My Master's thesis in NYU was a study to visualize a travel timeline in material form. A reverse API time machine, of sorts. Read the paper or check out more pictures.
I made a little online tool to generate treemap visualizations based on travel histories gathered from TripIt. Check it out here →
This project was featured in the TripIt Blog and .net magazine, among others.
I had a view of the midtown skyline when I moved into my loft in Brooklyn, which was later blocked by an ugly condo building. I protested. Local blogs picked it up.
