Description

Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data, defined as information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information. The purpose of this project is to develop a set of tools in the form of Pd patches and abstractions that make various data visualization techniques available in Pd. This could include (but not limited to) 2D and 3D cluster visualisation, force-directed graphing, histogram graphing etc.

Resources to start:

Required Skills

  • knowledge and interest in data visualization approaches

  • decent mathematical skills (geometry)

  • reasonable Pd patching skills

  • OpenGL knowledge/ Gem

  • 2D graphics knowledge

Possible Breakdown of Steps

  • Investigate existing collections of abstractions/patches that fit the requirements

  • Identify the set of abstractions/patches that will form the basis of the library

  • Create new abstractions/patches as necessary

  • Package up the abstractions for distribution
