The Ticker Garden is a stand-alone data visualization application that monitors a stock portfolio. Different flowers represent the real-time performance of selected stocks via the color, height, & radian of animated blossom flowers. A flower grows from the ground and stops at the height reflecting its share price – the higher the stock price, the higher the ‘flower stem’. As soon as it reaches the top, it begins to blossom fan-wise to the degree that reflects the percentage of price change. The color a direction of a blossom indicates a particular stock’s status of ascent or descent in price compared to its previous trading day. A flying bee will show up around a flower if there is recent news of that particular stock.
