A father knitted his baby’s first year of sleep pattern data into a blanket - The Verge Jul 2019
"Seung Lee has created a tangible, very soft representation of his baby’s first year of sleep patterns in the form of a knitted blanket. Lee collected the sleep data by manually logging it with the Baby Connect app, and used JavaScript and Python to convert the data to visualize the knitting pattern. He then built a browser-based HTML/Javascript tool that kept track of the stitch colors and allowed him to reference it wherever he was knitting from. The result is The Sleep Blanket, a beautiful keepsake that tells the story of the baby and parents’ first year together."

"The precision of knitting makes it a great medium for data visualization, such as the time when a German commuter marked all the times her train was delayed in a rail delay scarf."

The quest to conquer Earth’s space junk problem, Nature news, Sep 2018
"Zombie satellites, rocket shards and collision debris are creating major traffic risks in orbits around the planet. Researchers are working to reduce the threats posed by more than 20,000 objects in space. "

(great animation from ESA, and Nature infographic)

"Several teams are trying to improve methods for assessing what is in orbit, so that satellite operators can work more efficiently in ever-more-crowded space. Some researchers are now starting to compile a massive data set that includes the best possible information on where everything is in orbit. Others are developing taxonomies of space junk — working out how to measure properties such as the shape and size of an object, so that satellite operators know how much to worry about what’s coming their way. And several investigators are identifying special orbits that satellites could be moved into after they finish their missions so they burn up in the atmosphere quickly, helping to clean up space. "

Prototype app can make spectrum visible — PolicyTracker: the spectrum management newsletter
""HertzViz," an open-data app developed during a May hackathon sponsored by French spectrum regulator ANFR, makes some frequencies visible in order to help construction companies avoid blocking telecoms and internet communications with their equipment."

"The idea behind the app is to make visible specific frequencies, from 1.4 GHz to 70 GHz, which are easily disrupted by buildings, equipment and other objects, said Grange-Piras. Data from the ANFR and all French telecoms providers on, among other things, precise frequencies, projections for where they are emitted and received, and geographic coordinates allowed the team behind the app to map the different frequencies on Google Earth and pick them up on a mobile phone. The different colours in the photo below represent different operators."

Discover stories within data using SandDance, a new Microsoft Research project - March 2016
"Data can be daunting.

But within those numbers and spreadsheets is a wealth of information. There are also stories that the data can tell, if you’re able to see them. SandDance, a new Microsoft Garage project from Microsoft Research, helps you visually explore data sets to find stories and extract insights. It uses a free Web and touch-based interface to help users dynamically navigate through complex data they upload into the tool."

The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World "ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World reconstructs the time cost and financial expense associated with a wide range of different types of travel in antiquity. The model is based on a simplified version of the giant network of cities, roads, rivers and sea lanes that framed movement across the Roman Empire. It broadly reflects conditions around 200 CE but also covers a few sites and roads created in late antiquity."

Watch Four Years of Oil Drilling Collapse in Seconds | Bloomberg Business - Business, Financial & Economic News, Stock Quotes
via Robert McKenzie, Mar 2015 "The crash in oil prices kicked off intense debate over when, and how, American producers would react. So far they’re still cranking out oil, but there are signs that a slowdown is looming. Chief among them: the record drop-off in drilling for new oil. The animation below shows the deployment of drilling rigs since 2011, culminating recently in a sudden collapse."

Dr. Cody Dunne speaks about Network Motif Simplification at the recent CHI 2013 conference in Paris, France --
"His paper with Prof. Ben Shneiderman at CHI 2013, “Motif simplification: improving network visualization readability with fan, connector, and clique glyphs“, demonstrates a novel method for improving the quality of network visualizations. Common network motifs appear frequently in networks. In network motif simplification these patterns are removed and replaced with simpler composite images"

Beautiful Maps, and the Lies They Tell, An Op-Ed From Runkeeper - Feb 2014
Recently the Flowing Data blog released a series of captivating maps created using public running routes from RunKeeper. Many media outlets picked up the maps, and local newspapers were happy to see a reflection of their hometowns. But tension arose around what the maps meant. The Flowing Data editor suggested that the maps could be used by public officials for city planning. Meanwhile, The Washington Post’s Know More blog suggested the maps proved that only rich people use apps for fitness. One major problem with each of these arguments was that they assumed that the maps were correct.

The paper, which was recently published the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, looked at 1.5 million responses gathered from five different online surveys and assessed respondents across five key personality traits: Openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism."

Sir, Iran is backing Assad. Gulf states are against Assad! Assad is against Muslim Brotherhood. Muslim Brotherhood and Obama are against General Sisi. But Gulf states are pro-Sisi! Which means they are against Muslim Brotherhood! Iran is pro-Hamas, but Hamas is backing Muslim Brotherhood! Obama is backing Muslim Brotherhood, yet Hamas is against the U.S.! Gulf states are pro-U.S. But Turkey is with Gulf states against Assad; yet Turkey is pro-Muslim Brotherhood against General Sisi. And General Sisi is being backed by the Gulf states! Welcome to the Middle East and have a nice day. KN Al-Sabah, London EC4, U.K.

re:log - Besucherstromanalyse per re:publica W-LAN
via "re:log [] by German data designers OpenDataCity reveals the movements of about 6,700 different electronic devices during re:publica 2013, a prestigious European conference on the topic of Digital Society. A dynamic map of the conference location shows the approximate locations of the devices when they were connected to the local WiFi hotspots. An interactive timeline underneath allows to explore the dynamic changes over time, while a rectangular area can be drawn to more specifically highlight and follow a smaller amount of dots. The visualization was based on tracking the MAC addresses of the devices according to the WiFi hotspot they were connected to. This data, which can be downloaded, was fully anonymized, yet the authors mention their desire to allow people to look up their own MAC address in the future."

What Intersections Would Look Like in a World of Driverless Cars - Technology - The Atlantic Cities
“There would be an intersection manager,” Stone says, “an autonomous agent directing traffic at a much finer-grain scale than just a red light for one direction and a green light for another direction.” Because of this, we won’t need traffic lights at all (or stop signs, for that matter). Traffic will constantly flow, and at a rate that would probably unnerve the average human driver. The researchers have modeled just how this would work, as you can see in the animation below.

Yet in the past, many more states shifted between the Democratic and Republican parties.

Chart Focus: Mapping globalization - McKinsey Dec 2011
"No more than 25 percent of economic activity is truly global, yet visions of a borderless planet entrance many senior executives. To grasp the realities of a world where distance and differences still matter, they should develop “rooted” maps, which correct the misimpression that a viewer’s vantage point doesn’t influence the way things look.

The starting point for rooted maps is to create a reference map depicting your industry environment, but not your own company’s or country’s place in it. An executive at a film studio, for example, might develop a map in which the size of countries reflects their total box office revenues and the color depicts the market share of domestic movies."
