How to Make Bubble Maps in JavaScript

November 16th, 2022 by Shachee Swadia

Bubble Maps in JavaScript HTML5Map charts are a great way to put data in a geographical context. And they are not difficult to create! I am eager to demonstrate that by walking you through the creation of a bubble map, one of the most popular types data maps, with the help of JavaScript.

A bubble map is a combination of a bubble chart and a geographical map. It uses circles of different sizes (and sometimes colors) to indicate numeric values relating to locations or territories.

In this tutorial, I will be visualizing the data on gasoline prices across the United States. They saw record highs this summer after a surge fueled by the outbreak of the Russia–Ukraine conflict. The first, basic bubble map will display the gas prices in July by state. The final one will add the magnitude of the change since February 23, one day before Russia launched an attack on Ukraine.

Follow along and you’ll learn to build beautiful interactive maps in JS with ease and no problem!

How to Create Word Tree Using JavaScript

October 14th, 2022 by Awan Shrestha

A word tree chart in JavaScriptIt is a pure fact that a graphical or pictorial representation of data, known as a data visualization, conveys information faster than raw data in arrays, spreadsheets, or dense reports. Charts make data easier to understand, which further helps to quickly develop valuable insights. Interesting, right? Now, let’s have a look at one chart type called a word tree and see how to build it with ease.

A word tree is a data visualization form designed to show multiple parallel sequences of words (or phrases) as they appear in a text. Analyzing texts becomes easier with word trees as they display, by means of a branching structure, how selected words are connected to others.

In this tutorial, I will walk you through the process of creating a beautiful word tree chart with JavaScript (HTML5). The text being visualized will be the famous speech “I Have a Dream” by minister and civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. Each step will be explained in detail, and you’ll see everything is pretty simple. Sit tight and enjoy the learning!

Creating Circle Packing Chart with JavaScript

September 8th, 2022 by Awan Shrestha

Circle Packing Chart on a web pageA circle packing chart is a common data visualization technique for representing hierarchically organized data through nested circles. Due to the similarity to a treemap, which uses nested rectangles for the same purpose, sometimes it is called a circular treemap. Introduced to data analysis by American mathematician William Thurston in 1985, circle packings greatly reveal the hierarchical structure of data.

I want to show how you can easily build an elegant interactive circle packing chart with the help of JavaScript! In this step-by-step tutorial, we will be representing the world’s 100 wealthiest people in 2022 by country and industry, according to Forbes’ list of billionaires. So, get your packings done and get ready as your brain is going to get slightly richer!

Building Scatter Chart in JavaScript

June 17th, 2022 by Shachee Swadia

A Scatter Chart Built in JavaScript Using AnyChart JS ChartsWith data everywhere around us, it is imperative to know how to quickly create visualizations that help reveal trends and patterns in it. Today, let’s learn how to build a scatter chart in just a few lines of simple JavaScript code!

Scatter charts, or scatter plots, are designed to identify a correlation between typically two variables. In such graphics, the data is visualized as a set of points usually displayed as markers. The position of each marker indicates the values of the variables along the horizontal and vertical axes.

In this tutorial, we will be visualizing international and domestic sales of the 1000 highest-grossing Hollywood movies as of January 2022. So, get your popcorn and start watching the JS scatter chart development!
