Japan Internet Map

At The Bridge, we had a database of Japanese startups and internet companies. Using d3.js (via an outsourced developer), we created this interactive top layer to make accessing those database entries a little more fun and engaging.

Ooh, this is really cool! It's fun to discover new services by browsing the different segments. Thanks for sharing, Rick!

I'm interested to hear about any feedback you've received from your users about this, and how that learning may impact any future iterations?

Thanks Mark. Feedback from English-speaking users was great. It got us some media attention at a time when we needed it. Admittedly, it's not going to win any UI awards, but it was a fun project to try, just as an effort to surface older content in a fun way. If I were to ever do another iteration, I'd maybe opt for a tree map viz which would better fit a rectangular mobile screen. And it should ideally be connected to a subset of categories of the site, so it can grow and change over time with the content.
