i used to play with legos for hours upon hours. now, it’s buildings in san francisco. these are building footprints in the financial district, scaled and colored by height. brainstorming potential uses for this data. (three.js, d3.js)
found some topographic data for mars (MOLA dataset), made a 3d map. the live version (shown in the first picture) is available to explore at http://maps.stamen.com/mars. i’ll be writing a blog post about the data and the process soon. (three.js)
3D MAPS! outtakes and experimentation from my first major project for STAMEN! see the live version at here.stamen.com. please view source and steal it and build awesome things! i’ll be posting a ton of these screenshots over the next couple days, so bear with me. (tilestache, three.js/webgl, polymaps)
maps of features on the surface of the moon, with colors representing size of the feature. the latter image’s colors are non-contiguous since the vectors are stitched together and the color scales are localized to the individual vectors/pieces of the moon— a nice mistake. (qgis)
big green-to-red cells are doctors. each smaller contained red circle is a person who died, with drugs prescribed by those doctors (hydrocodone, morphine, etc) in their system. the clusters are a result of doctors connected by a death (or deaths). large clusters may suggest doctors who prescribe medication liberally, or someone going to multiple doctors for the same prescriptions. names redacted. work from an old job that never got published.
