            Seeing and understanding data is richer than creating a collection of queries, dashboards, and workbooks. We'll see how visual and cognitive science explain what makes data visualization so deeply satisfying. Why does a collection of bars, lines, colors, and boxes become surprisingly powerful and meaningful? How does fluid interaction with data views multiply our intelligence? Three decades of research into the beautiful science of data visualization explain why history have converged at this moment, and why interactive data visualization has brought us to the verge of an exciting new revolution.

                I used 17 different global data sets in making this 5 minute shot for the planetarium movie Habitat Earth at the California Academy Of Sciences, turning the data from grey-scale still images and millions of lines of CSV data points into colorful, moving graphics that visualize for the audience some of the invisible connections that tie together distant parts of our world. Data sets used in the creation of this shot include: Satellite measured CO2 absorption on land and oceans, an indicator of seasonally varying plant and algae growth: - floating point Lat-Long images at 8 day intervals 2003-2013 - Land and ocean data were at different spatial resolutions, requiring some innovative image processing at the shorelines to avoid artifacts. Whale tracking tags - several thousand data points from dozens of individual whales: - CSV files with variable reporting frequency over a 10 year span Container ship tracking: - CSV files with millions of data points on thousands of different ships over a 12 day span NASA Blue Marble and Black Marble - High quality, cloud free composites of Earth; daytime and nighttime images TerraMetrics high resolution satellite images for close ups of California Migratory birds: Osprey and Turkey Vultures - CSV files from different researchers with changing tracking technologies over approximately 10 years. Airline Flights - 72 hour collection of transponder data - CSV files for thousands of planes with millions of data points Agricultural land use (green squares) and Population data (yellow): - Lat-Long global images from 10,000 BC to present at varying time steps and resolutions Milky Way: The stars you see are actually the real sky, properly positioned and oriented - A high resolution (10k) image of the Milky Way and night sky that had to be re-oriented to account for the tilt of Earth's axis. - Because many of the stars are only as large as a single pixel, I had to develop special techniques for processing the image through the multiple steps required to produce the final image to avoid repeated degrading of the image. Digital Elevation Map (DEM): used to define the boundary between land and ocean and for shading terrain - Lat-Long floating point data at 1 minute resolution (21k x 10k image) - Higher resolution DEM data from a second source was used for close ups of California One of the challenges of this shot, besides the number and variety of data sets, was properly handling time in the shot. When you see whales and birds migrating, the CO2 absorption for the land and oceans is properly synced with them, so you can observe the relation between the onset of Spring in New England with it's increase in plant productivity, and the return of migrating birds from South America. Similarly, when you see airline flights arriving in Europe as darkness spreads across the continent, you're seeing airline flights from 6-9 PM. If you look closely you can see the rise of airline activity in the morning and the drop off after midnight. Keeping all of this synchronized and planning out the length and pacing of the shot required careful attention to detail. Some of this data was clean and ready to use, but other sets contained bad data points that required pre-processing before being converted into geometry and graphics. This was done with custom python scripts I wrote. The primary tools used for this shot were Houdini for creating geometry from the data and for rendering, and Nuke for compositing and image processing. Two notes: The show was created for projection on a 180 degree planetarium dome and the original images are thus in a fish eye format. A flat screen version of the shot was never created and what you see here is a crop from the fish eye, so there is a small amount of distortion, but more importantly, you are only seeing a crop and have lost additional peripheral imagery. Please keep this in mind if the framing seems odd at times. The other thing to keep in mind is that there is narration in the show, but due to licensing sensitivities, I am unable to use the narration track here.

                  Intel Labs is one of the driving forces in technological innovation worldwide. With their alternative power architecture, they're bringing low-cost, powerful solar power to rural communities that don't have reliable electricity - allowing children to get the most out of their education and break the cycle of poverty. JESS3 created a short animated video to explain the concepts behind this technology and illustrate its enormous benefit to society.

                    To illustrate the findings in the World Bank's 2014 report "Adding Up the Benefits of Climate Action," we created a short animation and an in-depth interactive infographic based on the report's findings. Our visualizations don't just convey the facts and statistics surrounding climate change; these simple graphics help users understand the importance and urgency of this issue on an immediate, visceral level.

                      Data generated from computer models are usually smooth, continuous, and clean. But the data that feeds into those models are often messy. This visualization shows the differences that can often occur between observed data and modeled data. The base visualization was created by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Scientific Visualization Studio. I've edited it to add a datestamp, slowed it down, and labeled it for easier understanding. Observations from satellites in the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) network feed into the Goddard Earth Observing System, Model 5 (GEOS-5). GEOS-5 combines those measurements with other environmental observations, refining its digital model of the Earth's atmosphere. This particular time period is during February 2010, when record snowfall blanketed much of the United States' east coast.
