I’ve recently been working on a project with my friend Jennifer Gardy, whose insights into epidemiology and data modeling led me to build Just Landed.

Open Science, H1N1, Processing, and the Google Spreadsheet API

Jennifer is currently working at the BC Centre for Disease Control where, among other things, she’s been looking at data related to swine flu genomics. She came to me with an interesting idea for visualizing data related to historical flu strains, and I thought it might be an interesting project for several reasons. First, I’ve been doing a lot of reading and thinking around the concept of open science and open research, and thought that this project might be a good chance to test out some ideas. Similarly, I am very interested in the chance to use Processing in a scientific context (rather than an artistic one) and I hope this might be a way to introduce my favourite tool to a broader audience.

The project is just getting started, so I don’t have a lot of results to share (a screenshot of the initial stages of the tool is above). Data Visualization and Infographics Examples and Resources.

In many cases when users download data they get multiple records for each country; one record for each year for each data point. In order to bring this data into GIS, the data set needs to be re-arranged, so that there is only one record for each country with multiple columns for years.

SVG Crowbar

Because SVGs are resolution independent, it’s great for when you want to use web technologies to create documents that are meant to be printed (like, maybe on newsprint). It was created with d3.js in mind, but it should work fine no matter how you choose to generate your SVG. The Bookmarklet After you’ve installed the bookmarklet, you can execute it on any page. Go ahead and try it out on this crazy map. (You can click on the link instead to test it on this page immediately.) Update Some users reported that styles were not stored with the SVG files, so we added a new version that should work everywhere. Notes Pixels will map to points when opening in Illustrator.

Dancing with Data « Quasipartikel. Last Sunday I gave a small workshop at the MapBox office, where I showed new findings I’ve discovered while working on my last visualization project.

Dancing with Data « Quasipartikel

We turned a collection of countries into a dance of dots, each dot referring to a country in the collection. In other words: We created a simple animated Scatterplot. The goal was to implement a data-driven visualization where the output image is determined by the data and visualization state, such as filters and selected variables. Once users modify either the state or the data, the visualization gets updated accordingly using smooth transitions between states.
