Time and Place

We’ve had an ongoing interest in activity data from projects with the Nike FuelBand (Year in NikeFuel and NikeFuel Weather Activity) to more recently with Fathom Watch Faces for Android Wear. This work has inspired me to track every place I’ve been and how I’ve moved between locations with the Moves app. With about twenty months of data on my hands I began parsing, analyzing and creating sketches.

This project was a great way to put my preliminary knowledge of D3.js into practice. I’d also recommend the book Interactive Data Visualization for the Web by Scott Murray which was helpful for grasping the fundamentals of D3.js.

Check out the project here.
