The pandemic has kept us at home, shifting our spatial imaginaries and how we experience the city. It has also shined a new light on the roles of essential workers and those not privileged enough to work from home. And as we come out of lockdown, there’s an opportunity to see the city (past, present,…

Data by Design: Automating the Chapter Timeline

URL: Data by Design: Automating the Chapter Timeline
Each chapter of Data by Design has a chapter timeline, which places images and visualizations on a vertical minimap, allowing the user to get a sense of the chapter and their progress within it at a glance. Additionally, all user highlights will be visualized on the timeline as they’re made. The map will allow the user to click objects within it and be taken to the corresponding spot in the chapter. Embracing the notion of a “meta-visualization,” each chapter’s timeline is styled after the main visualization in that chapter. The Peabody timeline at time of writing   Initially, the chapter timeline…

Data by Design: Static Visualizations for Playfair’s Chapter

URL: Data by Design: Static Visualizations for Playfair’s Chapter
Besides the “Export and Import to and from all North-America” scrollytelling visualization, I also created several static visualizations using d3 to showcase Playfair’s method with modern technologies. The first two visualizations use the same data of Playfair’s import-export chart. The stacked bar graph on the left uses a similar axis and labels as the import-export chart. I have each bar with constant width representing each year we have in the CSV and positioned chronologically. For year 1770 to year 1782, where we have detailed data points, the bars are overlapping each other. The Coxcomb graph on the right uses a…

Data by Design: Code Reuse and Visualizations

URL: Data by Design: Code Reuse and Visualizations
When I joined, the team had done a considerable amount of research, design, and requirements exploration in addition to our small prototype. One of the ideas continually emphasized was that the book would be heavily data-driven. This can be a bit of a buzzword and a swiss-army-knife of a term – the first two D’s in the popular web visualization tool D3 are “data-driven,” for a technical example, while data-driven can characterize approaches in other disciplines, like data journalism. Data by Design is situated in a broad meaning of the category – we’re data-driven in the sense that the scope…

In Playfair’s chapter, we remade his original “Imports and Exports to and from North-America” graph with d3. We also breakdown his process of making visualizations with engraving and compared it to the modern way of using software tools. Playfair’s original visualization D3 recreation of Playfair’s visualization The recreation integrated the scrolly-telling feature we had for this project, breaking down the process of Playfair’s engraving and transformed it into today’s data plotting method with d3.

On the front page, we decided to implement a timeline below the main title to give our readers an overview of all the visualizations we will be covering in the book. The timeline consists of three main parts, the gray horizontal bar representing time from the year 1786 to the year 1900, multiple blue vertical bars at each time mark representing the number of visualization we collected for that specific year, and the image frames that showcase the thumbnails of those visualizations. The image information is stored in the points array in the data function of the Vue component. The…
