I had heard of this tool a few years ago, it's call Processing (more at processing .org) - not sure if any of you have tinkered with the tool. Looks like it has garnered quite a following over the past 3-4 years. As usual, there are folks out there who have mastered parts of the software and created some stunning and highly unique visualizations/projects. One website with spatial undertones is from Jer Thorpe - a former geneticist, turned designer - you can check out his works here.

More Processing examples can be found at processing.org/exhibition - It's a bit of a 'rabbit hole' in that you'll probably blow a couple of hours (without noticing) looking through all the links. Have fun!
Cheers,

I've been working with Processing for the last year or so (tinkering for longer) - It's a very interesting language, not too difficult to learn if you have some background in programming and the community is great. I often find that the main limiter is my ability to conceptualize a project - executing it always seems doable once you get into the work. It's quite powerful when it comes to image/video processing and animating data.

Where I've been focusing lately is integration with the Arduino (http://www.arduino.cc/) prototyping platform for data input/sensor connections.

I'd recommend "Getting Started with Processing" book here: (http://processing.org/shop/).
