Stone Matrix (2012-2014) is an interactive catalog of quarried natural stone lines appropriate to environmental design applications. It enables users to browse, search, and filter among 800+ individual lines of quarried stone by physical/design qualities, locations, and other custom criteria.
I designed, collected, edited, and controlled the quality of the matrix for the landscape architects and urban designers OLIN with assistance from University of Pennsylvania Urban Studies program interns Ian MacLean and Jordan Hillier.
Stone Matrix uses Fusion Tables, an experimental data visualization application developed by Google, for its end-user interface. Design, functionality, and technical support are therefore subject to frequent and radical change, but designers who wish to develop custom catalogs with some or all of the same data collected for this interface may download it in CSV (data file) and/or KML (map layer) format and experiment freely.
