A Quick Look at Lots of Songs …

Songs by year, rating and genre

iTunes information about my songs, showing year, genre and my ratings

A quick visualization of the songs in my iTunes database. I was curious to see if there were any sweet spots in my listening history. As always, showing correlation between three different variables is hard, and here I wanted one dot per song, so the density is quite high (clicking on the image to show it full size is recommended).

Perhaps the most interesting thing for me personally was that I though i liked Alternative music more than I actually appear to. I notice especially that the 2010-2015 bin for mid-value rating is dominated by Alternative!

About workingvis

Visualization is the science of making pictures out of data so that they inform the viewer and allow them to understand the data and take action based on what can be seen. I create new methods of interacting with data using a computer interface and try to understand what tools help people model their data and find patterns and unusual features. I have a background in statistics and statistical graphics, and work with computer scientists as well as statisticians. My particular interests include research into: * Fundamental methods for interaction with data views * Statistical methods to improve or motivate visualization design * The interface between statistical models and statistical graphics * Visualization of large weighted graphs * Ways to use knowledge discovery techniques with visualization Specialties:visualization, research, statistics, statistical modeling, graphics, information visualization, agile development, spatial statistics, time series
