The data was found on NASA’s website. Link to dataset.
I randomly came across this interesting pattern playing around with blender. It’s essentially three glassy (RGB) cubes merging into the same location. Curious, I initially thought it to be some sort of 3d fractal caused by the reflective properties of the primatives within the scene.
Watch the video!
In this series of frames, the perspective change is .01 degrees.
Exploring the realm of floating point rounding errors!
Perspective from a room in which the floor, walls, and ceiling are made out of perfect mirrors. What would all those reflections look like? The images and animations below were rendered using Blender.
Mirror depth, 5 and 10. Empty room only contains light source.
Rendered some 3d animation videos as well. They turned out choppy and crappy. Next time, I won’t move/jerk the camera as fast as I did.
Update video. Much smoother.
Experimenting with some coroutines and System.Random
Playing around with Unity3D.

The Denver Police Department recently released an interesting crime dataset at http://data.denvergov.org/dataset/city-and-county-of-denver-crime. The data represents approximately a half a decade worth of police incident reports.
Below are some maps I created using CartoDB. Click on the images for higher resolution.

Health Care Information Data Breaches Affecting 500 or More Individuals. [2010 – 2015] This data was found on /r/datasets, https://ocrportal.hhs.gov/ocr/breach/breach_report.jsf
“As required by section 13402(e)(4) of the HITECH Act, the Secretary must post a list of breaches of unsecured protected health information affecting 500 or more individuals. These breaches are now posted in a new, more accessible format that allows users to search and sort the posted breaches. Additionally, this new format includes brief summaries of the breach cases that OCR has investigated and closed, as well as the names of private practice providers who have reported breaches of unsecured protected health information to the Secretary. The following breaches have been reported to the Secretary“

A look into open data about crime and policing in England.
Found at https://data.police.uk/. I downloaded a date range from 2011 through 2016, ~5 years. The uncompressed filesize for all select-able policing forces was approximately 5.45 GB. A quick C# script was written to filter out only the “Drug” crime type category, and it’s long/lat degree coordinates.
The downloadable data comes in a multi-directory/multi-file structure. Below is a c# console application which was created to parse the root folder, and export the specific crime type’s coordinates throughout out all the files.
