BabiaXR: Virtual & Augmented Reality Data Visualizations for the browser
No video of the event yet, sorry!
There are plenty of tools that can analyze data in many ways, but just a few of them try to visualize this data beyond 2D. This is the goal of BabiaXR, a set of front-end modules for 3D XR (virtual and augmented reality) data visualization. The visualization part of BabiaXR is based on A-Frame and Threejs, providing a collection of components for creating different kinds of visualizations. Among them, there are common ones like bar charts, pie charts, bubbles chart, but now we are moving beyond that, exploring new ways of show data in 3D. For example, we are working on representing software projects using the city metaphor, showing the evolution of the project as the evolution of a city, with building corresponding to the different files. In this talk, I will do an overview of BabiaXR, showing different examples of the power of WebVR and A-Frame with different visualizations. Then, I will analyze a city corresponding to a well-known FOSS project, showing its evolution in different time snapshots and explaining how the code evolves as the city does. Moreover, there will be examples that the public of the room can try on the fly in their devices, and I will bring a set of two different VR devices to show the examples in an immersive environment after the talk. All the data used in this talk was retrieved using GrimoireLab, an open-source toolset for software development analytics.
