As part of a summer research position at the University of Calgary Interactions Lab, I joined the InnoVis team to create vis4me.com. vis4me is a central hub for personal data visualization projects and was created to promote personal data visualization research and knowledge. Creating the website provided hands-on experience in working with WordPress, HTML, PHP, and website security measures. Within only a few months, vis4me has received thousands of views and is a place for the personal visualization community to expand.
The Projects page is the site’s home page. It features every project on the website and allows viewers to quickly filter through projects.
This is an example of a Project Page. It contains visual images or interactive content on the left side of the screen and data about the project on the right. We felt it was important to give credit to the authors of each project, so each page contain’s the author’s website and name. Viewers are also allowed to comment on each post and start a discussion.
The Featured page contains a curated selection of projects.
The Upload page allows creators to directly upload their projects to the website.
The About page contains contact information, a general site description, and more information about the creators of the website.
