Here I list a few of my hobbies. Note that this list is not extensive, and only contains the items I had time to list.
Some small examples I have been playing with can be seen in my D3 sandbox.
This was a very easy to understand and well thought out animation demonstrating the trade imbalance between imports and exports between 2001 and 2013 for the US. However, there are a few bugs in the animation, and in my efforts to learn D3, I downloaded their code and fixed them. The bugs I identified and fixed are the following:
I performed two versions of my fix, a minimal one that continues to use D3 version 3 and a bigger fix, with styling refactoring, and uses D3 version 4. These versions can be seen at the following links:
You will see in both fixed versions, the bars will stay on the same country, but move around with the ranking that country takes. It is a much better visual representation of the changes in the rankings of US trade.
For those curious about what is different from the original to the minimal fix, minimal-fix.patch is the patch file specifying all of the things I changed.
