Data Visualizations:


This is a quick set of visualiztions of Bigfoot sightings accros the U.S. It was displayed using Tableau, and differentiates sightings by the year of the sighting and land use of the sighting. It is interesting to see that all of the sightings have a similar trend over time based on land use.


This is a series of data sets that are visualized using QGIS. The first is a highlighted airport route. It uses the strong contrasts and luminance to display airplane paths in the U.S. The next is a bathymetry map of the Atlantic basin. This method uses the layer blending function in QGIS. Following the bathymetery visual an overlay map is created using the blending function to show a colorized terrain map. The Denmark maps also use the blend function to show roadway density. Lastly, the old fashioned maps of the U.S. use blending of shapeburst fills to create an old fashioned look and feel on a digital map. This was applied to Bigfoot sightings accross the U.S.


The RawGraphs visuals show examples of treemaps, bumpcharts, hexagonal binning, and alluvial diagrams. RawGraphs is a straightforward, open-source visualization tool that gives users a lot of visualization options.

 Blender and Sketchfab

The Blender and Sketchfab visuals and animations allow textures to be applied to 2D and 3D visual elements, and then animate them through a cloud based server. This example is a simple hut structure followed by an animation and perspective of Dorthea Dix Park in NC.


Kepler is a terrific, open source mapping tool that allows 2D and 3D animations and maps. This example shows crime data over time in both Raleigh, NC and Miami, FL.


Leaflet is a wonderful tool for embedding maps into websites and web applications. This example shows the trees within the Denver Zoo in an interactive 2D map. It also uses Mapbox's Frank Lloyd Wright basemap.


This is an infographic that I customized using Inkscape. It is a depiction of geographies extracted from my geoparser application and analysis. This project won 2nd place at the 2021 NCSU Infographic competition.


This is an animation of a flood inundation model I created in GRASS GIS. The model shows varying levels of inundation accross Raleigh, NC, and uses Mapbox's default basemap.
