So I went and watched the Olympic Torch leave Plymouth today and captured the moment it went along Coburg street
I love this
So after over 2 years, I’ve finally put my videos up from the Craftivism exhibition that I was a part of here. Enjoy
For this visualisation I’ve taken the literal translation of the feed. There’s a site in the States that provides a feed of GPS data on various routes throughout the country. I decided to use the data for the LA Metro route for no other reason than it seems to have the most amount of data and is updated fairly regularly. So, I extract the GPS coordinates along with the heading and every 4 seconds show the potential view that the bus driver will see……assuming that he happened to be at that point the same time as the Google Streetview car was
This week I’m using another i-DAT feed. This is from the Eco-OS project. The feed consists of data from ecoids installed around north devon. I’m using a humidity reading from one of them with multi-coloured drops to visualise the moisture in the air. The smaller the reading, the less drops there are.
So for a change I’ve gone back to using the Arch-OS feed, this time taking the current wind speed. I read an article on how if you draw a line perpendicular from the midpoint of each of the sides of a pentagon, you get 6 sub pentagons. The article had a really nice tutorial for displaying this. I took it one step further and added some animation.
This is something I had running on the GreenScreen for a while and is a visualisation of the Arch-OS feed (www.arch-os.com/livedata/). The sketch reads the feed and uses the values to change the colours. If you click and hold the mouse down you will see the negative version……which i happen to think looks quite nice
