@drawingdata (2/2) Although I'm not sure that with what your data represent steplines are the best choice. Perhaps a stacked bar system could help maintain the time series in the way you are saying while producing a less crowded picture with no overlapping elements. This is a nice recent example of what I'm trying to say: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/ng-interactive/2018/may/04/local-council-election-results-2018-in-full
@drawingdata hello! Here's a few thoughts: with your data, I think I would go with linear interpolation, if I had to choose between the two, to show trends of how election results changed in time, with highlights+labels as you did later for steplines.
I like steplines bc when they are many, as in your case, the distribution at each step becomes very clear. I also agree with your thought "it's a better representation of the data" since it's not a continuous set of data but rather discrete. (1/2)
@amitkaps thanks! I like that project a lot, excellent example
Hey y'all! Can you help me find the best use cases of data representation that utilise sound and/or motion as encoding channels? I'd love to reach out to the whole community for a massive #brainstorm 😀
@TeaStats awesome! Thank you, will tune in tomorrow!
@TeaStats I'd like to follow on live-stream! Can you keep us posted with a link? Thanks!
@mattbrehmer I've checked it out and it really looks like something very useful for my research! Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, my final dissertation is going to be on April 20th, just the day before the workshop is held!! It would have been super nice to attend. I'll make sure to keep in touch in the near future though if this is cool yeah? Thanks again!
@mattbrehmer hi! I’m really interested in hearing your thoughts about designing dataviz for mobile, I’m working on my M.Sc. Thesis. It would be super great if we could exchange a few words by any chance? 😀
@Luca cool! And thanks for sharing the code :)
@Luca does the tool use live data? :) maybe it’s written somewhere and I haven’t seen it already
Hello vis people! I'm Alessandro, currently M.Sc. candidate at DensityDesign and Data Viz designer at Accurat.
Can't wait to be learning something from everyone here! I also look forward to randomly throwing some of my work in for discussion!
Oh and 🍍
