The visualization ArtScope¬†shows by now 6491 artworks of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in a “map-like” grid. If you are interested in an artwork you can zoom in or drag the “magnifying glass” to the next work of art.

The artworks are arranged by acquisition date.

ArtScope is more an interface than a visualization, but it was one of the first approaches to show the collections of a museum in a different way.

Developed by Stamen in 2007.
