HotelsBase Visualization from Collin Burger on Vimeo.

The visualization that I made was pretty simple. I mapped all of the points to a sphere and added them to a mesh and drew it as if it were the earth. I added a GUI that enables the user to color the hotels that are a part of a chain and also to only show those hotels that are within a certain rating range. In addition, I added some post-processing effects such as bloom to give the points on the map a bit of a glow. The video embedded above shows off the functionality of my map visualization. It was interesting, although not at all surprising, to see that the vast majority of chain hotels are within the United States.
