More real-time visualization

Aaron Koblin and Jonathan Harris’s work from a couple of year’s ago may be useful:

Aaron Koblin, tracking flights across the USA.

I love the comparison of patterns between the four cities here.

Also interesting is his project to track FEELINGS via blog posts and visualize it in a project called “We Feel.”

“I develop tools to tell stories.  Not my own stories but stories about other people all around the world.”


A question I may ask, as learned from the Parametric Places course, is: are these tools for analysis or design with their own agency?
See MVDRV Datatown from a good landscape urbanism blog here including valuable design techniques by Tufte, Lynch, MVRDV, and Noli and talk of utilizing GIS.
