Building a JavaScript Scatter Plot Module May 27th, 2020 by Wayde Herman

Tutorial title image of a JavaScript Scatter Plot module (scatter chart)Scatter plots are a great way to visualize data. Data is represented as points on a Cartesian plane where the x and y coordinate of each point represents a variable. These charts let you investigate the relationship between two variables, detect outliers in the data set as well as detect trends. They are one of the most commonly used data visualization techniques and are a must have for your data visualization arsenal!

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to build your very own interactive scatter plot charts using JavaScript.

Ever wondered whether the population of the United States of America were dog people? Well, you’re about to find out!

COVID Tracker StopCorona.info Adds AnyChart JS Charts to Visualize Coronavirus Statistics May 18th, 2020 by AnyChart Team

COVID Tracker StopCorona.info Adds AnyChart JS Charts to Visualize Coronavirus StatisticsCOVID tracker StopCorona.info is using our JavaScript data visualization library to display up-to-date coronavirus statistics in compelling and insightful charts. (Read our interview with its creator to learn how.)

COVID-19 is a global emergency and the fight against it requires a joint effort. We at AnyChart cannot stay aside, too. With a lot of pandemic data out there, from numerous sources and with constant updates, it’s difficult to keep up with how the situation unfolds, let alone making sense of all relevant information in due course. But this is exactly where we can help, with our established charting solutions that can visualize any data on the fly.

We thought you should know we’re ready to give a full-featured non-profit license to all initiatives aiming to tackle the novel coronavirus outbreak. Moreover, we’ve already allowed one project – StopCorona.info – to use our JavaScript charting library for free.

Developed as a not-for-profit initiative by Diffco, a top Silicon Valley app development company, StopCorona is designed to bring transparency to the pandemic situation worldwide. To achieve that, it collects COVID-19 statistics from more than 20 reliable public open data sources, including WHO, CDC, ECDC, CCDC, and NHC to name a few. Now this enormous (and ever-expanding) set of coronavirus data is graphically represented in an analyst-friendly interface powered by AnyChart JS Charts.

As a global leader of data visualization and reporting tools, we at AnyChart were more than happy to support StopCorona by letting them use our award-winning JS charting library absolutely free, under a full-featured non-profit license.

If you guys are building a useful resource for COVID-19 data analytics, try AnyChart and apply for a free license, too. We will gladly provide you with complimentary access to our flexible data visualization solutions. In this way you will get the industry’s best charts for the web or mobile fully at your service, empowering your website visitors or app users to make sense of the myriad COVID numbers at a glance, with great ease.

Creating Choropleth Map Data Visualization Using JavaScript, on COVID-19 Stats May 6th, 2020 by Anastasia Zoumpliou

Creating a choropleth map data visualization using JavaScript (JS HTML5)These days you see choropleth maps in a variety of webpages and utilized for various subjects. Have you wondered how such data visualizations are built? Are you interested in making them by yourself? If so, stay with me through this JS charting tutorial, where I will show you how to create an interactive JavaScript choropleth map from scratch but with ease.

Basic knowledge of HTML5 and JS is always helpful, but even if you are a beginner in this field, understand these four simple steps and you will be able to quickly get a good-looking cross-platform interactive choropleth map data visualization for your app or website!

What exactly are choropleth maps? When you break down the word, you see that choro- (“choros”) means “area” and pleth- (“plethos”) means “multitude.” Exactly, these maps are used to visualize statistical data related to multiple geographic areas. Each area is colored or shaded differently according to the value of the given data, making it easy to grasp how a measurement varies across a territory.

For this JS mapping tutorial, I will use open COVID-19 data to show the distribution of confirmed cases and deaths around the world by country. I will start with a basic choropleth map that will graphically represent the confirmed cases. Then I will add a legend, customize the tooltip, and add bubbles to visualize the number of deaths.

Let’s get started!
