Hi Friends -
Onwards to this week's links...
Welcome to issue 138 of the DashingD3js.com Weekly Newsletter.
- El Patrón De Los Números Primos - Prime Number Patterns
For each natural number n, we draw a periodic curve starting from the origin, intersecting the x-axis at n and its multiples. The prime numbers are those that have been intersected by only two curves: the prime number itself and one...Below the currently highlighted number, we also show its sum of divisors σ(n), and its aliquot sum s(n) = σ(n) - n, which indicate whether the number is prime, deficient, perfect or abundant...Based on Sobre el patrón de los números primos by Omar E. Pol...

- Mapping Twitter Topic Networks: From Polarized Crowds To Community Clusters
Conversations on Twitter create networks with identifiable contours as people reply to and mention one another in their tweets. These conversational structures differ, depending on the subject and the people driving the conversation. Six structures are regularly observed: divided, unified, fragmented, clustered, and inward and outward hub and spoke structures. These are created as individuals choose whom to reply to or mention in their Twitter messages and the structures tell a story about the nature of the conversation...
This site intends to provide a comprehensive data visualization library. The top navigation (Attributes to Rank) is organized by functional purpose. The purpose statement to each category is goals driven and aligns categories to commonly asked questions...
- When Maps Lie - Tips From A Geographer On How To Avoid Being Fooled
A map is not just a picture—it’s also the data behind the map, the methodology used to collect and parse that data, the people doing that work, the choices made in terms of visualization and the software used to make them. A map is also a representation of the world...Certain things are always left off or highlighted while others are altered, as no map can show everything at once. All of those choices and biases, conscious or not, can have important effects on the map itself. We may be looking at something inaccurate, misleading, or incorrect without realizing it...
- A Dialogue Between A Reporter And A Visualization Journalist
I wonder if so many reporters/editors (writers) realize how arrogant they sound when they recklessly tell visual journalists how to do their jobs.* It's insulting and it must stop outright. They need to get some of their own medicine, for a change. Give it to them. And never give up...
- Changing Price Of Food Items And Horizon Graphs
I've been messing with horizon graphs to look at patterns over time. Software company Panopticon, now called Datawatch, devised them back in 2008, but you never see them used — probably because no one knows how to read them. The chart type is actually quite nice though, once you get the hang of it...Below shows the percentage change in price for select food items, since 1990. Estimates are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and adjusted for inflation (of course)...

- Drag And Drop Visuals In Your Interactive Dashboard – Gridster & D3.js
Our AIM: Implement Gridster.js library in our interactive dashboard to enable rearrangement and re-sizing of visuals...We will be taking the analytics dashboard that we built using D3.JS,DC.JS, Node JS and MongoDB and apply Gridster.js to it resulting in a dashboard in which we can rearrange the visuals on a grid without losing the interactive features like drill-down and filtering...
- A GeoQuiz Made With D3js
My older daughter Farida is studying the Catalan regions, called comarques. There are some online resources to test your knowledge about the regions, but we didn’t like them, so we decided to design and code one...You can check the game: http://geoexamples.com/comarques/...
- Visualizing A Genome Annotation File (GFF)
Hope that you had a great past week and that next week is even better!
Wishing you the best,
