The course was introducing the students to new methods and tools for data visualization. Throughout the term the students were given data sets ranging from meteorite data to data on crowdfunding in germany. The students had round about three weeks for every data set to work on. Below are a few examples from those challenges.
Code Red DNA
Visualization of the diffusion of the Code Red computer virus. Showing correlations in time and location.
The amount of meteor sightings and found meteorites has been rising since the middle of the 20st century. Spectacular events connected to meteorites happen aplenty. The media report – and fiction is inspired. We looked into this and collected stories from movies and books to examine them when juxtaposed with real meteorite discoveries.
Visualisation of all fell and found meteorites between 1900 & 2000. The graphic gives a special view on meteorite findings by comparing time and longitude on a radial axis. This kind of visualisation shows the human bias on the physical locations of found meteorites.
The visualization shows the usual classification of meteorites, which is based on the origin of the meteorites parent body. A distinction is made between differentiated and undifferentiated meteorites.
This project is visualizing the nationalities berlin is made up of and the most popular travel destinations. Visually exploring if people in Berlin get to know the countries of their neighbors are coming from.
