    Listen to Wikipedia is a visualization and sonification of Wikipedia's live recent changes data. The sounds indicate addition to (bells) or subtraction from (strings) a Wikipedia articles, and the pitch is inversely proportional to the size of the edit (a lower pitch means a bigger edit). Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. A string swell welcomes a new user to the site. There’s something reassuring about knowing that every user makes a noise, every edit has a voice in the roar. Now, let’s go make some noise.

The database in its entirety spans more than 1,500 years, but the time-period of densest concentration comes in the 19th century. Any person recorded here can be connected to any other person in the network through family relationships of ancestry, descent, siblinghood, marriage or some other type of familial affiliation. In Kindred Britain, family is all. The site is a panorama of engineers and painters, novelists and generals, scientists and merchants, and even a few reprobates, misanthropes and monsters.

This information is used to create a detailed song graph and visualization of paths though similar sounding beats. The visualization is a dynamic chord diagram that shows the beats of the song along the circumference of the circle along with with chords representing the possible paths from each beat to it's similar neighbors.

    The X axis moves from dense and atmospheric music on the left to choppier, bouncier, sharper music on the right. The Y axis moves from highly organic and acoustic music at the bottom to highly synthetic and mechanized dance forms at the top. The visual weight of each genre is determined by how actively its songs are currently being played, bought, reviewed and discussed online.

    The British have always been obsessed with Class, and apparently we still are. The BBC’s Great British Class Calculator has so far had more than 7 million page views.
    The project began when the BBC teamed up with sociologists from leading universities to analyse the modern British class system. They surveyed more than 161,000 people and came up with a new model made up of seven groups. The obvious treatment for this story was to enable users to find out how they fitted in to this new class system.

    Our interactive infographic shows an overview about the relevant parties of Berlin previous to the elections of Bundestag. All these data from all six parties are visualized in form of a pattern. With the navigation you can change the parties and compare data for the different parties.
    In the first part we analyze the manifesto and the keywords of themes which are relevant for Berlin's citizen. In the second part we collect the slogans on election posters, look into the election budgets, calculate all candidates average ages, gender percentage and locate the birthplace on a map.

    Our Increasing Insanity: The Evolution of the DSM

    ZoomRx

    The evolution of the DSM has played a leading role in the medicalization of psychiatry, and has consequently sparked controversy. Proponents argue the hyper-specificity of DSM-V has led to more accurate diagnoses, while critics argue it has simply led to more. We find this controversy interesting, and decided the best place to start was to map the growth of the DSMs.

    San Francisco Hill Mapper

    Hill Mapper is an interactive online map of hilly streets in San Francisco. My goal was to show both the steepness of hills and the direction of their incline, using a design that would be more intuitive than topographic contour lines.
    The map is intended to help you plan routes that minimize (or maximize!) hills, and also to help you think about the topography of your neighborhood in a novel way. Surprisingly, hills are missing from most maps of San Francisco.

    30th British Social Attitudes

    NatCen Social Research/ Guardian Digital Agency

    To celebrate 30 years of NatCen's British Social Attitudes survey we launched a new interactive data tool letting you explore 30 years of data on attitudes to the economy, welfare, morality, politics, NHS and the environment.
    The aim of this interactive is to increase awareness of the study and encourage wider interest in the findings.We were particularly keen to make it very visual and enjoyable to use to help reach people who may not naturally read detailed research reports, and to showcase the core benefit of the study - being able to see how opinions have changed over time.

    The Big Mac Index

    Donald Hounam and Roxana Willis

    The Big Mac Index was invented by The Economist in 1986 as a lighthearted guide to whether currencies are at their "correct" level, based on the idea of purchasing-power parity. Since then, “burgernomics” has become a global standard, included in economic textbooks and the subject of many academic studies. In 2013 we modernised the Big Mac Index by making it an interactive infographic and online tool, now used by curious readers, foreign travellers, business people, and professional economists alike.

    Predicting the US Presidential Reelection

    Guy Scriven and Donald Hounam

    What was the likelihood that Obama would be re-elected? Instead of talking to the pundits, The Economist listened to the data. Specifically, we looked at the president's economic performance in the 18 months prior to election day, and compared that against every postwar presidential re-election bid -- both successful and failed.
    As for what it showed? In absolute terms, Obama's economic record resembled bids that lost, pocked by high unemployment and low GDP growth. However more importantly, seen as trend lines, his performance more closely resembled successful bids -- an interpretation that was vindicated when Obama won.
