Transparent Image Masks 2: TIMs for Framing
This past week we started exploring the use of floating images over vizzes as Transparent Image Masks (TIMs) on our Father’s Day Viz. The purpose was to mask a viz with a border to give it a more interesting shape relevant to the topic; in this case a tie. Another application of TIMs can be for framing. We recall Stephen Wagner’s Iron Viz submission of an embedded video clip framed in a photo of a television. As with any work of art, framing can accentuate a theme or aesthetic appeal. This week we leveraged Star Trek inspired dashboards to frame a fun Data Visualization. Enjoy!
