Data Visualisations in JavaScript

A session at SPA 2012

Tuesday 3rd July, 2012

9:30am to 12:15pm (GMT)

One-line description: Using JavaScript visualisations to answer different questions about data

Session format: Workshop (150 mins) [read about the different session types]

Abstract:The aim of this workshop is to learn different ways of using JavaScript visualisations to interrogate data.

The data we will be using for the workshop is a real work log of a development team, covering about three years.

We will demonstrate the creation of three visualisations to answer three different questions about the data, and then set you a task to answer a fourth question. You can use one of the libraries or methods we have demonstrated, or come up with your own solution.

More details about the data we are using can be found here:

Audience background: Aimed at anyone interested in learning different kinds of JS visualisations. A very basic grasp of JavaScript will suffice, though participants with more experience very welcome. Exercises will probably be in pairs or small groups. A text editor and a browser is all you need.

Benefits of participating: An overview of how to use the libraries and tools we've covered, a chance to try them out, and ideally an idea of what factors to think about when choosing a type of visualisation and a visualisation tool.

Materials provided:Code

Process:We will demonstrate three visualisations, and then work through a fourth visualisation more slowly.
