Crytek Architectural Visualisation

Video of a Ukrainian architect's experiments with the Crytek 2 game engine. Shows very intricate and highly realistic visualisations of a suburban landscape. Improves the speed of visualisation, as all of this detail can be generated within a level editor that comes with the engine. This is one of the things I keep telling people who query the effort involved in modelling a business simulation. Level editing systems in Games allow low-skilled programmers to develop quite sophisticated environments with simple event-based scripting systems. Skills well within the reach of a typical Business Analyst.

Good News Visualisation

Hans Roslin presents some great news about the decline in infant mortality. While this is great news full stop, I do love the way he presented the information. He uses impacting dynamic graphs to illustrate the downward trends. It also succinctly illustrates the relationship between infant mortality, family sizes and the education of women in society. These are key factors in future sustainability and quality of life issues for the human race as a whole, and I believe he uses visualisations to communicate this well.
