Unfolding - Interactive Map Library for Processing and Java

Unfolding - Interactive Map Library for Processing and Java
Interaction Events Unfolding enables you to quickly create interactive maps. Basic interactions such as Zoom & Pan are included. More advanced functionality such as Overview+Detail, or multitouch gestures can be easily added. Data Visualization Simply create geo-positioned markers to display data on a map.

featured projects Quantified Other Five weeks of my father's Nike Fuel data Tatelets Generative bracelet based on artworks from Tate Modern timemap - Javascript library to help use a SIMILE timeline with online maps including Google, OpenLayers, and Bing. Timemap.js is a Javascript library to help use online maps, including Google, OpenLayers, and Bing, with a SIMILE timeline. The library allows you to load one or more datasets in JSON, KML, or GeoRSS onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously. By default, only items in the visible range of the timeline are displayed on the map. Version 2.0.1 Now Up! Version 2.0.1 is primarily a maintenance release, fixing a number of small bugs and cleaning up a few things that weren't quite right in v.2.0. Anyone using v.2.0 should probably upgrade to v.2.0.1, as it is more stable and includes very few changes other than bug fixes and new unit tests.

From Processing To Painting I’d been working on using Processing to create these grid patterns using circles of varying diameters for a while now, but moving from the digital world to the physical world is something I first started experimenting with last fall when I was attempting to win a laser cutter. While I love laser cut wood, I wanted to try applying the idea to something different, and it’s been a long time since I put paint on canvas, so… More info on this series of painting (titled annular) can be found on the project page, but the basic process involves running a Processing sketch, using the output to cut stencils, and then painting using the stencils. The Processing sketch outputs a PDF file, which is a vector file easily opened in Inkscape and adjusted to the correct size.

40 Essential Tools and Resources to Visualize Data One of the most frequent questions I get is, "What software do you use to visualize data?" A lot of people are excited to play with their data, but don't know how to go about doing it or even start. Here are the tools I use or have used and resources that I own or found helpful for data visualization – starting with organizing the data, to graphs and charts, and lastly, animation and interaction. Organizing the Data by sleepy sparrow Bert Balcaen I designed and fabricated a lamp using molding and resin casting. I’m sharing my experiences here: this is a step by step documentation of whole process. Along the way I’ll point out what I did well and where I made a mistake.

Creating digital portraits with algorithms Mike Brondbjerg is creative director at Brondbjerg Design and Development. He explains how he uses Processing.js, algorithmic trickery and some SVG to create amazing digital portraits of American Presidents. Who are you and what do you do?

Showcases on Datavisualization Interactively Explore the YOLO Flip 12 Feb 2014 Showcases Animation, Interactive, Process, Sports In preparation of the Winter Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi, we helped the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung publish a long-form article about Iouri Podladtchikov, a professional snowboarder and – since yesterday – freshly baked Olympic gold medalist. To help readers better understand the sport, we created a series of illustrations and an interactive animation.

Sine circle test animation — Blog — Ben Crowder As I’ve been tinkering around with graphics coding, I wanted to figure out how to map a sine wave onto a circle. Here’s how it went down. (Disclaimer: this is all unoptimized code that is almost certainly not the best way to do this. Also, I’m a beginner, so yes, this is very basic stuff.) First off, I started a new Processing sketch and drew a circle:

Datasets on Datavisualization Wikileaks US Embassy Cables 29 Nov 2010 Datasets Infographic, Politics Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. Here's how media outlets strive to make the data more accessible than its original form. For Your Processing 6th January 2018 Video with 7 notes (via littleblackbox on Vimeo) Working with Data in Protovis on Datavisualization Protovis is an open-source Javascript visualization library by the Stanford Visualization Group and has become one of the preferred tools in our arsenal. If you want to get started with the popular toolkit too, Jerome Cukier has a comprehensive tutorial about how to work with data in Protovis. The tutorial is split in five parts covering using (1, 2), sorting (3) and reshaping (4) arrays as well as how to structure data to work with complex structures like treemaps or force-directed layouts (5). For the past year or so I have been dabbling with protovis. Be aware that the content is laser focused on how to deal with data instead of shiny visualization goodness.
