I think Solari boards, like those found in old train stations, are one of the coolest kinds of data visualizations. So I'm making a digital one.

@anbnyc ooooohh nice! What did you make this in?

Would you kind folks mind helping me track down a viz that I remember seeing, but can't find now? Show more

Just released this 3D interactive data vis that renders all 47K buildings in Manhattan. Figured this would be a good group to share it with!

Best on desktop Chrome! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@WNYmathGuy looking forward to seeing your delusions! Er, that didn't come out right.

Since interactive visualisations require sophisticated UI/UX development, I got tons of ideas for rethinking our own concepts from Ashwin Kumar's AI in frontend development article on Medium:

Anybody have strong opinions about visualization options for stock market type trading data? I don't want my personal opinions effect potential answers.

@WNYmathGuy well, it's almost always shown as values over time, with time moving left to right on the x axis. So that's familiar and efficient โ€” if what you're trying to do is show value changes over time. :) But maybe you have something more interesting in mind? Treemaps for market volume or share, network vis for connected companies?

I pulled my playlist data out of spotify a while ago. Here's a chart of each playlist as an interval from when the first and last song were added. Mostly I make playlists and don't update them, but a few, I find new songs to add to years after they started. Y-position doesn't meany anything.

@john wow, John, fantastic. Very excited to read this over the weekend. ๐Ÿ‘
