Density Design’s Dust Platform

Density Design’s Dust Platform | visual data | Scoop.it

Dust is an ongoing research project developed for Iridescent Learning, an American NGO. The project’s aim is to provide a freely available, web based information visualization tool that supports parents in exploring and comparing the educational offerings from selected major cities in the United States.

Supported by geographical maps and close-up visualizations users can create custom profiles based on their needs and priorities and then perform a search for the most appropriate schools for their children. Dust aims to combine the capability of information visualization in depicting synthetic views of complex, multidimensional, and georeferenced data; with a rich, yet intuitive, web-user experience.
