Creative Visualization of Data

Face it, data can get boring. But with a little creativity, data can be made to captivate.Alexander Chen created mta.me using HTML5/Javascript. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop. The fun begins when the lines cross each other, or you can interact with it by strumming the lines. Read more about it at Alexander’s blog or play with it for yourself.
