IBM Data Visualization Engine
Realtime data visualization engine for headquarters and select events
AV&C partnered with IBM and Gensler to develop a suite of realtime data visualization engines displaying up to the minute data as architecturally scaled information design throughout IBM’s headquarters, and select global workspaces and events.
For this work, AV&C worked with IBM's data scientists to collect dozens of disparate data feeds across a wide range of types and verticals. We developed processes to collect, normalize and store data specific to the use of the visualization engine suite.
Visual exploration studies were conducted on the the live data, overlapping and intersecting a variety of data sets encompassing geo-spatial information spanning weather, population density, natural resource availability and a myriad of online activity including commerce, news sentiment, and viral threats.
For the final output, we developed a suite of realtime data visualization modules with a content creation engine for scheduling and interleaving editorial programming with the data modules to a variety of form factors throughout the IBM ecosystem.
