New visualization that explores government metrics over time via connected scatterplots http://vallandingham.me/world_gov_challenge/ - would be fun to do a i like / i wish / i wonder kind of critique on things like this.

Heading home from #Openvisconf, which was really, really good! Hard to identify a common theme or thread but a great summary of what’s going on right now.
My highlights: Shan Carter’s talk on sci comm / distill.pub, @maarten ‘s talk on xerographics, Aaron Williams on mapping segregation in the US.. lots of good for thought.
Also interesting that the big themes of the last years: storytelling and physical/analogue viz were not really discussed (or selected by the committee).
sneak preview of new blog post I've been working on. Join me for an introduction to Altair - a new(ish) python package for declarative interactive data visualization!
done in my traditional far-to-wordy rambling style.
But I am really excited about using Altair, and hopefully you will be too after reading 1/3rd this post before giving up and just reading the Altair docs!
Hey! Everybody should come to OpenVis Conf this year! It’s in Paris - which is a lot closer to some people than it’s ever been.
We have nothing but amazing speakers lined up, and some really great workshops that you can attend.
Check it out!
Hey everyone! Stefanie Posavec and I are offering two full-day data visualization workshops in June! One in Chicago and the other in DC. Check it out: https://policyviz.com/2018/03/06/data-designed-workshop/
Our paper "Using Animation to Alleviate Overdraw in Multiclass Scatterplot Matrices" will be presented at CHI 2018 on Thu 4/26 at 11am in Montréal!
Our approach uses a simple animation loop to alleviate overdraw in one of the hardest settings---multiclass SPLOMs.
It is work with our former undergrad student Helen Chen, myself, Alark Joshi, & Beste Yuksel at USF, Eric Ragan at Texas A&M, and Lane Harrison at WPI.
See a demo and more at http://vgl.cs.usfca.edu/animated-sploms/
“Strange Bird” is a new podcast “about the data behind our everyday lives with Mona Chalabi.”
And it’s published through a new UI by the Guardian Mobile Lab — part audio player, part chatbot, part photo viewer. It includes lots of charts, too!
In case you're interested how the auto-detection of colorblind issues in Datawrapper works, I wrote it all down in an interactive blog post https://www.vis4.net/blog/2018/02/automate-colorblind-checking/ https://vis.social/media/JoiAHRvIu0BvxK8Mu8o https://vis.social/media/Jv8iNeTpJVhIjulb_Os
