Learning Data Visualization using Processing

Learning Data Visualization using Processing by C.P. O’Neill.

From the post:

Learning data visualization techniques using the Processing programming language has always been a skill that has been on my list of things to learn really well and I finally got around to get started. I’ve used other technologies and methods before for data visualization, most notably R and RStudio, so when I got the opportunity to learn how to take that skill to the next level I jumped at it. Here is a visualization of all the meteor strikes that have been collected around the world. The bigger the circles, the larger the impact. I’m not going to go into a hugh analysis since I’m sure it’s been done many times before, but I am excited to get cracking on other data sets in the near future.

A nice reminder about Processing.

I have seen the usual visualization of arms exporters (U.S. is #1 by the way) but wonder about a visualization of the deaths attributable to world leaders during their terms in office (20th/21st century). Some of the counts are iffy and how do you allocate Russian deaths between Germany and the Allies (for not supporting Russia)? Still, it could be an interesting exercise.

I first saw this in a tweet by Stéphane Fréchette.
