June 17th, 2022 by Shachee Swadia

A Scatter Chart Built in JavaScript Using AnyChart JS ChartsWith data everywhere around us, it is imperative to know how to quickly create visualizations that help reveal trends and patterns in it. Today, let’s learn how to build a scatter chart in just a few lines of simple JavaScript code!

The position of each marker indicates the values of the variables along the horizontal and vertical axes.

Visualizing Abortion Data & Impact of Overturning Roe v. Wade — DataViz Weekly

May 13th, 2022 by AnyChart Team

Visualizations of Abortion Data & Impact of Overturning Roe v. Wade, on DataViz WeeklyA leaked draft of a U.S. Supreme Court opinion suggests that the 1973 Roe v.

In the wake of that, we decided to make a special edition of DataViz Weekly to show you how some of the top publications — The Washington Post, Bloomberg, Reuters, and FiveThirtyEight — used data visualization to communicate the situation with abortions in the country and what is likely to change if the Supreme Court eventually overturns Roe.
