25 must-see Summer Music Festivals in Europe

That's why the CartoDB team made a list of the 25 must-see music festivals in Europe based on the list and ordered by the lineup rank. This is a demo of what you can build using Oydssey.js, a library for building interactive stories created by CartoDB with the support of the Knight Foundation. Oydssey.js is an open-source tool that allows you to combine maps, narratives, and other multimedia into a beautiful story. A simple way for journalists, designers and creators to weave interactive stories.

Pictograms, or isotypes, in the form of repeating icons, can be used to effectively contrast quantity/magnitude comparisons in infographics and data visualisation.

Pictogram grid in d3js

For more background information on the topic, I'd recommend the article by Robert Kosara: The ISOTYPE may be close to 100 years old, but many of the ideas behind it are still very relevant and visualization might benefit from considering some of them. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), the vector markup language exploited by d3.js, makes it easy to generate repeating graphics by declaring icon geometry once in the <defs> element and then calling them whenever needed via a <use> element. This simple example shows how to use d3 to create a grid of icons. A jQuery slider shows how those icons can then be addressed for interactive purposes. Day / Hour Heatmap. Streamgraph.

Sunburst Trees This is an example of using d3.layout.partition to generate a zoomable sunburst tree derived from hierarchical data. A sunburst tree is a radial space-filling visualisation, analagous to an icicle tree. Colours The original colours appear to have been selected by the designer, as opposed to matching any standard colour name palettes.

The inner node colours are calculated automatically by taking the average of the two child nodes in HSL colour space. Labels The label colour of black or light grey is automatically chosen by calculating the colour brightness of each node.

By Sergiy Nesterko on January 30th, 2012 Consider the following plot: The image above is an SVG created using d3.js.

How to convert d3.js SVG to PDF « Work Updates

I am going to use it in a paper, so need to convert it to PDF. It so happened that how to do this is not common knowledge, as is mentioned in this blog (which is, by the way, a good and balanced source of information relevant to our profession). Here is a short tutorial on how to do it: When creating an SVG, style it inside your .js source with Javascript, for example like this is done with d3 for the image above: Then open the webpage containing the SVG in your browser (I am using Chrome most of the time, for example), open Javascript console (use Alt-Command-i if you are on a Mac to open developer tools and click Console), paste in this code and press Enter: Credit for this code snippet goes to Chris Viau.

Force Test. General Update Pattern, III. By adding transitions, we can more easily follow the elements as they are entered, updated and exited.

General Update Pattern, III

Separate transitions are defined for each of the three states. Note that no transition is applied to the merged enter + update selection; this is because it would supersede the transition already scheduled on entering and updating elements. It's possible to schedule concurrent elements by using transition.transition or by setting, but it's simpler here to only transition the x-position on update; for entering elements, the x-position is assigned statically. Want to read more? Try these tutorials: D3.js. Programming. I thought this would be a simple task.


However it took a bit of work to get things going. There are a few ways of doing this but here is how I handled the problem (not saying this is the best way). I need to have the mouse scroll wheel and a zoom slider work together. For the slider I used a lightweight library called Dragdealer, the main reason I used a library is because I wanted a vertical slider like google maps, and the HTML5 range input was still not 100%. Although it will likely be a good option soon.

Add a the zoom behavior to the svg (I’m making a force graph, so this might be different) Here we are adding the zoom behavior and capturing when the mousewheel is used, at least for web-kit and firefox. ZoomFactor is a constant you can set to set the initial zoom level. And then in the zoom widget or range input update you would call transformVis with its stored value.

The updateGraph function does the d3 stuff, it calls this function to get the new data object:
