Synopsis: A method for visual exploration of large and multidimensional datasets by navigation in data dimension space using 2D scatterplots and a matrix of scatterplots. News (2009-02-10) ScatterDice demo! - We have made a Java WebStart version of the ScatterDice application which can be run in your web browser. Access the demo page here . (2008-08-27) IEEE InfoVis 2008 best paper - Our paper "Rolling the Dice" on the ScatterDice project and its model, design, and implementation has been named Best Paper at IEEE InfoVis 2008 !
The purpose of this tutorial is two-fold. Number one, we’re going to demonstrate how all of the basic fundamental concepts you’ve learned with Processing (variables, conditionals, loops, functions, objects, arrays) extend to programming in other languages. Second, we’ll see how there are certain types of tasks that you can farm out to a server-side script (in this case, written in PHP) that cannot be done easily inside of your Processing code itself.
Those of you who have read this blog before will know that I do most of my work using Processing , an open-source programming language that was specifically created for artists and designers. It’s easy enough that you can learn the basics a day or two, but powerful enough to use for any number of applications, ranging from interactive installations to architecture to generative visual systems, and beyond. I’ve used it to visualize huge sets of data, to design a 1000 square-metre playground, and to create hundreds of small digital ‘sketches’.
