Data viz project title
- An iPhone app that draws multiple paths of different potential bike routes over a map of San Francisco. The elevation of the different route segments are shaded in different colors to represent how steep of climb the hills are, and, uniquely, the segments are colored by incline only in the direction of travel. By showing multiple routes at the same time, the hills are visible and your desired type of of ride to your destination can be determined. Do you want to climb hills or ride around them? Now you can see what your route looks like before you go.

This project is a detailed analysis of how low- and high-performing schools have behaved over time. We analyzed these groups under the lens of teacher experience, charter school percentage and raw performance scores.

Project title: UFO Siter
This website plots UFO sighting data onto a map of the U.S. and allows the user to interact with it in various ways. A visitor to the site can see all sightings for all dates, and search for specific sitings by location –“Wichita, KS”, or “Whichita” or “Kansas” for example– or choose from a drop-down menu of State names and saved locations. Clicking on any sighting data point will pop up the full sighting record from the database. Media Search panel preferences allow this sighting’s record details to automatically generate a Search listing from YouTube or Google, and allow the visitor to modify the search terms and rate the search results for relevance. Time line data along the bottom allows the visitor to search for sightings by date, date range, or see a chronological “movie” of sightings as they occurred. Finally, the visitor can enter a new sighting record, ideally with photos and/or video of the sighting if they have any. “Community” aspects of the website (top nav) allow the visitor to read more about sightings and connect with others interested in the subject.

Dataset used: Infochimps Uber GPS logs
Software used: node, d3, polymaps, processing, sqlite, (python, ruby and r for data manipulation)
No work was done with the dataset before the event. In fact, we switched ideas three times yesterday 😛

Particular points of pain: everything realting to GIS.
Remember back when you were a kid? You asked questions. You asked so many questions that your mother had to try very hard not to snap at you. What happened now?
Well, some adults are still curious fellows who asks questions. Just they don’t ask their mother any more. There’s something better now: the internet.
This visualization is a celebration of the sometimes fascinating, sometimes dull, and the sometimes outright disturbing questions people ask. Beware, the questions are uncensored!
