Dig the Data, StoreGrader edition

A new Dig the Data was published yesterday. It has some data insights from StoreGrader which is an app I have been working on for a while now.

For this edition of Dig the Data, I wanted to create a nice looking interactive infographic, and I wanted to combine both static and interactive elements. My previous Dig the Data visualization was quite minimal, but had full interactivity. However, it lacked a bit of the feeling of “niceness” that some static graphics can provide (as well as the magic touch of a designer, which I am not). A good example of this “niceness” is the first Dig the Data, where the entire visualization is a static image created by my colleague Julia.

This time, I teamed up with Maria to create a visualization that combines both static insights (with a bit of animation) as well as interactive graphs to explore.

I am very pleased with the result, and you can check out the post here.

Dig the Data, Heating Up

Time flies when you are having fun, and it has definitely been a while since the last edition of Dig the Data. But now it is here: Dig the Data, Heating Up.

This time, d3 behaved very well and was much easier to use than before. Who would have known that practice actually makes things easier :-)

Dig the Data, Anniversary Edition

I made a little Anniversary Edition of Dig the Data. This one is much bigger in scope than the last one, and it also took quite a while to get everything working. Data visualization with D3 is still quite new to me, but it is exciting to not only crunch data but also visualize it. Enjoy :-)
