You can build attractive decision support data models with suitable axis selection. As an example, see the animation on the video page of the MeliesArt website (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WOV6eVCP7I). It is a virtual “flight over 160 economies”: The x/y areas represent the Gross National Income (in US$) of 120 economies (= market opportunities), the heights of country blocks (z) represent their ranking position according to the annual World Bank Study on investment conditions (“Doing Business”): The poorer the rank (=risk), the greater the height. Thus, the 3D Designer is able to introduce analogies (eg Tour de France , mountain climbing ) , to improve illustrations of the market expansion efforts in different regions ; supported by the visual- tactile properties of the physical color models.
You can buy this MeliesArt dataSculpture (A4 format) at the Belgian Printing House iMaterialize (https://i.materialise.com/shop/search?query=MeliesArt). In addition, you can obtain an additional A4 sized-colour map of the countries position on the dataSculpture. Just email to MeliesArt. We do not recommend ordering the prints smaller than indicated on the Printing Houses websites: Details may break away.
