André Heller Zeiträume

The “Weltzustandsmaschine” by André Heller is an interactive big data visualization aiming to raise awareness for climate change and other global socioeconomic issues. Users can move through data and time to visualize humanity’s impact on planet Earth.

A touchscreen display allows users to browse the data and access additional information about the satellites providing it. The data is visualized on the large globe projection located in the centre of the room. Users can use the touch controls to rotate the globe and move in time.

The interactive big data visualization collects datasets from multiple satellites daily, with some archives dating back over the last 50 years. In addition, we created a custom data format optimized for high-speed access. Users can browse through extensive data collections in real time using interface elements on the touch screen.
