The 3D visualization of overwhelming data ;-)
3D scatterplot, bottom view
These are renders of an environment which I created in Bryce - before my SL days. It was my very first encounter with data visualization and it happened in 2005, when I got together with a group of colleagues from various disciplines to collaborate on a project which aimed to develop a strategy for visualizing complex data in a custom created 3D virtual environment. This eventually developed into a poster which we presented at the Towards a Science of Consciousness Conference held in Tucson, in 2006.
In hindsight, now that I am far more familiar with the requirements of the field, there are a lot of problems with this. Probably the biggest one is that the representational system which I worked upon (that was my part of the job) was way too complex. But it is this complexity which made for some good visuals. So, I am putting them here for their pyrotechnical value rather than their scientific valor ;-)...
