January 26th, 2022 by AnyChart Team

COVID-19 Risk Assessment App Pandemonium Using AnyChart for Data VisualizationWe continue to support initiatives addressing the pandemic crisis by providing them with a full-featured free license for any of our data visualization tools. Today we are honored to be among the first to talk about a new project that joined this program, an innovative COVID-19 risk assessment app and framework called Pandemonium where all charts and maps are powered by AnyChart.

Built by Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc., a charitable nonprofit founded by MIT alumni, Pandemonium uses sophisticated machine learning algorithms to more accurately model the disease spread and provide a highly personalized evaluation of infection risks. It’s not yet publicly launched as the developers want to add a few more major features and data sources before the official release. But the app is already in the testing phase that the team encourages anyone to join.

We asked Richard Hamlin, CEO at Quantum Risk Analytics, Inc., to tell us more about Pandemonium, how it works, and how our data visualization solutions are used. Read on to know all the details.

How to Make a JavaScript Polar Chart

November 11th, 2021 by Shachee Swadia

A JavaScript polar chart making tutorial based on DVS survey dataPolar charts often look impressive, which makes some people think that creating them is a tricky process demanding plenty of skills and expertise. Well, I am going to debunk this myth right now! Let me show you how to easily visualize data in a beautiful interactive JavaScript Polar Chart.

Fundamentally, a polar chart is a variation of a circular graph drawn with polar coordinates. It can also work well to visualize some sorts of categorical data for comparisons, which is exactly the case I want to demonstrate now. In this tutorial, I will build a column polar chart, with the bars growing from the center of the diagram to represent values with their length.

Data Visualization Society (DVS) conducts an annual State of the Industry survey of data viz practitioners, and I thought it could be a great opportunity to play with some of its latest data. In particular, I wanted to look at the most popular technologies used for data visualization based on the responses. So here, I will produce a JS polar chart that plots the top 15 ones, making up a cool illustrative real-world example.

It will be fun — come along, everyone!

Building a Word Tree Chart with JavaScript

October 4th, 2021 by Shachee Swadia

Word Tree Chart built with JavaScript HTML5 on a screenData visualization is not only useful for communicating insights but also helpful for data exploration. There are a whole lot of different chart types that are widely used for identifying patterns in data. One of the lesser-used chart types is Word Tree. It is a very interesting visualization form, quite effective in analyzing texts. And right now, I will teach you how to quickly create nice interactive word tree charts using JavaScript.

Word trees display how a set of selected words are connected to other words in text data with a branching layout. These charts are similar to word clouds where words that occur more frequently are shown bigger. But they are different in the sense that word trees also show the connection between the words, which adds context and helps find patterns.

In this tutorial, I will create a lovely word tree from the text of the very famous book The Little Prince by French aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Check out a demonstration of the final chart below and keep reading to learn how this and any other interactive JS word tree can be built with ease.

AnyChart Used for Data Visualization in Open-Source Redis Inventory Tool

September 29th, 2021 by AnyChart Team

A sunburst diagram in open-source Redis Inventory tool, visualizing Redis memory usage hierarchically, built with the AnyChart JavaScript charting librarySunburst charts are known to be greatly useful for visualizing hierarchical data structures. So it is no surprise that this chart type became a big hit among our users immediately after we added it to the AnyChart JavaScript library. Because the core of our global customer base is enterprise clients, most of the real-world use cases for our JS sunburst chart are hidden in internal corporate apps. But AnyChart is often picked for data visualization in open projects as well, and we invite you to see a super cool example we have recently found out about — Redis Inventory. It is an open-source tool that makes it easy to view Redis memory usage by key patterns in a hierarchical way, with an interactive sunburst chart in action.

Learn more about Redis Inventory and how AnyChart is used there from our quick interview with its creator Aleksandr Obukhov. (Stack: Go/Cobra/Redis.)
