Inspiration and examples
The project is developed under the framework of the Creative Industries Research Center Amsterdam (CIRCA), department of Humanities, UvA, coordinated by Prof. J. Simons and Dr. S. Olma.
CIRCA collaborates with Appsterdam (appsterdam.rs) and AIM for creating a hard database of the App Industry and use visualization techniques to provide insights on the data subsets generated.
The database created will be handed to the MediaLAb students for further data analysis, research and developing case-studies.
The project will introduce students to database structures and information visualization. Students will work in a multidisciplinary team. The team will develop concepts for implementing an interactive application for the visualization and navigation of self-chosen data.
