Simulation of the interleaving effect resulting of two different groups of particles colliding. The red group follows the mouse cursor, while the blue group is focused on the canvas center.
Representation of the motion of Geosynchronous artificial satellites orbiting the Earth.
Geosynchronous satellites follow a circular orbit around the Earth at a distance of approximately 35,786km above the surface. A large amount of these satellites are fully Geostationary, lining up very closely with the Earth's equator. Others diverge from this single perimeter line and wave around the equatorial plane with a period equal to a sidereal day (~23h56m4s).
Each satellite is projected at the location on Earth where it's directly at the zenith. Time is accelerated to 5min/frame to highlight the daily motion.
Each satellite is projected at the location on Earth where it's directly at the zenith. The area of each circle is inversely proportional to the satellite's altitude from the surface, so closer (and faster orbiting) satellites will exhibit a larger radius.
Satellite distances and Earth's size are true to scale. The different satellite categories can be toggled on/off and are grouped by unique color.

Force-directed graph of reference relationships between bl.ocks users found in
README files. Data sourced from micahstubb's readme-vis.
The text size of each user is proportional to their number of referenced blocks. The link's moving particles indicate the reference direction from source > referrer, and the velocity and density indicate the volume of references.
Hovering on a node traverses the graph downstream and highlights its full chain of references, gradually fading out the highlight color with each degree of separation. Clicking on a node opens the user's bl.ocks profile. Supports canvas zoom/pan and node dragging interactions.
