Visualising Subversion with Gource 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! What’s even more interesting is you can easily create the same type of visualisation with your own project using an open-source project called Gource. Gource is a version control visualisation tool developed by Andrew Caudwell. 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!

Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork 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.

Visual Map Of The Internet And Websites' Connectedness This is actually a worthwhile little time waster. Internet-map.net is a website that depicts websites as different sized circles based on the size of their audience, and their relatedness to one another based on their proximity on the map. It has a handy search feature too, so you don't have to go scrolling around to find the site you're looking for. Because otherwise it would be complete shit. Google translation from Russian: Mathematically speaking, the Internet is a two-dimensional map display of links between sites on the Internet.

75+ Tools for Visualizing your Data, CSS, Flash, jQuery, PHP Most people would agree that the old adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” is also true for web based solutions.

The Product Space and the Wealth of Nations 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.

I will ask my Moodle.com people next week about how to make Gource work (we have a face-to-face relationship). They animated 8 years of logs in their visualisation. by pauljacobson Jan 19
