We 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.

When data is all around, it’s no wonder to see charts here or there as they greatly help make sense of it. With thousands of happy customers worldwide, both for our JS charting library and Qlik charting extensions, we have seen countless applications for data visualization across all fields and industries. Some use cases, however, might be less expected than others. What about a website dedicated to literature?
Maigret.de — a remarkable resource about Georges Simenon, a famous Belgian writer best known for creating police detective Jules Maigret — has recently started to publish interactive data graphics revealing interesting patterns and facts in his immense work. All the charts on the website are built with AnyChart.
We have chatted with Maigret.de’s creator Oliver Hahn about his project, data visualizations, and experience using our solutions. Read the quick interview and go check out the website. (Stack: HTML/MySQL.)
Learn more about Redis Inventory and how AnyChart is used there from our quick interview with its creator Aleksandr Obukhov. (Stack: Go/Cobra/Redis.)
At 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.
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.
Many thousands of developers worldwide use our solutions for interactive data visualization. So it is hardly surprising to come across a graphic powered by AnyChart here or there. Some projects, however, deserve a showcase. Such a new interesting one demonstrating great use of AnyChart has recently come to our notice and we are happy to let you know about it.
The project is called Nemus. Shh, it is still in beta, not yet officially launched. But Rodrigo Gómez Conejo, Head of ICT and Knowledge Management Area at Cesefor, allowed us to let you in and even gave us a brief interview disclosing some peculiar details about the system and how AnyChart is employed — check it out below. (Stack: jQuery/CodeIgniter/PostgreSQL.)

Leading the enterprise data visualization market, AnyChart is also widely used by not-for-profit organizations in sectors such as education. Stephen Blackwell from Yarra Hills Secondary College (Australia) has recently shown us another great example of such an application.
Stephen kindly agreed to tell us about his Digital Data Wall project and how AnyChart is implemented. Read our fresh interview below. As you can imagine the original web app is for internal use only, but if you want to take a glance here is a copy with de-identified student data (password anychArt) and this is an example of an individual student profile. (Stack: PHP/MySQL.)
As global leaders in data visualization solutions, we feel it is part of our mission to support educational and research projects by granting their authors a free license to use our products. Les Énigmes de Mercure (The Riddles of Mercury) by Timothée Léchot from the University of Neuchâtel (UniNE) is one such initiative we are proud to back on non-commercial terms.
Recently, we had a quick talk with Timothée and asked him a few questions to learn more about his project and experience visualizing data with the AnyChart JS charting library. Read our quick interview below. (Stack: PHP/MySQL.)

Anton Baranchuk, our CEO, has been recognized by CIOLook Magazine as one of the 10 Most Innovative Business Leaders Revamping the Future! Great news and congratulations to the boss!
Right now, we are excited to share with you the story of his success with AnyChart, the company he co-founded when pursuing a Ph.D. back in 2003 that turned from a small startup to a global data visualization software market leader. This article is published in the dedicated special edition of CIOLook and we are thankful for the opportunity to repost it on our blog.
Data visualization has played an important role during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing governments, scientists, healthcare professionals, and the general public to better understand different aspects of the crisis. There are many illuminating projects all over the web that leverage charts and maps to effectively communicate what the coronavirus statistics have to say. Some of them are using our data visualization tools under a free license provided as part of the special initiative we announced last spring to support the global COVID-19 data analysis effort.
We told you about two examples of such projects earlier: StopCorona and iConcepts SARS-CoV-2 Stats. Now let us introduce you to another interesting resource — COVID-19 Dashboard Tracker by Maxime des Touches. Launched more than a year ago, while Maxime was yet a computer science student, it has turned from a simple online data table into a complex interactive data visualization project offering up-to-date insight into how the pandemic unfolds in France and worldwide.
Maxime kindly agreed to talk to us about his COVID-19 tracker, experience using AnyChart, and the pandemic in general. Check out our quick interview, glance at a few screenshots, and try his open-source dashboard by yourself. (Stack: HTML/jQuery/JSON.)
