Mapping the CiF and the Axis of EvilPosted: August 28, 2011 | |
First things first, I need control data for the axis of evil – to do this I’ve grouped some fairly black and white politicians and famous people and all you have to do is decide on their moral integrity.
As to working on the cartoon comment section map it looks like my worries about 3D graphing were unfounded. I already have a passing acquaintance with Blender. The solution is simply to write a short python script that will create objects and use the data points to place the object in 3d space.
Of course one of the advantages of using a real 3d app is you get to play with lighting rigs, rather than relying on image transparencies to fake shadows and highlights:
I think it could also be interesting to make an animation of the data being added.
