2014 in review – visualizations to summarize my blog on data visualization

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Assignment 4 – Processing

Though I haven’t made it so a user can select a file, I did make:

-a bar chart


-a scatterplot


-a scatterplot matrix


-parallel coordinates


I am pretty proud of what I was able to accomplish and feel like with a given data set I can create a visualization that I want to. I was able to add some interactive highlighting visualizations and provided a tooltip with the actual data values (to all except splom and parallel). I was not able to figure out filters with sliders yet, unless you count the filter in the parallel coordinates. I used the iris flower data set. Plan to add cars! I emailed Prof. Alark the zip (GitHub still thinks I am a robot…)
