By Francisco Javier Aragón Artacho, “This is a walk made out of the first 100 billion digits of pi in base 4 with the following rules for the steps: 0 right, 1 up, 2 left, 3 down.” [via]
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
There are rules—usually for specific chart types meant to be read in a specific way—that you shouldn’t break. When they are, everyone loses. This is that small handful.
Before you dive into the advanced stuff – like just about everything in your life – you have to learn the fundamentals before you know when you can break the rules.
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.
The individual data points of life are much less predictable than the average. Here’s a simulation that shows you how much time is left on the clock.
