Biomole: Visualizing Functional Co-Occurrence

Biomole: Visualizing Functional Co-Occurrence


We present Biomole, an interactive visualization designed to explore a data set created to support bio-inspiration design published by the Ask Nature organization. The Ask Nature data set contains a hierarchy of functions which we encode within different visual elements of Biomole; most importantly interactive data painting of functions allows people to search for functional co-occurrence. The movement of the visual elements is a metaphorical nod to the bio-inspired nature of the data and the uncertainty of the design solution space.
