As data continuously changes, how do you keep staff and clients aware of the latest changes in markets, analysis, research and internal metrics. This 24x7 autonomous multi-touch wall consumes data such as news, internal research, market data and databases. It automatically generates story sequences containing narrative text annotations aligned with dynamically updating visualization elements. These stories can be interrupted and interacted by any viewer to further explore the data content and drill-down to detail. Passive viewers are more aware of relevant business and engaged to drill-down to form a deeper understanding of current issues.

Data Driven Stories
NASDAQ Point of Presence
Broadcast of 4,000 stocks in real-time. Journalists make 150 broadcasts from Nasdaq MarketSite every day against a live backdrop of data graphics. That’s an estimated $70 M of broadcast air time every year. To tell the market’s story, Uncharted developed this iconic visualization system to display activity on demand for 4,000 stocks onto a 6x20 video wall and eight-storey tower on Times Square in New York.
The NASDAQ site on Times Square is a visual beacon for critical information, a strong brand identity, and engages clients in market events through the use of advanced video and CGI on massive wall, tower, and interior screens.
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
Explaining the CPI
Infographics excel at telling simple stories with graphics. For larger datasets, narrative makes knowledge more accessible by explaining concepts, pointing out key insights and encouraging interactive exploration of the data. In this experimental WebGL demo, a sphere provides a novel view of US Consumer Price Index data while the narrator incrementally steps the viewer through the story to reveal aspects of the data.
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.
Portfolio Management - Increase Return on Risk
Risk is dynamic and can change quickly when there are hundreds of transactions every day. Rapid understanding is a challenge for managers, where the dimensions of risk - such as portfolio, term, product, geography, counter party, liquidity, and volatility - are many. Using interactive visualizations to show aspects of Value at Risk (VaR) - how VaR relates to P+L and limits and how VaR is distributed - can help to better manage risk when millions can be at stake.
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.
