We saw a wide variety of tools used in the first challenge of 2019: from the familiar to new players on the market and from drag & drop GUI solutions to programming languages. Read on to see the wide array of instruments available for visualizing data and learn from others as they attempt these tools for the first time.
It’s a new year: time to reflect and consider how can we push ourselves out of our comfort zones? I’m an advocate of productive discomfort and trying new things. In this challenge, I encourage you to try a new tool for visualizing data and share your results and related commentary.
Holiday music, cookie calories, winter temperatures, and more! Many tools, graphs, and festive encodings were used to visualize data related to the holidays. Hope you enjoy browsing the great variety of topics and designs—happy holidays!
