Stacked Bar Charts Explained, Vizzies 2017 Winners, Global Temperature Graph, Map of Sea Level Rise | DataViz WeeklyMarch 31st, 2017 by AnyChart Team
Today is the 13th Friday of the 2017 year, and another weekend is coming! In the meantime, we invite you to enjoy another portion of last week’s notable works in the data visualization field. The first highlight here is the article about stacked bar charts and how to use them, written by our Data Visualization Expert Vitaly Radionov specifically for Smashing Magazine. After briefing you on that, we’ll also take a look at this year’s winners of the Vizzies Challenge, a graph of global temperature change from 2500 BC to 2040 AD, and a (scary) map visualization of the sea level rise expected in the (near?) future.
We as ‘mere’ humans are not very good at processing raw statistical data visually when it’s delivered to us in an unrefined form. We are, however, very good in detecting complex patterns when data is presented to us in a graph or a chart. It is therefore no wonder that as a developer you often get the requirement to represent data in a more comprehensible form. When you want to visualize data in the SAP Web UI in a more graphical way the standard possibilities available to you are rather limited. Luckily there are ways to overcome these limitations. When you combine SAP with the graphical power of AnyChart JS Charts a whole range of new possibilities will become available to you.
In this blog I will describe how you can integrate AnyChart in the SAP Web UI with relative ease, how you can feed AnyChart objects with SAP data using both a ‘pull’ and a ‘push’ mechanism and how you can respond in the SAP backend to the events triggered from user interaction with an AnyChart object.

With the explosion of data in the past few years, the relevance of understanding it better has grown to the highest extent. That is why expertise in interactive charting and dashboard design, as well as in the whole big Data Visualization and Data Science fields in general, has become so important nowadays. In fact, it is usually rather difficult to understand raw data as deeply and quickly as needed. Luckily, neat visual representation of information can be helpful in clarifying even very large amounts of data, discovering and exploring patterns in data, and then making (right) data-driven decisions.
Creating dashboards is a great way of transforming diverse relevant data into informative, insightful visualizations as the basis for further analysis. In order to obtain the highest possible efficiency, they should be insightful, featuring robust usability, and visually (and aesthetically) appealing.
Today we’ll talk about the most notable dashboard design trends. Understanding them is very important to each data professional who wants to further improve their skills by keeping up with the times and adhering to the best practices.

Technical Support Dashboard is a great tool to keep track of all the support and related activities in your company. It can be very helpful in both monitoring your support team’s performance and revealing issue patterns in customer requests for further use by product strategy and development officers. And when you already have data, all you need is to decide how to visualize it, preferably quickly, easily, and fully compatibly with your own corporate software.
