Visualize Web Data

Hint.fm serves up a virtual candy dish of unique data visualizations…

Hint.fm’s Project Seer is billed as a “portrait of human curiosity” via Google Suggest:

A simple one-sided visual picture of a Google Suggest when I enter the word “ice” (note: thickness of arrow lines reflects volume of webpages associated with that keyword/phrase):

and then a more complex two-sided comparison visualization using the terms “why won’t he” and “why won’t she”:

Human curiosity, yes, but also a type of artful trend and keyword visualization. If you’re into some curious ways to “look” at web data go to Hint.fm and check out the array of other visualization projects. Another of my faves…Flickr Flow…oh, and Word Tree….

    That is a very telling comparison of men and women. I love the fact that the mens side is all about sex (swallow) and the womens is all about relationships.
