AMAZING DATA VISUALISATIONS

I'm loving this work by Aaron Koblin of Google Creative Lab, visualizing Amsterdam's SMS Messages. Data visualisation is my big thing right now, and was impressed at the cleverness and beauty of this.

And this work looks at Yahoo search data through time around the world. The search query is in the top left hand side of the screen, and the time and date in the top right hand side of the screen. Watch how different parts of the world light up when certain search queries are tracked. Watch for India when cricket appears, and the east coast of America when Miss Teen USA is queried. Very cool
