Comparing Website Analytics with Gaming and Travel Data

As part of a CPSC 583 course at the University of Calgary, Sam Lu created three distinct visualizations to keep track of personal data, then later combined these visualizations as a whole. The first project visualizes search engine referrals to Sam's personal website. The second project graph EA NHL 12 hockey stats such as the time on ice, number of slap shots taken, and the points scored thought the game. Thirdly, Sam created a Calgary Transit commute log to keep track of where and when transit travel occurred. To tie these projects together, Sam created spheres to represent how the temporal data overlapped. He then created icons to represent the NHL hockey stats.

Immersion

Immersion is an invitation to dive into the history of your email life in a platform that offers you the safety of knowing that you can always delete your data. Just like a cubist painting, Immersion presents users with a number of different perspectives of their email data. It provides a tool for self-reflection at a time where the zeitgeist is one of self-promotion. It provides an artistic representation that exists only in the presence of the visitor. It helps explore privacy by showing users data that they have already shared with others. Finally, it presents users wanting to be more strategic with their professional interactions, with a map to plan more effectively who they connect with. – Immersion Project

LastHistory

We believe that a 'casual information visualization' approach can prove valuable for making this personal information available to their creators. In this paper we analyze the data domain of listening histories and present our findings on their structure and what possible user tasks and available patterns it might contain. Additional contextual information can trigger the memory of the user to reveal the reasons for listening decisions. As a second contribution, we give an overview of LastHistory, a visualization of personal listening his- tories from Last.fm that not only allows sophisticated analysis of the underlying data in a non-threatening way, but is also able to show contextual information in the form of photos and calendar entries to help the user remember this time of his or her life. – Dominikus Baur
