Info Viz, updates

Data scraping is going well.. I have at the time of writing about 65k+ images scrapped of the iTunes App Store.

I forgot to mention, I’m changing my idea to try to visualize something interesting from the abundance of (mostly bad) icons on the App Store. I don’t think I will have sufficient time to scrape the entire app store, I’ll just have to work with what I have.

I’m not too sure what kind of visualization I can get out of all these data. On the fundamental level, I’m going to try to generate a colour chart of all the icons in the app store. I’m also thinking of experimenting with data averaging or various other techniques to see what I can get.

  1. Hey Chong Han,

    Cool project! You should be aware of a similar visualization that Apple did for WWDC 2009:
