As data continuously changes, how do you keep staff and clients aware of the latest changes in markets, analysis, research and internal metrics. This 24x7 autonomous multi-touch wall consumes data such as news, internal research, market data and databases. It automatically generates story sequences containing narrative text annotations aligned with dynamically updating visualization elements. These stories can be interrupted and interacted by any viewer to further explore the data content and drill-down to detail. Passive viewers are more aware of relevant business and engaged to drill-down to form a deeper understanding of current issues.

Data Driven Stories
Pro Baseball - Point-and-click Visual Analytics
Uncharted worked with a small venture-backed startup to visualize 5TB of data in professional baseball at the per pitch level including measured data and video. We designed and developed a suite of branded, purpose-specific visualizations usable by anyone. At product launch, the press reported that “experts were seen gawking” and singled out the visualizations as “drool-worthy.” The product achieved 271% market penetration over forecast in the first year.
NASDAQ Point of Presence
Broadcast of 4,000 stocks in real-time. Journalists make 150 broadcasts from Nasdaq MarketSite every day against a live backdrop of data graphics. That’s an estimated $70 M of broadcast air time every year. To tell the market’s story, Uncharted developed this iconic visualization system to display activity on demand for 4,000 stocks onto a 6x20 video wall and eight-storey tower on Times Square in New York. The NASDAQ site on Times Square is a visual beacon for critical information, a strong brand identity, and engages clients in market events through the use of advanced video and CGI on massive wall, tower, and interior screens.
Major Financial Data Vendor - Market Intelligence
In this project for a leading client, Uncharted created a hierarchical heatmap of the financial markets that provides high level, intermediate and detailed summaries in an intuitive display of market activity. Unlike traditional heat-map approaches which are devoid of intermediate level summaries and often confuse viewers by the nature of their layout, this highly effective technique organizes and aggregates information in a manner that traders and portfolio managers intuitively understand and can act on at a glance.
This is a new level of market overview. I am quickly informed on exactly what I need. The system is instantly usable. - Equities Trader
Explaining the CPI
Infographics excel at telling simple stories with graphics. For larger datasets, narrative makes knowledge more accessible by explaining concepts, pointing out key insights and encouraging interactive exploration of the data. In this experimental WebGL demo, a sphere provides a novel view of US Consumer Price Index data while the narrator incrementally steps the viewer through the story to reveal aspects of the data.
Portfolio Management - Real-Time Trade Strategy Evaluation
In this application interactive real-time visualizations show discrepancies between valuation models and market data revealing potential market opportunities. Visual trade strategy analytics can be embedded directly into the trading process, or used for what-if analysis or to provide rapid efficient performance feedback.
Portfolio Management - Increase Return on Risk
Risk is dynamic and can change quickly when there are hundreds of transactions every day. Rapid understanding is a challenge for managers, where the dimensions of risk - such as portfolio, term, product, geography, counter party, liquidity, and volatility - are many. Using interactive visualizations to show aspects of Value at Risk (VaR) - how VaR relates to P+L and limits and how VaR is distributed - can help to better manage risk when millions can be at stake.
Leading ECN - Visible Markets
Giving visual form to the market enables a trader to see developments more quickly, gaining competitive advantage. In this design for a leading ECN, Uncharted real-time visualization forms an intuitive, integrated view of supply and demand (buy and sell orders), transaction history (trades), and analytics (e.g. volume distributions and VWAP). This innovative visualization design earns praise in David Leinwebber’s book Nerds on Wall Street.
A precursor to TellFinder, Uncharted’s nSpace is a web-based visual analytics platform that enables analysts to interactively discover and synthesize insights from vast amounts of structured and unstructured data. nSpace includes semantic extraction and categorization, hypothesis exploration and evidence gathering, reasoning, collaboration and reporting. It is a collaborative environment to build and share knowledge. Powerful software agents combined with interactive visual techniques are used to synthesize and share actionable knowledge with others.
nSpace in a web browser lets me integrate all of my analysis into a flexible thinking workspace. - Government Analyst

Features such as sketch, messaging, and chat are built in, and with an extensible, componentized SDK, Uncharted’s MobileTerrain enables rapid development and integration of new capabilities.
Mission Critical Awareness and Planning
Real-time visualization provides commanders with the necessary tools for rapid assessment and comprehension of highly complex situations. Staying inside the opposition’s awareness / planning / decision cycle is essential when the ultimate goal is concurrent planning and execution. Interactive visual collaboration enables participants to work together remotely with shared understanding to plan next steps more rapidly and successfully.
Complex Systems - Visual Explanation
Interactive visualization provides the means for an analyst to discover stories in data, understand complex systems, and share those stories with others. Capturing and narrating observations enables the expert analyst to communicate and validate conclusions with a broader audience. Narrative sequences communicate analysis, enabling others to understand, to see for themselves, and to contribute. Story threads emerge as the user interactively drills-down to explore deeper underlying factors and scenarios. Unlike paper reports, live graphic presentations are up-to-date with the latest data and commentary.
BHP Billiton - "What If" Global Risk Forecast
Asset class by term structure is shown on the floor with one wall providing a geographic roll-up, and the other wall showing financial metrics. BHP Billiton, one of the world’s largest resource companies of its kind, uses a diversified portfolio strategy to manage its assets. Uncharted’s enterprise risk visualizations create and assess what-if scenarios such as potential acquisitions and their impact on short-term risk. This tool for senior and executive management won the prestigious “Innovation of the Year” from Energy Risk magazine.
Visualization enables instant insight across the portfolio; we see issues immediately. - F500 bank
Airspace Management - Extreme Real-Time Performance
Uncharted provides interactive, multiple 3D views of the airspace and meets the severe performance requirements needed to manage large data throughputs and rapid update frequencies. In an independent evaluation, Uncharted came out ahead of the known names in the business.
