The Miso Project
luiy's insight:

Miso is an open source toolkit designed to expedite the creation of high-quality interactive storytelling and data visualisation content.

 

Miso consists of Dataset, a JavaScript client-side data management and transformation library, Storyboard, a state and flow-control management library & d3.chart, a framework for creating reusable charts with d3.js.

 

Miso is in active development, and will have components released as they are completed. Follow along: @TheMisoProject & Github

Generating #d3j s Motion Charts from rCharts | #Dataviz

Generating #d3j s Motion Charts from rCharts | #Dataviz | e-Xploration | Scoop.it
Remember Gapminder, the animated motion chart popularised by Hans Rosling in his TED Talks and Joy of Stats TV programme? Well it's back on TV this week in Don't Panic - The Truth About Population,...
luiy's insight:

Whilst considering what materials we could use to support the programme, we started looking for ways to make use of the Gapminder visualisation tool that makes several appearances in the show. Unfortunately, neither Gapminder (requires Java?), nor the Google motion chart equivalent of it (requires Flash?), appear to work with a certain popular brand of tablet that is widely used as a second screen device…

 

Looking around the web, I noticed that that Mike Bostock had produced a version of the motion chart using d3.js: The Wealth & Health of Nations. Hmmm…

 

Playing with that rendering on a tablet, I had a few problems when trying to highlight individual countries – the interaction interfered with an invisible date slider control – but a quick shout out to my OU colleague Pete Mitton resulted in a tweaked version of the UI with the date control moved to the side. I also added a tweak to allow specified countries to be highlighted. You can find an example here (source).
