ThreadWatch: Tracking and Visualizing the Use of Software Applications

ThreadWatch [finekost.com] by interactive developer Alex Milde visualizes the usage of software programs on the Mac platform over the timeframe of one day.
First, one needs to download a small program that tracks all active applications on your desktop, as well as their impact in terms of memory and CPU usage. This tracked data is stored in a text file, which can be uploaded and then visualized. The data is not stored nor kept by the visualization tool. Individual software programs are represented by different colors.

Pulse: Tracking Electricity Usage of Office Buildings
Last Updated on Sunday, 18 March 2012 02:22 Written by Celframe Web Team Sunday, 22 April 2012 04:57
Pulse [greenbuildingsalive.com], beautifully designed by Andrea Lau’s venture Small Multiples, tracks and visualizes the patterns of electricity use in about 50 office buildings located in Australia.
As a private initiative of the Investa Sustainability Institute, this website focuses on the role of the building owner and building manager to make existing commercial office buildings ‘greener’. As such, the visualizations allow these stakeholders to compare the performance of their building with those of others, for instance to identify patterns that might be out of the ordinary, or share tips and insights that might emerge from exploring the actual performance data.
The various line graphs reveal an almost real-time look to the actual electricity usage, and contrasts the information to the environmental parameters like ambient temperature, humidity and the like. Hovering over the large graph reveals a comparison between the data and that of a typical day. Energy usage can be dissected by the actual activity (e.g. lifts, HVAC, etc.), and up to 4 different buildings can be compared.
Everywhere I’ve Been: Mapping 3 Years Worth of Location Tracking

Co-founder of Geoloqi Aaron Parecki is showing of the core services of this mobile platform for tracking and sharing location data, in the blog post “Everywhere I’ve Been” [geoloqi.com].
The resulting maps are generated entirely from 2.5 million unique GPS points (about 1 point per 2 to 6 seconds), which were tracked by his iPhone or Android phone for the past 3.5 years (resulting also in some interesting battery issues).
The trajectories and itineraries on the maps have been colored by year, in order to reveal how his physical footprint changes over time due to the different locations of his house.
