For my data visualization class, we were asked to visualize the New York Times Newswire API. This is a quick demo mapping the hour of the day to the number of ny times posts for each category. You can select single categories by clicking on the buttons and you can click and drag horizontally to rotate the center graphic. One of my first attempts at using papervision and it went pretty smooth, but the coordinate system is the opposite to that of the native 3D engine in Flash, OpenFrameworks and Processing. Not that I didn’t understand it, just not used to it.
Check out the quick demo.
