Personal & Learning
I often get emails from people asking me diverse question about my path into data visualization. And after typing out my story for the
Nth time I thought it might actually be easier if I just place it in a blog post. That way I can be more detailed & even add some images (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧
Presentation & Interactive
I created the Hacking the Visual Norm talk for the Fronteers Conference, held in Amsterdam on October 6 & 7th 2016. During the talk I try to show several ways that you can go beyond the norm in the visualization of data. I use examples from both a business environment (things I made for Adyen or Deloitte) and personal projects. It revolves around Combining, Re-using, Designing & Hacking your visuals into something more effective and engaging.
Presentation & Data Art
D3.js & Interactive
I wanted to share something I recently build with d3.js which might be useful for other people as well; a bar chart in which you can “brush”. Handy for when you have a lot of categories/bars to show with limited space, but you don’t want to only show the top X. By using the brush technique, you give the choice to the user. They can decide which portion of the bars to see, only the top 5, bottom 10, 20 in the middle, or all at once.
Tutorial & D3.js
I’ve already shown the diversity of using gradients in data visualization in several other blogs in this series. But you don’t even have to use gradients as something that runs smoothly from one color to another. They can be very handy for abrupt changes as well. The first time I ended up using this technique was when I became interested in the popularity of baby names.
