Drawing Experiment 32
I wasn’t going to make this a drawing experiment, except that it was so visually interesting. I was working on a stat program for a website and were looking at unique ip and time spent on site. My first stat was colorless and just lists and list of ip, page visited, timestamp. I fixed it up to now be color coded according to ip and it is so much better and so visually attractive. I can sit and look at people walking through site such vibrant colors. I thought to myself, what would it look like to look at a whole month back of all the stats. Here is what it looks like.
The above image is just a sampling. Here is the full PDF of the stats.
For those people who are interested in coding, here is the algorithm I used to color code the IP address. It isn’t all that complicated, but as you can see, it does bring pretty good variety.
TheCellColor =RGB, where
brtns= 65 // a raised brightness of the color.
R = IP-part1+brtns
G = IP-part2+brtns
B = IP-part3+brtns
So simple, but so pretty. I see some very very good color combination I may use in future art projects that were randomly generated by people visiting the site. I may also take this algorithm and create a site that is designed by the walk-through stats of people, like.. What color is your IP and start taking a log of all the people that have come by and displayed in a very pretty configuration.
Put IP Color widget on your site.
It is currently under BETA. More customizations are yet to come.
