Gephi, an open source graph visualization and manipulation software logstalgia - Project Hosting on Google Code Logstalgia (aka ApachePong) is a website access log visualization tool. Description Logstalgia is a website traffic visualization that replays or streams web-server access logs as a pong-like battle between the web server and an never ending torrent of requests. Requests appear as colored balls (the same color as the host) which travel across the screen to arrive at the requested location. Successful requests are hit by the paddle while unsuccessful ones (eg 404 - File Not Found) are missed and pass through. The paths of requests are summarized within the available space by identifying common path prefixes. Requirements Logstalgia requires a video card supporting OpenGL. As Logstalgia is designed to playback logs in real time you will need a log from a fairly busy web-server to achieve interesting results (eg 100s of requests each minute). An example access log is included. Supported Log Formats NCSA Common Log Format (CLF) "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" Controls Donations Related Software News
Palladio Palladio is a toolset for easy upload and careful investigation of data. It is an intertwined set of visualizations designed for complex, multi-dimensional data. It is a product of the "Networks in History" project that has its roots in another humanities research project based at Stanford: Mapping the Republic of Letters (MRofL). MRofL produced a number of unique visualizations tied to individual case studies and specific research questions. You can see the tools on this site and read about the case studies at republicofletters.stanford.edu. With "Networks in History" we are taking the insights gained and lessons learned from MRofL and applying them to a set of visualizations that reflect humanistic thinking about data.
Skyrails Blog - Skyrails beta youtube video, flickr high-res screenshots ... 2396775983 The screenshots on flickr are orders of magnitude better than the ones you find here. download: ... lsdist.zip To install, just extract the folder to a directory, and run "first.exe". Coming soon: Stereo vision support. Mailing list: I've set up a mailing list, but lack any knowledge on anything other than CSE's manual mailing list. Important Info Press the '~' button (top left of keyboard, just below the escape key) to summon the console. What is it? Skyrails is a social network (or any graph really) visualization system. The main distinguishing point of the system comes from the built in scripting language, the added flexibility of how to represent attributes (nodes can be binded to planes and spheres based on their attributes) and the scriptability of the user interface system. status system requirements:
Screensaver - visualizing the global blogosphere Twingly Screensaver Beta Twingly screensaver is visualizing the global blog activity in real time.

To use the screensaver you need a PC with Windows and a graphics card supporting OpenGL. How to install: Download the installation files by clicking the download button. To use Twingly as the system screensaver: Right click the desktop. What is the Spatial Turn? · Spatial Humanities “Landscape turns” and “spatial turns” are referred to throughout the academic disciplines, often with reference to GIS and the neogeography revolution that puts mapping within the grasp of every high-school student. By “turning” we propose a backwards glance at the reasons why travelers from so many disciplines came to be here, fixated upon landscape, together. For the broader questions of landscape – worldview, palimpsest, the commons and community, panopticism and territoriality — are older than GIS, their stories rooted in the foundations of the modern disciplines.

Skyrails Skyrails is a Social Network and Graph Visualization System with a built-in programming language. The system is not solely aimed at expert users, since through other scripting languages, menus can be built and the system used by a wider audience. Also, as Yose Widjaja affirms, the language is pretty easy to learn. However, because the software is currently on beta mode, there is not much documentation for the language and hence self-learning and guessing is the only way to go for now. Yose says this will change in the future. There's a flickr page with different screenshots of the application and a striking video demo of the tool on YouTube, which shows the Scotland Corporate Interlocks in early 1900.
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. At the moment it supports Git, Mercurial and Bazaar but it is also possible to use it with Subversion (SVN) with a few extra steps. The videos produced by Gource really illustrate how much work goes into projects over time, with each developer ‘shooting a laser’ at each file created / changed / deleted. Creating the videos is fairly simple, I’ll give you a step by step guide how to do it using an SVN repository below. First you will want to grab a copy of Gource and extract the zip file to somewhere easily accessible.
Exploring Big Historical Data: The Historian's Macroscope Welcome to the companion site for Exploring Big Historical Data: The Historian’s Macroscope, published by Imperial College Press. If you want to buy a copy, you can purchase one for $39.00 USD. Feel free to visit our original live-written fully open draft website, which is still online – and if you like what you see, you can always buy the book! On this site you will find code, essays (things we liked from the draft that did not fit), and datafiles that go with our book. The first draft’s interactive visualizations can be found here. •Diversity is vital to digital history, and our readers should consider it an essential additional chapter. Illustrations in the print book are in black-and-white. If you want clickable footnotes (which you probably do!) If you’re curious who we are, you can learn more about us here.
