Data Centric Universe: then and now

 

 

For Popular Science I have created a visualization that has been published in both the magazine, and as an interactive version for both the iPad and the web. The visualization shows the known universe of 1950 and todays known universe (2011). Since 1950 modern telescopes have been used, and 93% of the known universe has been discovered after 1950.

The visualization was built in Processing, and then turned into a zoomable image that uses OpenLayers.

Global Agenda Survey 2011


I’ve had the honor to collaborate with the fabulous Moritz Stefaner on a project for the World Economic Forum. We have created several interactive visualizations that allow users to explore the Global Agenda Survey 2011, a survey held each year by the World Economic Forum to discover the most important trends in the world according to its council members.

Except for the network graph, the visualization is compatible down to IE6. We achieved this by using raphael.js, underscore.js. The network has been created in d3.js.
