How I Created a Sunburst Chart Using JavaScript to Visualize COVID-19 Data

December 8th, 2020 by Shachee Swadia

A tutorial on how to create a sunburst chart using JavaScript to visualize COVID-19 dataAlmost recovered from COVID-19 myself these days, I decided to explore how the world is currently doing, during the pandemic. So I created a sunburst chart to see at a glance what continents and countries are more (and less) affected by the coronavirus than others. The process was quick and I thought someone could be interested to learn about how such data visualizations can be built in a pretty straightforward way, even with very little technical skills. So I also made a tutorial. And here I am — (1) sharing my interactive sunburst chart of COVID cases and (2) describing how I created it using JavaScript in a matter of minutes, step by step!

My JS sunburst chart provides an overview of the situation as of November 24, 2020, and also shows the global count, continent-wide data, and country-wise proportions for the current active COVID-19 cases and deaths. Scroll down to explore it by yourself and check out the tutorial along the way. Here is a sneak peek of the final chart to get you excited:

JavaScript Sunburst Chart to be created

This sunburst charting tutorial is mainly for beginners to data science. So before we get to business, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. I’ll explain what a sunburst chart is and how it works, to start with. Then I’ll show you how to create a cool and colorful interactive visualization like that with JavaScript (and you can do it even if you don’t know it too well). That’s the plan!

How to Create a Venn Diagram with JavaScript

November 11th, 2020 by Shachee Swadia

Venn diagram web chart built using JavaScript, on a laptop screenA Venn diagram is a form of data visualization that uses shapes, generally circles, to show the relationships among groups of things. In this chart type, overlapping areas show commonalities while circles that do not overlap show the traits that are not shared.

Introduced by John Venn, an English mathematician, logician, and philosopher, Venn diagrams are also called set diagrams or logic diagrams since they show possible logical relations between elements of different sets. When drawing such charts, we will most probably be dealing with two or three overlapping circles, since having only one circle would be boring, and having four or more circles quickly becomes really complicated.

Not only are these diagrams good visualizations as a concept, but they also provide a great opportunity to represent qualitative data and a bit of graphic humor. Basically, they are easy and fun to build and use. I’ll show you right now!

Read this tutorial to learn how to easily create a visually appealing and informative Venn diagram for your website or app with the help of JavaScript. All the code used and demonstrated along the tutorial will be freely available for you to play with.

During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with working from home and avoiding food from outside, many of us have become amateur chefs. So, let us use a JS-based Venn diagram to find out what kind of recipe would be the best to try out on a working day — this is going to be a delightful use case to explore!
