CartoSkill is my portfolio
about Visualizing, Analyzing & Utilizing spatial data

The eclectic craft of data visualization embraces several traditionally discrete subjects like cognitive science, graphic design, cartography and computer science. I use this multidisciplinary recipe to visually communicate various real world phenomena occurring in all walks of life around us as filtered through my analytical thinking.

CartoSkill is a key to visually explore, analyze and understand the multifaceted cause of a particular phenomenon and their corelation. Such occurring if represented through simple data sheets will be dry, difficult and boring. But I dish them out effectively and accurately through visuals that are aesthetically appealing, as well as easily perceivable.

Static Visuals


The Static Visuals are complete graphical representations, highlighting the significant aspects of a particular phenomenon and instantly communicating with the viewers. The aesthetically designed visuals are effective in communicating complex data which are otherwise difficult to grasp.


Interactive Visuals


The interactive visuals as prepared on my site take the viewer on an journey through an artistic and innovative medium. My Interactive Visuals are meant to bring home the multivariatedness of a happening creating a deep impression upon the viewer's mind.
