Orange Lab Beijing and VIZMIND (My Studio) co-developed this work of Beijing SMS EVE, about Beijing’s SMS usage in Chinese New Year’s Eve 2012. After pre-processing the dataset of 18 hours’ SMS volume, we use 3D interactive map and vivid fireworks to depict the real-time SMS volume of over 10000 base stations in Beijing, with a thermodynamic diagram to describe the population distribution and mobilities, as well as some basic chart for the trend of each district. The project was presented in 2012 Beijing Design Week. The SMS usage data is provided by our partner China Mobile Beijing.
The tools we used include Processing, SPSS and AI.
