In this blog I’d like to “formally” present a new chart layout that I turned into a plugin for d3, the loom! It creates a butterfly/double axe shaped visual connecting two different groups by a numeric value. Such as the words (the value) spoken by the different member of the FellowShip (one group) at the different locations (the second group) in the Lord of the Rings movies. In this blog I’ll show you how to create your own and deep dive into the diverse settings of the loom and the effects that each setting has. I hope it’ll help you to create your own loom chart at some point!
