A Visual History of Urbanization

This map shows a 5,700-year timelapse of the world's cities being born one-by-one, starting with the first known city, Eridu, in 3700 BC. The data is from one of the coolest academic studies I've come across in a long time, which compiled a comprehensive dataset of the world's cities and their historic populations, from 3700 BC to 2000 AD.

rofo.ca - a geo/social network visualization of the Rob Ford saga.

The Rob Ford story has been a wild one, but there's so many characters that it's hard to remember them all. I'm a social psychology PhD student studying memes, and I've gotten deep into social network analysis over the past 2 years. Naturally, I decided to find out whether I could apply social network methods to the Rob Ford story. The result is rofo.ca, which displays many of the people, places, events, and phone calls that have shown up in newspapers and police reports. rofo.ca can serve as a complement to Robyn Doolittle's book, Crazy Town, and to the other reporting that has covered Rob Ford.

Market Music (The stock market as a reggae song)

I have completed a new fun data art project: I translated the ups and downs of the S&P 500 for the year into a reggae-ish song, while an animation represents the data visually and in sync with the music. It's been a record year for the S&P 500 -- and now you can hear it! [more inside]

Sixty Seconds of Salary

An animated data visualization I designed in association with CNNMoney went live this morning. It shows and compares salaries for different people (Kobe Bryant, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a minimum wage worker, a physician, etc), accumulating in real-time for 1 minute. Watch the disparity grow second by second!

Visualizing the Web Index

Today you might have noticed Tim Berners-Lee and the Web Foundation (previously) announcing the launch of the Web Index, a global ranking for measuring the benefits and impact of the Web on the world's nations and peoples. If you've visited the website, you might also have played with the visualizations, brought to you by a couple of Mefites.

The Weather Wheel

A slowly rotating circular graphic reveals relative weather data for 50 cities across the globe. Cities are organized according to highest average annual temperature, and precipitation levels animate month to month. Mostly just eye candy, I suppose.
