dataviz using physics

Making use of the open data supplied by the city of Ghent I wondered if I could get better insight by visualising the data interactively. I added physics to the data points so I could assign parameters to be influenced by neighbouring datapoints, and this could dynamically change in time.

date: 2012
software: processing

The result was promising but I couldn’t find anyone at the city administration with enough processing knowledge to make use of it, and as it was a hobby project I had to stop it.

I have two dedicated blogposts here and here to detail the process & concept
