At the data mining session presented by Dan Frankowski, a significant number of people expressed interest in Processing (http://processing.org) as a tool for data visualization. An ad hoc session was scheduled for an open room in the afternoon (Learn, 3:40 - 4:30 pm).

Key points of the presentation:

  • Domain Specific Language (DSL) for "digital artists"
  • Processing is a sketchbook
  • Libraries add functionality to the Processing DSL

Examples were created on the fly and discussion ensued. Complementary tools prefuse (http://prefuse.org), Protovis (http://vis.stanford.edu/protovis), Piccolo2D (http://code.google.com/p/piccolo2d), OpenLayers (http://openlayers.org), and MapServer (http://mapserver.org) were also discussed.
