Nice! It's the same idea with a little different approach that I've tried a bunch of times:
I have per-minute snapshots of the data since July. There are a bunch of gaps in the data so you have to be careful or you'll get time jumps, and it's just the public API so it's just a narrow window around the current price.
If that's still good enough to be interesting to you, you're welcome to a copy of what I have. The only price is that I want to see more awesome pictures, especially around interesting events.
That sounds like a great offer! It's a huge data set. Did you ever zip it? Do you have all the raw data like timestamp+values?
I don't as my normalization already destroyed most of the data but with all the data I'd like to try and render a fly through that canyon with maybe some landmarks for events in bitcoins history.
I guess there is quite some challenge to get the data into some rendering software. A height field of about 300k samples of a price range of 1$ to 20$ at a 1ct. granularity and a 16bit precision for each accumulated value. Most rendering tools allow to import height fields as gray scale pictures. This one would be 300k x 2k x 2B = 1.2GB. Guess that is challenging also as the 2B/pixel is non-standard but necessary imho.
