Stock Ticker Orbital Comparison chart
STOC is an attempt to visualize every stock on the Nasdaq exchange, with six data points for each stock. It began as an idea during a college course but quickly became my entire focus for the class. A year later, this data visualization earned me an invitation to Siggraph. Since then, I have made custom versions for several clients, and even now I continue to make improvements as necessary.
STOC is still a work in progress. It may always be a work in progress, as a model this large and with this much data can always be optimized. If you are interested in applying such a model to a data set, contact me: james at uniformchaos dot org.
