Touch it 1 World Plays

I decided to take a night off coding 2 tonight and instead I tried to experiment with some of the data collected with 1.

I decided it would be good to visualize where all the players are coming from as this may help when making Touch It 2.

I wanted to be able to see the plays being added to a drawing in realtime so I had a quick search around the net and came across this script.

.js was exactly what I was looking for, it even provided a nice way to draw at certain x y locations. After I had got a quick test knocked together the rest just fell into place.

I used + to generate a array which I then looped through with a delay so I could see each dot being added. The end animation is quite good even if I do say so.

I didn’t spend much time trying to tweak the results as I feel the saved PNG shows me what I wanted to know.

That’s it really nothing else special about it… Just a heatmap, move along, nothing more to see here…..
