Digg Labs Visualisation (2007)

While transcribing my Sun/Oracle blog to this space,  I coped an article which pointed at now defucnt Digg Labs visualisation tools, I said,

I also took the opportunity to publicise/review some of digglabs visualisation experiments. big spy, stack and swarm.

I have posted the screen shots I used here.
Big Spy talks for itself, it represents on the screen in real-time, which is good because digg is really busy. It optimises the display for popular. Both size and colour are relevant.bigspy-200w
Stack uses flash’s animation to show the popularity of articles, votes drop in on the blobs and change colour, while the most recent articles are scrolled underneath the stack line.

Swarm is another representation that uses flash’s animation to show the relationships between stuff and uses colour and grow/shrink on hover.
