AnyChart Used to Power Charts in Data Science Teaching Project Made at Edinburgh Napier University

September 16th, 2021 by AnyChart Team

JavaScript charts powered by AnyChart in a data science teaching website project created at Edinburgh Napier UniversityAt AnyChart, we are eager to support education projects by letting their creators work gratis with the same data visualization solutions used by the world’s leading companies to build interactive charts.

Recently, a group of students at Edinburgh Napier University — including Martin McVey, Tibor Toth, Daniel Glen, Flynn Kearney, David Stewart, and John Frampton — reached out to us as they were building a website to assist with the learning of data science. And we were more than happy to provide them with a free license for the use of our JavaScript charting library.

The website is now available to the public, presenting a wide range of chart types with real-world examples along with questions and answers. Acknowledged as one of the top projects in the university year and awarded with a prize from Computershare, it is to be used for teaching about data visualization and analytics in Scottish schools.

We thought you could be interested to not only check out the website but also learn some more about the project and its developers’ experience with AnyChart. So we had a quick talk on that with Martin McVey from the team. Read below.
