(http://www.lolking.net/summoner/na/29562954/Dimsum1080#/profile) I’m a pretty obsessive gamer – the more stressed out I am, the more I game to try and alleviate that stress. This graph shows my progress in League of Legends from February until now. That huge spike at… Continue Reading →
(https://www.facebook.com/gamersboard/videos/1742871752413182/) The picture is actually completely meaningless without watching the video, so please do watch the video 😀 but this is a visualization of music by using drawings of the bike travelling over various lines. I think this is probably… Continue Reading →
This photo quality is horrible, but I took it on a drive home a couple weeks ago. I thought the sunset looked was absolutely beautiful, and made a really nice colour scheme with the sky.
(www.netflix.com) Netflix actually has some of the easiest ways to browse through videos that I’ve ever found. It organizes everything in a way that is efficient, yet possible to get more information if needed. Goals for an information visualization!
(https://photo-viewbug.s3.amazonaws.com/media/mediafiles/2014/02/06/10372651_large1300.jpg) The eyes of this cat are absolutely stunning to me – however, if an information visualization was represented as those eyes, it would look amazing, but no information can be gleaned from it. I’ve been working on visualizations all… Continue Reading →
(http://assets2.ignimgs.com/2016/04/22/pyrejpg-6d9f3e_1280w.jpg) This image is actually from one of my all time favourite games – Pyre. I remember playing games by the same maker and thinking that, “Wow, I feel like their art style could be better.” However, when I was… Continue Reading →
(https://staticdelivery.nexusmods.com/mods/110/images/54466-1-1401582271.gif) I was talking with one of my coworkers yesterday about the level of detail needed within a visualization, and whether we could reduce detail in order to improve performance. While we were having our discussion, he brought up how… Continue Reading →
(https://github.com/d3/d3-scale-chromatic) I was talking to a professor yesterday and we started discussing colour themes for using in visualizations. He also brought in the idea of using hue and saturation as two different visual variables, which brings me to this image…. Continue Reading →
(https://www.upwork.com/hiring/design/what-is-3d-visualization-who-does-it-why-do-you-need-it/) I think the fact that they call the second image a visualization is not really accurate – from what I can tell, it does not provide any actual information about anything, just the fact that it looks cool.
(http://www.stat.ufl.edu/~aa/cda/data.html) Found this dataset while looking for a dataset to use in my project. It reminds me that even if this was created into a great visualization, the data that supports it would be absolutely worthless and bias.
(https://design.tutsplus.com/articles/how-to-draw-animals-cats-and-their-anatomy–vector-17417) Steps to drawing a cat, starting from bone structure to muscles to actual cat. Understanding is an extremely individual thing – I know friends who are much better at drawing animals using the steps shown above. For me, I… Continue Reading →
(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a8/The_Dress_%28viral_phenomenon%29.png) This dress was an internet phenomenon a couple years ago. The idea that so many people had so many conflicting opinions about the simple colours of a dress makes me think that data visualization is the same way –… Continue Reading →

While this graph shows some interesting results, it makes me wonder if… Continue Reading →
