- Hexbins! In Data Visualization
Binning is a general term for grouping a dataset of N values into less than N discrete groups. These groups/bins may be spatial, temporal, or otherwise attribute-based. In this post I’m only talking about spatial (long-lat) and 2-dimensional attribute-based (scatterplot) bins.
- Hexbins With D3 And Leaflet Maps
This week I have been working on maps that present data using hexbins. This is a novel way to present information and can be a powerful way to deal with cases where there are a large number data points. In this post I am using data from Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts as a way to test out this way of mapping information.

D3.js Reading and Videos
- Visualizing A One-Way ANOVA Using D3.js
- D3.js Minimap Pan And Zoom
I put together a little demo to show how to setup a canvas with a corresponding minimap that displays an overview of the contents of the canvas. You can use the mousewheel on either the main canvas or the minimap to zoom in and out. You can also drag either the image or the minimap frame to pan around.
- UK Temperature History
Data Visualization built with D3.js by Peter Cook. Explore the temperature in the United Kingdom since 1910 by scrolling the page up and down. Visit years marked in red or blue that have significant weather events. You can also sort by year, maximum, minimum or mean temperature
Hope that you had a great past week and that next week is even better!
Wishing you the best,
