Visualization of time series data with Processing
Wednesday, 08 February 2012 18:44

The following example shows a visualization of time series data (lightnings of the austrian state Salzburg in 2003) using the Processing library for Java. The screenshot shows an applet which visualizes the state Salzburg as well as its environment and some actually recorded lightnings from Mai 2003. The position of the lightning impacts are converted from real world to screen coordinates to "hit" the respective point on the plane. A time slider on top of the application can be used to navigate within the data.

 

 

We are yet very comfortable with the result but certainly have many things in mind to enhance the visualization. Stay tuned!
