Visualization Software: Eye Candy 101

Since about 1984 or so I have been fascinated with the visualization of complex data.

I believe the canonical authority remains Edward Tufte at Yale. He's best known for The Visual Display Of Quantitative Information. I'll cover that at a future date.

I did today find this satellite constellation visualization software from Lloyd Wood
at the University Of Surrey(UK).
