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.
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
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.
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.
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
