Research I found on the gender perception of toys, which I will likely use for my social issues project.
Exoplanets mapped out by position in the sky or distance from the sun! I thought it was interesting that they highlight which planets have the potential for life. Nice animated transitions too!
A cool visualization of a Girl Talk album and all of the song samples used to create each track. I think it’s pretty cool to see them all laid out together!
The below record and CD redesigns incorporate new data visualization in the following ways:
-opacity of dots increases towards the center, as they get closer to #1 ranking
-the center circle says “chart #1” around it
-as you hover over a section of a record in a particular year, that year will highlight (a slice of record
-when you hover over or click on a song, the name of the artist (around the outside of the disk) will highlight
Additionally, we wanted to continue to work on our line based visualization by adding in other factors like genre and ranking, allowing the user to switch between options on the top and the bottom of the data visualization, for further exploration.
A pretty cool, physical way of visualizing sound…
I thought this was a really interesting and effective scale shift!
