Visual thinking: Visualizations
When a droplet falls into shallow water, it creates a crown or "coronet". This droplet simulation was calculated using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) . SPH is one of the most impressive-looking fluid simulation techniques.

Anatoly Zenkov provides this nifty tool ( Mac and PC ) to track your mouse pointer. Really simple. Just start it, let it run, minimize the window, and carry on as usual. In the end, you get this image that looks something like a Pollock. Circles show areas where the pointer didn't move while the tracks show movement. The above is my own activity during the past couple of hours.
Enhancing the Visualization of Characteristic Structures in Dynamical Systems by H. Löffelmann and E.
The concept of proximity formalizes the intuitive idea that the ability of a country to produce a product depends on its ability to produce other ones. For example, a country with the ability to export apples will probably have most of the conditions suitable to export pears. Unfortunately this intuitive definition of proximity is, very cumbersome to measure. It requires quantifying the overlap between the set of markets related to each product. On the paper "The Product Space Conditions the Development of Nations", published at Science magazine , the authors explain how they've measured proximity by using an outcome based method founded on the assumption that similar products are more likely to be exported in tandem.
Found these amazing maps today which visualize the economics of nations from Albania to Zimbabwe. The maps are available in vector-format (EPS and PDF) showing data in 1985 and 2000: Author(s): C. A. Hidalgo.
Gource is a software version control visualization tool. See more of Gource in action on the Videos page. Introduction Software projects are displayed by Gource as an animated tree with the root directory of the project at its centre.
Over the weekend I stumbled across a video link , released (I assume) by Flickr. The video is a visualisation of the last 7 years of commits into the Flickr Subversion repository. Wow, there’s a lot of work been done to Flickr over the past 7 years!
