Yiran Xuan – Looking Outward 07

This visualization was custom-made by a reddit user with a combination of R, Python, and Javascript and related plugins. The data used was estimated using a combination of U.S. Census data and public transportation inflow/outflow statistics. Using this visualization, we can make analyses about city activity. What I most admire about the project is the work put in to create the population estimates, and the fact that a straightforward visualization method (3D bars) can used to create an image that appears to make the city breath.
