This work on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle began after similar work on HBO's Game of Thrones and Netflix's Stranger Things. I was curious whether I could use Amazon X-ray data to produce some of the visualizations I made for those shows.

This is a playground for those ideas. Note: the page may take a moment to load since it's loading each visualization.

h/t to curiousgnu.com for X-ray data extraction. And coming soon: notes on working with X-ray data and handling inconsistencies therein.

Screen Time

Some of the easiest things to visualize are representations of when characters are on screen.

Notes

The GitHub repository for this project has the data files used to make these visualizations. Code for each is also on GitHub, and a description of the project is on Medium. Comments and suggestions are welcome on GitHub, Medium, or here.

h/t to Jason Davies for the clean style of this page.
