This is a project developed with Processing that aiming to solve a interesting question.
The question is how to find the spy in a special way with a huge amount of data that records 60 men’s everyday activities. The data includes working, absent, entering the confidential room and so on.
What I did and learned:
We choose processing for the purpose of data visualization. This application read tens of thousands of data records and show them in real time. During the running process, more and more suspicious data will result in color changes as shown in this picture.
After reading all the data, the spy will be marked conspicuously.
Kind of similar as Unity script, Processing has a draw function that is looping. So reading data in real time is a challenging problem for the programming. I managed to finish this part with some optimization.
This is a really interesting project that shows me the charming field of data visualization.
