We’ve been looking at the UTS class timetables. Currently, there are only summer session , December session and exam timetables that are available ( with locations and size of class ). They are actually  statistic data with a daily/hourly frequency, and we think it would be more interesting to see its relationships to traffic load and bus timetables, etc. we ‘ve also looked up the distance of each building, it ‘ll be good if we could relate it to the Harris St traffic data.

here are works we’ve done for today’s presentation:


this one looks at 2 pairs of data , the english speaking people and non-english speaking people both in Ultimo and in UTS.  The two larger concetric torus represents Ultimo, the smaller ones represents UTS. we can easily  known that UTS has a far more bigger percentage of non-english speakers as shown.  Each of the torus is made by elements with the same number with the data, we tried to make it rotated by mouse, but it dose not actually work.


This one comes from the class timetable data.  We pick up the Fri’s  data as a start point and the background color gose darker as time passes by. The amount of people in each class is reflected by the height of the box while duration of class by its width .


We tried to overlapping stuffs in this one, where we added bus timetable data to the original class timetable things with green dots as class beginning and red dots as finishing. The size of each dots is determined  by the amount of students in that class and those grey vertical lines represent bus timetables. We found that this appoarch is of most interest and we’ve decided to develope it by adding more information or making it 3D.
