August 31st, 2021 by AnyChart Team

Nemus forestry data visualization system created by Cesefor in cooperation with Regional Government of Castile and LeonMany thousands of developers worldwide use our solutions for interactive data visualization. So it is hardly surprising to come across a graphic powered by AnyChart here or there. Some projects, however, deserve a showcase. Such a new interesting one demonstrating great use of AnyChart has recently come to our notice and we are happy to let you know about it.

A Spanish nonprofit, Cesefor used our JavaScript charting library to visualize forestry data for the Spanish region of Castile and León in a whole lot of different charts and maps, aiming to make relevant insights easily accessible and actionable for sustainability.

The project is called Nemus. Shh, it is still in beta, not yet officially launched. But Rodrigo Gómez Conejo, Head of ICT and Knowledge Management Area at Cesefor, allowed us to let you in and even gave us a brief interview disclosing some peculiar details about the system and how AnyChart is employed — check it out below.

Building JS Resource Gantt Chart to Visualize Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Schedule

August 17th, 2021 by Shachee Swadia

A Mac screen with an interactive JavaScript Resource Gantt chart visualizing the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic schedule by venueSmart resource allocation is a must to achieve a high level of operational efficiency. Aiming to ensure it, project management professionals commonly rely on a special form of data visualization called a Resource Gantt chart. Creating graphics like this may seem daunting at first sight. But I am here to show you an easy way to build Resource Gantt charts with JS using a compelling, topical example.

Resource Gantt charts, also known as simply Resource charts, consist of bars oriented along the horizontal axis. Each bar visualizes a resource used by an activity, with the length representing the duration while that resource is occupied by that activity. The left and right edges of the bars display the start and end times. The resources, or event labels, are listed on the left. The dates and times are shown in the header.

Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games are just around the corner. So, I decided to visualize their sports program by venue. Follow along with this stepwise tutorial and you will learn how to create a cool JavaScript Resource Gantt chart visualizing the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic schedule!

Yarra Hills Secondary College Uses AnyChart to Visualize Student Progress on Digital Data Wall

August 10th, 2021 by AnyChart Team

Official logo of Yarra Hills Secondary College using AnyChart to visualize student progress on Digital Data WallLeading the enterprise data visualization market, AnyChart is also widely used by not-for-profit organizations in sectors such as education. Stephen Blackwell from Yarra Hills Secondary College (Australia) has recently shown us another great example of such an application.

Data walls have become a widespread practice in schools across the globe, letting teachers track and benchmark student progress to create effective learning environment. In many cases, they are just physical. For Yarra Hills, Stephen created a digital one that supercharges the overview with the help of well-thought-out visualizations powered by our JavaScript charting library.

Stephen kindly agreed to tell us about his Digital Data Wall project and how AnyChart is implemented. Read our fresh interview below. As you can imagine the original web app is for internal use only, but if you want to take a glance here is a copy with de-identified student data (password anychArt) and this is an example of an individual student profile.
