Research and Data Visualization, 2011

Concept, design and programming of a data visualization on a multi-touch wall display. The prototype was built as an exploration tool of Berlin’s live music scene on an interactive map. It allows to browse all of Berlin’s gigs and spot trends over time.

Each venue is represented by a circle varying in size and color, depending on the amount of visitors and the genre of the artists playing there. By dragging the timeline users can travel through history. Long-term trends as well as weekly and seasonal patterns can be spotted. To get a closer look, the data can be filtered by genre or details on specific clubs can be called up.
