Speaking of visualization of web analytics – Visitorville 3D

Vv3dinsidepartysmallFrom an email link from Lauren to http://blog.outer-court.com/archive/2005-11-22-n58.html I visited VisitorVille web statistics for the first time.  Brilliant.  Not sure how it would scale, but what a cool refreshing new look at understanding social patterns.

What it appears to do well is show you the progression over time of traffic.  What is still missing apparently is an easy method of drawing conclusions about motives based on large amounts of aggregate data without walking through every site path.  That problem I will leave to the Web Analytics Association (disclosure: WAA is a Tendenci client of ours so I am biased.)
