselves.

    Deluge: How 300.000 Norwegians Move House in a Year

    Posted: 7-February-2012, 10:33pm EST

    deluge_norway.jpg
    The short animation titled "Deluge" [bengler.no] by Even Westvang reveals how public data can be analyzed to reveal potentially interesting patterns. In particular, this movie demonstrates the patterns of 300.000 Norwegians moving house, by cross-referencing the tax records of about 4 million individual Norwegians from 2006 and 2007.

    In the movie, the data is filtered by paramaters like yearly income or age, and a distinction is made between 'incoming' (red) and 'outgoing' (blue) citizens. As a result, one can perceive that elderly people generally move over relatively short distances, while high-earners tend to move out of the big cities to the shores.

    Interestingly, in Norway all the incomes and fortunes of all tax paying individuals are made public every year, which consists of the full name, year of birth, postal code and their attendant financial data.

    Watch the movie below.

    Conveying GE Machine Usage Data: Balancing Art and Visualization

    Posted: 13-February-2012, 12:43pm EST

    fathom_ge.jpg
    Ben Fry's Fathom Information Design has released the video documentation of 2 interactive visualization installations that are meant to appear on large touch screens in the lobby of GE's headquarters in Fairfield, Connecticut. Due to its intended physical setting, the visualization had to work from a distance as well as close by, balancing artistic quality with the fact that the animations were informed by real data, generated by machines in the real world. Accordingly, order, shape, size, direction, and color all have some meaning, and emerging patterns can often be interpreted or evoke thoughts of the actual events and actions that the data signifies.

    The "Powering" visualization is based on the data containing the location and power output from 713 unique gas turbines during 15 successive days. Patterns emerge as turbines that share time zones turn on and off simultaneously, while the according animated line graphs 'roll' towards the center in unison. T

    The "Curing" visualization is based on about 125,530 distinct CT and MR scans that were conducted using GE equipment during a 24-hour period. The globe reveals the geo-location of the scans, while the timelines indicate the number of scans occurring each minute

    Metrography: London Reshaped to Match the Classic Tube Map

    Posted: 14-February-2012, 8:20pm EST

    metrography_london.jpg
    In Metrography [looksgood.de], interaction design students Benedikt Groß [looksgood.de] and Bertrand Clerc [bertrandclerc.com] and presents us with an alternative view on London. What if the street map was reshaped according to the positions of the tube stations as placed on the Tube map?

    The result is a 'warped' or 'morphed' map of London, that highlights the discrepancy between the stylized metro map and the geographically correct depiction. The resulting high-resolution prints can be viewed online in all detail.

    By the way: Groß explored the relation of mental maps and geographic mapping already in a predecessor project titled Vauxhall.
