I built a Datawrapper chart that doesn't look like a Datawrapper chart anymore 🤔

This is also the last Weekly Chart that I wrote...weekly. Starting next week, all of us start charting & writing. I explain the reasons here: blog.datawrapper.de/weekly-cha

I updated the palette helper I made 5 years ago! Lots of new features:
- quick-editing of input colors
- added charts for saturation+hue
- added colorblind check and simulator
- fixed url serialization bug

Happy coloring!

Until the end of August, the @datavisclub@twitter.com will work through "Observe, Collect, Draw!" by @stefpos@twitter.com & @giorgialupi@twitter.com. I wrote about why you should join us here: blog.datawrapper.de/datavis-bo

I thought it's fun to document my process in the following tweets:

Hi, folks. I no longer have the capacity to run vis.social. Thank you for all of your donations over the past year to cover the costs. We're now spending ~$55/mo. on hosting, plus some administrative costs (like the domain name).

Anyone interested in shepherding vis.social?

Shameless selfpromotion coming in 😆 :

So scary DataViz had to post it here!

Just last night I was thinking that maybe I was being too paranoid about Google's tracking habits. I mean, after all, I'd gone through their privacy audit and disabled (or so I thought) all of the tracking stuff that I didn't want to participate in, maybe I could use their products as long as I carefully monitored my privacy settings. Then this morning I see this:

Can hardly be called a DataViz. I have more elaborated visualizations in mind, but we ran out of time. And the main focus was to get it running again so the scientists in the artic can check if the stations are working properly.

Finished the line charts collection of Greenland data. The data is collected on different stations in the artic.
