A music lover in Zurich combined his love of electronic music with his affinity for inforgraphics and created this wide yearlong graph charting his musical listening choices as a 3 meter poster. We share how it was created and how to make your own for free.
How was the graphic created? Andy used the listening stats from his LastFM
account with a statistics add-on called, LastGraph
(you can create your own or plug in anyone else's account name to check out their listening habit visually).
The site creates a vector graph PDF, which means the graphic can be enlarged to large sizes without resolution worries, thus offering anyone a unique and personalized wall graphic (you'll just need access to a large format printer or can tile separate sheets into one large image). Just delete those embarrassing guilty pleasures before you create and print out a graphic!
Note: seems like the service is quite popular and there's currently only 1 render node online to create these graphics. We're queued at position 1224 got give you an idea of the wait. So of course, there's a Premium account available which allows for hotlinking and possibly expedited delivery of your graph. Fair enough, considering it's otherwise a free service.
