Three-Dimensional Interactive Project
MAT 259, 2013

The point of my visualization was to track books & other media items about the subject of travel from around the world in a 3d space. The information is displayed with a cylinder for each country over its Latitude and Longitude, and the cylinder height representing the number of checkouts for books on that country. One can also search for a regions such as the Middle East, Europe, Africa, South America, etc...


SELECT title as Title, Count(IF(subj like '%travel%', 1, NULL)) as travelCount FROM inraw where subj like '%travel%' GROUP BY title Having Count(IF(subj like '%travel%', 1, NULL)) > 1;

Results and Analysis
Overall, this project went through many changes and restructurings. The hardest part was to display all the information I wanted to effectively. Working in 3d was fun yet challenging. I hope that from the visualization with minimal explanation a patron could look at my project and understand what I was trying to convey.
