This sure beats my own attempt to visualize pi.
Neat, I like yours as well.
This looks very atlas-like! You can almost see North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and sorta-Australia/Pacific. Very cool!
Please. Someone do it in base 6, and do it in 3D. Let 4 be forward, and 5 backwards…
It’s not really a *random* walk since the first 100 billion digits of pi are already known before the very first step is taken.
How would other numbers (whole, fractions, e) look in base pi?
Daniel Tammet’s picture of π
Tammett is an autistic savant who memorized π to thousands of places.
Someone please do this with using golden ratio!
Nice and original visualizations of pi could be found here:

What you get
Here are my favorites for the year.
I wanted to see how daily patterns emerge at the individual level and how a person’s entire day plays out. So I simulated 1,000 of them.
There are many ways to die. Cancer. Infection. Mental. External. This is how different groups of people died over the past 10 years, visualized by age.
I call myself a statistician, because, well, I’m a statistics graduate student. However, the most important things I’ve learned are less formal, but have proven extremely useful when working/playing with data.
