Q&A with Jan Willem Tulp
Welcome to our second iteration of the Visualizing Q&A, where we're introducing you to some of the designers behind the work you see at Visualizing.org. Got questions for them? Add your comments below!
This week, we're happy to feature Jan Willem Tulp. One of our most active Visualizing.org community members, Jan has participated in several Data Visualization Challenges, consistently landing in the top tier of competitors. We recently caught up with Jan at his homebase in Den Haag, the Netherlands, where he gave us the rundown on exciting new programming technologies, open data sets, and prospects for real-time visualizations.
V: One visualization or data set you’ve always wanted to tackle but haven’t yet had the time?
JT: Realtime data might really be interesting. Something I've been thinking about for some time now is to visualize MIDI data from my digital piano. And since modern browsers now support WebSockets, I might do some realtime streaming MIDI visualization on the web. That, to me, sounds like an interesting concept. Also, I am really looking forward to seeing the Dutch government opening up (more) data. I am very jealous of people in the US, UK, Australia with much more open data sets available, so that might be something as well.
