The 2014 Major League Baseball playoffs are in full swing. Baseball, and sports in general, are a great for data visualizations and infographics since there is such an abundance of data easily available. Back in May I posted about a baseball visualization experiment to visualize the “line” on the starting pitchers for the 2014 Oakland […]

Each year for the past few years I’ve created a visualization that track the ups and downs of the top 25 college football teams as they’re ranked in the AP football poll each week using a leaderboard of slope graphs (2012, 2013). These have been static visualizations and I’ve wanted to create interactive versions since […]
Inspired by the compelling visuals from the Accurat team, I’m toying around with a new information design to visually represent pitching statistics for a baseball team’s starting pitcher rotation. For those not familiar with baseball, each Major League Baseball team has a “rotation” of 5 starting pitchers that start baseball games. The first pitcher in […]
I just discovered CartoDB this week and got some time to try it out a bit. It’s a nice online data visualization tool for mapping data. I also came across a great resource for data recently, Enigma.io, and in it, found a data set of volcanic eruptions from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Seemed like […]
I recently finished a new short animated infographic explainer video about the benefits of walking. People had suggested to me in the past that they’d like to see what goes on when creating one of these animated video explanations. So, while creating the video I captured most of the steps in the process and published […]
I’m a fan of Bubble charts. They’re similar to scatter plots. They’re good for showing the correlation of the variable on the x axis to the variable on the y axis. But they also offer the ability to represent additional variables by the size of the circles as well as colors of the circles. Bubble charts can […]
Last year, Cool Infographics published a great blog post from Kim Reese and Dino Citraro of the data viz firm Periscopic about infographics. Reese and Citraro pointed out that many of the visuals that are published on the web these days being called infographics, actually aren’t true infographics, but rather, are what they term ‘digital posters.’ […]
My main focus in visual thinking lately has been health-related, exploring several health risk correlations with scatter plots and bubble charts, creating a short 30 second public service announcement about heart disease risk factors and most recently a digital poster (an infographic in the parlance of most marketers today) showing the findings of a recent report […]
As a fan of both craft beer and visualization I thought it would be fun to visualize the array of different craft beers I’ve tried over the last year or so. I’ve been wanting to experiment with some of the different chart types available in Density Design’s RAW data visualization tool and thought a dendrogram […]
Visualizing Correlations with Connected & Animated Scatter & Bubble Plots Seems like I’ve gotten a bit obsessed with scatter plots and bubble plots lately over on Digital Splash Media. I’ve been looking at correlations of certain health risk factors like sugar consumption and physical activity levels and how those relate to obesity rates and heart […]
