    Physical vs Virtual space
    One of the most fascinating aspects of the growing compilation at VisualComplexity.com is the occasional occurrence of linking distinct projects, across subjects, to find intriguing connections that were not immediately discernible at first-hand. A great example of this is portrayed in the following images, where the correlation between virtual and physical space is quite peculiar. Both of them show a human path over time, but while figure 1 shows a GPS tracking visualization of a person’s movement in physical space, figure 2 represents a user trail in the 3D virtual environment of the Quest Atlantis Universe.
