Most people who might read my blog know I’m involved with the Portland State Aerospace Society, and probably also know I contributed to our August 2005 launch. Over the last couple of days, I’ve been trying to analyze the data we gathered in that launch. One of the things I’m most interested in about that is how to visualize the huge piles of information we collected.

Here’s one attempt: a launch site map.

If you had a bunch of GPS coordinates or other 3D time-series data, what visualization tools would you apply to it?
