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!
Created by Alwyn B., this hierarchical tree shows the complex Hero Item recipes for the WarCraft III MOD "Defense of the Ancients". As a fan and a player of the game, Alwyn painstakingly created his own infographic and then posted in on the Internet to share with other players. This makes a fantastic poster!
More than just the item combinations, the poster shows:
- Shows the basic items and how to combine them to form better items.
- Shows where to buy them, and for how much.
- Mini Map that shows shop locations
- Shop Item Layouts

Neat experiment by Dave Bowker over at Designing The News. The idea is to use pictgraphics to visualize news headlines in public places. Specifically in Europe, you could establish a universal set of icons over time that people who speak different languages could interpret and understand.
Enter a Twitter ID (I used my ID: rtkrum), and in real time it will generate a connection wheel built from 100 people that person is following. Hover the mouse over any of the names, and it will show the connections that that person is also following on Twitter.
It takes a few minutes to load the user data.
