2D Radix Sort

Source A 2D visualization of a radix sort. This is unique in that most visualizations for sorting are done technically one dimensional. If you watch the video this is pulled from, these are some really amazing visualizations

CityVR: Visualization of Code

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJU9FYlp6oU) I’m currently at a conference in Vancouver right now in a workshop for VR and AR, and this one speaker had an application where he visualized difference classes by using a building structure, and the ability to look at… Continue Reading →

Periodic Table of Visualization Methods

I guess that considering… Continue Reading →

curriculum mapping needs infovis

This is a great example of how data is used at the institutional level – the university is working on mapping curricula in all faculties, to document what kinds of things are done in each course/program/department/faculty, and how that maps… Continue Reading →

Hurricane Irma Visualization

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/national/how-big-is-hurricane-irma/?utm_term=.fd05b9c4ecf8 This is a visualization of hurricane Irma compared to other hurricanes. Quantitatively hurricane Katrina had also carried similar energy in 2005. But the wind speed of Hurricane Irma was quite strong breaking the record for consecutive hours at category 5. But… Continue Reading →
