Jaime Arvizu, a student at the Vancouver Film School, sent me a link to this infographic video that he and his team mates (Tyler Lemermeyer and Leo Aguiar) created for their Motion Design class. You can find a high resolution version at Jaime's blog.
Thanks for sending this in Jaime, I love it!
Very similar to the Flight Patterns video I posted back in October 2007, this is a video showing all commercial flight in the world over a 24-hour period. The previous video was only the U.S., but this one shows the entire world. It also shows the day/night areas and you can see the increase in air traffic as dawn rises around the world. Its from the Zhaw School of Engineering in Zurich.

Our friends over at XPLANE have done a fabulous video explaining what led up to the recent credit crisis in the U.S. economy. A great job simplifying a complex problem.
Thanks Parker, and great job to your team!
From GOOD magazine, they created an infographic video about Vampire Energy, all of the energy used by electronics in your house while you are not actively using them. The chart itself from the magazine is fairly simple chart, but I really like it. It's effective getting the message across with simple graphics.
Really neat promotional video for Hybrid Medical Animation. These guys do some amazing work.
Really cool use of visualization tools to create this music video for Radiohead's "House of Cards".
Radiohead just released a new video for its song "House of Cards" from the album "In Rainbows".
No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images: Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR. Geometric Informatics scanning systems produce structured light to capture 3D images at close proximity, while a Velodyne Lidar system that uses multiple lasers is used to capture large environments such as landscapes. In this video, 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute produced all the exterior scenes.
Watch the making-of video to learn about how the video was made and the various technologies that were used to capture and render 3D data
This visualization, called code_swarm, shows the history of commits in a software project. A commit happens when a developer makes changes to the code or documents and transfers them into the central project repository. Both developers and files are represented as moving elements. When a developer commits a file, it lights up and flies towards that developer. Files are colored according to their purpose, such as whether they are source code or a document. If files or developers have not been active for a while, they will fade away. A histogram at the bottom keeps a reminder of what has come before.Thanks Alwyn for sending in the link!

Alisa Miller, head of Public Radio International, talks about why -- though we want to know more about the world than ever -- the US news media is actually showing less. She uses WorldMapper to communicate her point about the state of today's news in the US.
