In My Dreams

October 26 “Dreams are a subject of mystery in everyone’s lives. We may never be able to decode our dreams fully and attempting to do so is somewhat of a never-ending task. While I find dream interpretation interesting, I am… Continue Reading →

Vitruvian Man

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvian_Man) The Vitruvian man is a visualization made by Leonardo da Vinci based on the correlations of ideal human proportions as described by the roman architect Vitruvius. Drawn by Leonardo da Vinci, it demonstrates a blend of methematics and art… Continue Reading →

Minotaur Maze

(http://paigeentwistle.com/greek-myths/theseus-and-the-minotaur/) According to the myth King Minos would lock his enemies within his maze to be devoured by the minotaur. Interestingly enough, differently from other “mazes”, the one used by Minos was circular and actually more of a labyrinth than… Continue Reading →

Red Black Trees

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red%E2%80%93black_tree) A red black tree is a type of self balancing search tree. Differently from the standard AVL tree, red black trees have an extra bit that represents the color of the node. These colors are used as an extra… Continue Reading →

3D Trees

One of the ideas I’ve been exploring lately is trees in three dimensions. I thought this could be a way to incorporate some of my previous ideas with some new more “vis”-y ideas. I’m playing with the idea of building… Continue Reading →

Progress Update

Just a small update on the 3D update for my visualization. You can view the whole board through time and toggle certain colours on and off to see where patterns were being created. Additionally, you can make the whole object… Continue Reading →

Lego Store

Visualization as a sales tactic. The Lego store in Chinook has this display where you hold a box set of lego up to a camera. The screen on the wall displays a 3D put together version of the lego set… Continue Reading →

This piece called the History of Infographics, details important information visualizations from 1630. I think some of these have made appearances on this blog, so I’d say it includes pretty good examples. One thing that I wish they did was… Continue Reading →

volumetric data visualization

We’ve seen the Citi volumetric data visualization prototype before, but this sample image resonates with me for how I might make my data project visible in 3D space (and interactive). via http://8ninths.com/case-study/citi-holographic-workstation/

Visualizing Large Graphs

Source This company essentially works with processors and developing them for use in machine learning applications. This graph representation has around 3mil nodes. I like the organic feeling it has to it, and the perception of an almost primitive life form.

Emotional Range Chart

(https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_emotions) This wheel was developed by Robert Plutchik and is used to illustrate different emotions in a straightforward way, while allowing the measuring of emotional ranges. He suggested 8 bipolar emotions and color coded them to facilitate their association. Although… Continue Reading →

High dimensional Data Visualization

https://colah.github.io/posts/2015-01-Visualizing-Representations/ This is a visualization attempt done on the MNIST dataset which was created by NIST for storing binary images of handwritten digits. To visualize how artificial neural network trains and to classify these images it requires visualization of a very… Continue Reading →
