Last week I shared details of a treemap data art project, now here's another way to transform your data into something more than just a form of communication. The latest release of DataAppeal enables users to import their generated 3D data-maps into other 3D modelling and vector-based software programmes creating the potential for physical 3D prints being made of their data.
In this sequence of examples we see a data representation of GTA Transit volume across thousands of districts in Toronto and surrounding across over a 24 hour period.
The output of the initial 3D mapping from DataAppeal is then compatible with software including AutoCAD, SketchUp, Rhino and 3ds Max.
From there, why not go a stage further and get physical!
