Hey folks. A publication I work for is currently commissioning short pieces of data journalism. Show more
They should be less than 1000w, and about interesting things happening in the world at the intersection of science, technology and culture. It’ll go in our newsletter, so no interactives but images are fine. We can pay £250/$300 for each one, but get your skates on because we need them within the next two weeks. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a pitch if you're interested.
Been playing around with Observable, and I had a go at replicating a lovely bit of computer art I saw in Paris last week: https://beta.observablehq.com/@duncangeere/structure-de-quadrilateres
Hello everyone at OpenVisConf18 in Paris! I basically don't know anyone, so feel free to say hi if you see me wandering around. Would love to meet some new friends :)
Please take a moment and fill out the 2018 Data Visualization Survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSft5kH866hkyVbxqe8Cl7mJDBLbpy5aWIHmYP5ztdO8RDattg/viewform
Elijah Meeks did this last year, and provide lots of good insights and discussions around the data viz industry
Interesting chart from Washington Post, a circle beeswarm, with circle packing within each parent node. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2018/local/school-shootings-database/
I haven't tried it yet, but RStudio just rolled out experimental support for previewing D3 scripts. R to D3 is a pretty scary bridge that I haven't fully made it across, but the r2d3 package looks like it makes the journey a lot easier.
Amazing! @p_maravich successfully identified the viz I was looking for. Thanks everyone :) https://www.behance.net/gallery/25500419/Food-Poisoning-Information-is-Beautiful-Shortlist
Would you kind folks mind helping me track down a viz that I remember seeing, but can't find now? Show more
It was a bubble chart showing different diseases, but each bubble was decorated so they look like the actual pathogen - the bug, or virus, or bacteria that causes it. Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Wrote a bit about how I made my disappearing languages data visualisation, if anyone is interested: https://storythings.com/how-we-made-our-disappearing-languages-data-visualization-d9f22e0580c (the essay itself is here: https://interactive.howwegettonext.com/endangeredlanguages/)
My second-ever data visualisation is live! It's about the world's endangered languages. Any feedback from you seasoned pros would be very welcome :)
👋 I would like to share some of latest visualisation I've been working on with @zimrick .
Together with the talented people at https://datastory.se/, we analysed around 500,000 articles published in Swedish media in 2017 to determine how many times countries were mentioned.
Based on this we produced two stories:
1. a case study on 3 underreported countries (https://datastory.se/story/tre-underbevakade-lander)
2. and index of all the reported countries in 2017 (https://datastory.se/story/medieskugga-index)
I needed to make an SVG star for something at work and it led me down a rabbit hole, as these things do, that led me to make this: https://beta.observablehq.com/@anbnyc/drawing-stars
The next project I'll be working on involves a world map with lots of dots on it. I'm going to need it to look nice on mobile, which feels like it's going to be a challenge. Does anyone have any design tips or examples of world maps where mobile has been done well?
I'm pretty new to all of this stuff, so any feedback from you seasoned professionals would be appreciated.
