How to Build Box Plot Using JavaScript: Visualizing World Happiness September 22nd, 2020 by Wayde Herman

A box plot visualizing world happiness report data, the cover image for a guide on how to build interactive box plots with JavaScript HTML5Data visualization is an important and sometimes undervalued tool in a data scientist’s toolkit. It allows us to gain an understanding and intuition about the data, through exploratory data analysis, which influences preprocessing, feature engineering, and the correct machine learning algorithm choice. It also helps to better evaluate models and even allows you to spot areas in the data where models could have poor performance.

Taking data visualization one step further by adding interactivity is even more advantageous. By adding interactive elements to your visualizations you create a more engaging experience. This in turn makes a user ‘explore’ visualizations instead of just reading them!

In this tutorial, I will be covering how to build an interactive data visualization, specifically a box plot as an example, using JavaScript and a charting library. I will begin by first briefly covering the basics of box plots before going through the steps of building one and then finally using the technique in a fun example to investigate the distribution of happiness between the different regions of the planet in an attempt to answer the question: ‘Where should you live to be happier?’.

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.
