a web-based baby data visualization tool that tracks the sleep patterns, feeding schedules & diaper habits of a newborn baby over time. the "Baby Tracker" application allows new parents to create detailed records & custom charts of Sleep, Diapers, Bottles, Solids, Nursing, Pumping Activity & Medicine, to better understand the baby's daily patterns & needs. it also allows parents to share that information online with family & friends.

some of the data visualizations include a "sleep propability distribution chart" line-plot, an "awake, transition & asleep time period" chart, a "visual diapers" sparkline graph & a comparative "1 year ago" feature.

P.S. for the hard-core infosthetics fan who even reads this 3rd paragraph, I can reveal that I probably will become a trixie tracker "customer" this August!

Maybe will see more stuff related to children from now on.

Keep up with the excellent posts, but take your time with the baby, ok?

Will you publish your baby graphs at a later stage? :)

Fri 27 Apr 2007 at 9:16 PM

nifty idea, but that first graph suffers from some major bendy-line optical illusion...

Hey, congrats!

Fri 27 Apr 2007 at 11:50 PM

brent, you're absolutely correct. the illusion present in this data is called the "Cafe Wall Effect" and there's a nice demo of it here:

Congratulations! Of course, how much cooler would trixietracker be if you could get your data out to make your own visualizations?

Congratulations! I sense a new sparkline on the front page...

Wow, I spent some time last month building a very similar schedule-tracking tool for my 4 month-old daughter. It's actually eerily similar in visual style to the sleep tracking graph above. It's fascinating to see the development and organization of her schedule visually.
