Skyrails is an interactive graph visualization system that looks a lot like a video game. Explore relationships, visit nodes, and immerse yourself in the data. As I watch the demo video on YouTube, I feel like I’m seeing another world.
You’ve got the standard ball and stick view. Whether it’s useful for analysis or deeper understanding of relationships between whatever is up for debate, but one thing’s for sure â€“ it looks cool. Plus the code is open source.
It does look like a videogame. I’ve been playing a bit with the game Spore, and it sometimes looks very similar to the space stage. Which has a star system with colored relations between the different empires, and even the arrow-like flow directions for trade routes is pretty much the same: http://i34.tinypic.com/2ljj48x.jpg
Anyway, I think this is an awesome way to analyze or present data.
Hello, sorry but it’s not open source (yet, or maybe never). I don’t know yet.
@Yose – sorry, not open source, but uh, something.
I was impressed with the video and photos. Keep up the good work Yose.
