What is Cursive Data?

The project started as a way of making energy usage data more accessible to people not interested in graphs or numbers.

As real time data is received one of a number of pattern generators is used to create a new frame that becomes part of a slowly growing visualisation.

The visualisations can simply be embedded onto a website, or more interestingly brought to life by a drawing robot.

The robots are wall hanging v-plotters or polargraphs. They are designed to exhibit your data in a beautiful way. A document further explaining the idea is available here.

Bristol Green Capital funded the project to develop this website and install a public robot that will draw energy data.
