Stock Ticker Orbital Comparison = COOL

leave a comment »

Care of Flowing Data, Stock Ticker Orbital Comparison (STOC) is one of the coolest representations of the market I’ve seen. Although I can’t see anyone really trading on top of this visualization metaphor, it does make one think of how correlations and other parameters might be represented via animation.

STOC was built using Processing, a Java-based visualization IDE developed at MIT. I understand there are Scala and Javascript versions in development as well. The closest python equivalents I can think of are NodeBox and Mayavi. In any case, STOC has swerve. Respect.
