The Opte Project

The Opte Project
This project was created to make a visual representation of a space that is very much one-dimensional, a metaphysical universe. The data represented and collected here serves a multitude of purposes: Modeling the Internet, analyzing wasted IP space, IP space distribution, detecting the result of natural disasters, weather, war, and esthetics/art. This project is free and represents a lot of donated time, please enjoy. The Opte Project was my first gift to the world and in the sleepless nights developing the software that traced all the routes of the Internet, I never thought it would touch so many people. Today the image has been used free of charge across the globe and is part of the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Boston Museum of Science. It has been used in countless books, media, and even movies.

What D3.js is Not I have played with D3.js quite a bit recently. After exploring its API and building a rather complex chart, I come to realize that I have misunderstood D3 for a long time. It’s not only me, after talking to my friends, they also have misconceptions regarding D3. So I’ve decided to write this post to clear some of the common misunderstandings. D3 is Not a Charting Library Vizster: Visualizing Online Social Networks VizsterVisualizing Online Social Networks Jeffrey Heer – jheer@cs.berkeley.edu Professor Marti Hearst InfoSys 247 – Information Visualization University of California, Berkeley Spring Semester, 2004 Vizster is an interactive visualization tool for online social networks, allowing exploration of the community structure of social networking services such as friendster.com [4], tribe.net [12], and orkut [10].

Life Mirrors Art Mirrors Life - Skyrail Social Network Visualisation On my travels last week I came across this seriously cool new social network visualisation system called Skyrails. What I find particularly exciting about it is that the output looks like something out of the pages of Masamune Shirow’s “Ghost in the Shell” flying through the virtual noosphere. Whilst the utility of such visualisations are still questionable it’s always good to see innovation in this area and makes my own attempts look tame in comparison! “Noosphere (aka metaconsciousness): Human communication and interaction may eventually advance to the stage where even conscious thought may be globalized and massively shared. This will lead to the rise of the so-called noosphere.” Life mirroring art or art mirroring life?

The 37 best tools for data visualization It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone. And nowadays, there's plenty of free graphic design software to help you do just that.
