Atari disk data visualizer

Recommended Posts

Michael Sternberg created an amazing Atari disk data visualizer. It shows which of the disk’s tracks contains data.

The visualizer is a bash shell script that calls the ImageMagick convert and montage tools. The code is on github: https://github.com/michaelsternberg/atrviz

 

It hasn't been tested yet on enhanced or dual-density ATR disk images.

Here's an example disk of the output:

I don't know if I'd call it special, maybe 'more flexible'.

 

As Nezgar pointed out, no track gap or sector skew, but then, this isn't a real flux visualisation.
