Series

Extent and Medium

  • approximately 6,500 digital files (7.6 GB)
  • 8 folders of textual materials

Scope and Content

Series 2, MarkeTrac and OrderTrac, 1998-2007, chiefly documents Asymptote’s work bringing 3DTF online through the development and implementation of two web applications. This series includes textual and born-digital components, and chiefly dates from 2000 to 2001.

MarkeTrac represents the most significant expansion on 3DTF. Running as a subdomain of the NYSE website for much of the early 2000s, it allowed users to monitor data from a personal computer using the 3DTF interface. Though there were other efforts bringing real-time stock data online at this time, MarkeTrac is significant in that it was the first to include a major data visualization component. Later additions to this project include OrderTrac, a component of MarkeTrac allowing users to buy and sell stocks online. Other unrealized projects related to 3DTF and data visualization were conceptualized during this time.

The digital files in this series are chiefly raster images and video of renderings, in addition to a body of handout materials for project presentations. There is also a small body of CAD material in Maya. The textual records are largely handouts for presentation meetings, overlapping significantly with the digital files. There is also a small body of chiefly textual material documenting the conceptualization of other data visualization products.
