Ethnicity in the US in 3D

By |March 27th, 2015|

Ethnic groups in the US are distributed unevenly across the nation. The animations below show where they are located and how large they are in relationship to each other.  We looked at five different broad ethnic groups: Europeans, East & South Asians, Hispanic and Portuguese and African American.  The ‘Other’ group includes all other groups including Native Americans.  We used the registered voter data from L2 Political to do this ethnic analysis.

Interactive 3D Environments – Bring Big Data to Life

By |March 24th, 2015|

At Mooonshadow we’re continuing to push the envelope regarding 3D visualizations of big data in geospatial environments. Later this year we plan to release new features that will empower users to leverage our patented Ephemeris database technology and WebGL to create 3D models in their web browsers that visualize voter data, census/population data and client data over online maps.

These interactive 3D environments bring data to life in new and exciting ways, providing a deeper understanding of the relationships between data attributes. Users can literally “fly through” hundreds of millions of data records in real-time, create animated transitions and control a […]

Population Data as 3D Organic Structures

By |January 18th, 2015|

Here’s a thing that has intrigued me for years: wouldn’t it be cool if we could convert our population databases with hundreds of millions of records into 3D models and fly through them.

Over the last few months we – finally – developed the technology to convert big databases into 3D models in a matter of seconds. After the model has been converted you can ‘fly’ through it in real time. We are using OpenStreetMaps for the underlying maps. This blog posting is the first time we are publishing images from the 3D models. I choose some of the more artistic […]
