Recap of the Week – 10/25/2015 October 25th, 2015 by Margaret Skomorokh

This week (as always) we have shared on AnyChart Facebook Page and Twitter some interesting information on data visualization and programming:

  • Travel Dashboard – A Look Back at Recent Trends. Wherever travelers go, they’re online. Whether planning a trip, navigating a new city, or sharing vacation memories, they turn to the web, using whatever device is at hand. This has completely reshaped the path to purchase, creating many moments of intent. The Google data in this dashboard provides a glimpse into these moments.
  • Eve is a set of tools that may help you think. Currently, Eve includes a database, a temporal logic query language, and an IDE. See this tutorial below to walk through the features of Eve.
  • Check out these beautiful visualizations of poems, created by German data artist Diana Lange (See more here.)
  • A Matter of Perspective – What happens if you cut the shoreline of a lake and unfurl it? See it for yourself!

AnyStock 7.7.0 Features

AnyChart Stock and Financial Charts (AnyStock) is a JavaScript-based financial charting solution. AnyStock technology turns your real-time data into highly sophisticated interactive web charts. Designed to display date- and time-based information, AnyStock is an ideal tool for client reporting and performance reporting applications, bringing the analysis of your financial data to life.

Stock Data Engine
We are proud to introduce anychart.data.Table, a data layer designed specifically to meet Stock and Financial Charts needs. Beside basic features like data streaming, data mapping, and transaction-based data flow, anychart.data.Table provides the ability to search and select data by DateTime intervals, which allows to implement custom UI elements based on this data.

Ultimate Performance
Good rendering performance is essential for Stock and Financial Charts, and AnyStock meets this requirement in full. Our performance tests show the ability to render 300,000 points in less than a second on an average PC. The data stream can append 10,000 data points in 100 milliseconds. You can test it yourself on the performance test page.

This release of AnyStock includes basic chart and plot layout options and basic features (such as Scroller, Legend, and Value Highlighter), along with the Column, Line, and OHLC series types. If you are wondering where the technical indicators, other series types, event markers and drawings are, the answer is simple: in our roadmap! Check it out and see that we will catch up very fast.

AnyMap 7.7.0 New Features

Map Collection
Without geographical data, it is impossible to create a data visualization related to geographic areas. We are happy to introduce our new Map Collection. For the moment it contains 200+ country maps and one world map. We are planning to extend this collection, and, of course, the ability to create custom maps is available.
See Map Collection CDN Page >>

Bubble/Proportion Maps
Bubble maps (also known as Proportion maps) are usually used to display or compare quantitative data related to geographic areas, be it election results, sales statistics per region, or earthquake magnitude.
