SxSW Check ins

This is a nice visualization of Austin during the sxsw interactive conference.  My first impression was “Wow, neat”, but that quickly subsided to “hmm?”.  I think this is a great example of a visualization that could have been improved with a half hour of work from a real cartographer.

It has some really nice background music, though.  Where are we going to get our background music?

  1. Very nice! I really like the color of the night map. But it would be better if the transition from daylight to night is more natural. For our project, adding this effect would also be great. Readers don’t need refer to text to know the current time.

    The background music makes the visualization elegant and more like artwork.
