Particles

In this project, we have studied the potential of animated particles to encode information and multivariate data. We have focused this work on both animated edge texture in node-link diagrams and particle clouds.
This opens a larger design space, featuring additional visual encodings that have potential not only in terms of visual mapping capacity but also playfulness and aesthetics. Such animations have been used in several commercial and design-oriented visualizations, but to our knowledge almost always in a relatively ad hoc manner.
