    This map shows the percentage of people who answered "Walser" to the question "In quale lingua o dialetto le viene meglio parlare?" [Which language or dialect do you speak in a better way?] in a sociolinguistic survey carried out in the Aosta Valley and some Walser municipalities in Piedmont in 2001.

    I elaborated the data using QGIS and then I edited the map with paint.net

    I think it's interesting to see that China, and Asia in general, have grown significantly in the last almost-30 years. You can also clearly see the catching up that has been going on in Eastern Europe after the fall of the iron curtain. And I guess it's comforting to see that almost everyone in the world saw some, albeit not very high, average increase year-over-year in their standard of living.

    Data wrangling done in Python. Data visualisation done in D3.js. Data Source: SerentaFlowers

    Caveats:

    • What are all those light greens and dark greens? Some bouquets feature a heavy amount of greenery and foliage, with actual petals being relatively sparse. In these cases, the ColorThief module returned the dominant colour as "green". (There's probably a more machine-learning-y way to do this, for example, by dynamically cropping each photo to the petals of the flower - and if you know how to do this, PM me.)

    • What about bouquets with more than one colour of flower? The ColorTheif dominant colour algorithm will select which ever colour is most dominant. In the case where there is an exactly equal 50/50 amount of, say, purple and yellow flowers in a bouquet, the algorithm will essentially flip a coin to work out which colour (yellow or purple) was deemed most dominant.

    Data source: My friends and I have been picking up litter and tracked every single piece that we picked up.

    Tools: Used the iOS app Rubbish to gather data, Tableau to filter and visualize by days that we cleaned, then stitched together with after effects.

    Background:You might have seen my friend's bag of 8,000 cigarettes on r/pics last week, or the first post I made here. This is a 6 month update for trashtag. Check out our project here.

    Days with the count highlighted in red saw totals more than 2 standard deviations above average (most notably the two weekends around Halloween)

    We took this data and installed a cigarette butt receptacle in the area with the highest concentration of butts, just south of Green Street. This one unit diverted over 1,000 butts in 6 weeks.

    Edit: Total # cigarettes picked up & visualized: 29,728

    Nice visualisation and we'll done for picking up litter, I really appreciate it and I'm sure many others do too.

    Smokers, for some reason, feel it is OK to just throw their cigarette litter on the floor, out the car window, into the river, sea, lake, bush, whatever and wherever they want. It's selfish and disgusting.

    They don't care about their own health (would not smoke if they did), so I suppose we can't expect them to care about anyone else's...

    By the way, do you have any statistics relating to the visualisation? Maybe % of litter types?

    It's the same in my city, and a big part of the problem is that there are no ashtrays or even garbage cans available because they tried to ban smoking on the sidewalk but dont enforce it because it doesnt work. I'm a smoker. I'm going to smoke on the sidewalk because I dont actually get a break at work, and I run a store alone. Usually, I put my cigarette out and dump the butt in the garbage when I get inside, but having a designated place for butts would help. People are still going to be shit, but it would reduce the amount of litter.

    Cigarette filters while an eyesore aren't as bad as people think they are. They're comprised of 95% cellulose acetate which is just plant fiber washed clear in a gelatinous acid. Wikipedia says CA readily decomposes in 4 or 5 months.

    I feel for you though on the eyesore part of it, I'm always out here at work with my $2 pick up stick from harbor freight. Also venues should have to provide outdoor ashtrays. People aren't going to stop smoking, and will usually put butts where they belong if there's a proper receptacle.

    Here's a version without the yellow background.

    Data wrangling done in Python. Data visualisation done in D3.js.

    Data Source: SerentaFlowers.com

    Essentially, this is a kind of 100% stacked bar graph. The thickness of the coloured bars is proportional to the amount of orders that month of that particular colour bouquet (as there will be more bars generated with that colour).

    When plotted out over time, you see particular patterns forming. For example:

    • orange bouquets become popular during the autumn months, but not so much in summer or spring.

    • red bouquets peak in February (for Valentines) and in Christmas (because it's cold - and perhaps red is seen as a warming colour.)

    • yellow bouquets are popular all year round, except for December (but experience a peak in January, perhaps because yellow flowers represent newness and fresh starts)

    Mega thanks to Lokesh's ColorThief Python package: I used this to work out the dominant colour of each bouquet photo.

    Caveats:

    • What are all those light greens and dark greens? Some bouquets feature a heavy amount of greenery and foliage, with actual petals being relatively sparse. In these cases, the ColorThief module returned the dominant colour as "green". (There's probably a more machine-learning-y way to do this, for example, by dynamically cropping each photo to the petals of the flower - and if you know how to do this, PM me.)

    • What about bouquets with more than one colour of flower? The ColorTheif dominant colour algorithm will select which ever colour is most dominant. In the case where there is an exactly equal 50/50 amount of, say, purple and yellow flowers in a bouquet, the algorithm will essentially flip a coin to work out which colour (yellow or purple) was deemed most dominant.

    This is a lot of fun to look at. I definitely get that being super pedantic is counterproductive here, but as a fun fact for non-natives, Minnesota's MLS and NHL franchises are actually both in St. Paul! You could make that listing "The Twin Cities" for a more accurate bucket ala "Bay Area".

    Birmingham will continue to be on that "not included" list as I doubt the Birmingham metro will grow to support a major league sports team.

    I'd say Huntsville-Madison (maybe also Decatur) has a better chance, as there's actually new investment and population growth in Limestone and Madison counties.

    B'ham had a chance, but all these communities fighting each other killed it.

    for the "not included" cities it would be more accurate to break it down by metropolitan area population versus just city population.

    This is a lot of fun to look at. I definitely get that being super pedantic is counterproductive here, but as a fun fact for non-natives, Minnesota's MLS and NHL franchises are actually both in St. Paul! You could make that listing "The Twin Cities" for a more accurate bucket ala "Bay Area".

    Birmingham will continue to be on that "not included" list as I doubt the Birmingham metro will grow to support a major league sports team.

    I'd say Huntsville-Madison (maybe also Decatur) has a better chance, as there's actually new investment and population growth in Limestone and Madison counties.

    B'ham had a chance, but all these communities fighting each other killed it.

    Generally speaking, showing the data is better than showing some analysis of the data. The one on the right may be helpful for some specific purpose, but should only be included in addition to the left.

    I'm a fan of doing a contour plot for the dense regions, with scatter points for outliers. For this you'd want a much smaller bin size for the contours, so you can see the structure of the dense regions.

    Visualization was created with R. The source code is listed below. I was inspired by this DataIsBeautifulPost, which asked which is better, a 2d scatterplot or a 2D contour plot. Personally, I prefer the scatterplot, but with one key change: make the points partially transparent, which allows the viewer to see regions of high and low density much more clearly.

    Source Code


    library(ggplot2)library(tibble)library(gridExtra)NumDataPoints <- 1000set.seed(98321)dat <- tibble(   x = rlnorm(NumDataPoints, meanlog = 4, sdlog = 0.75)  ,y = sapply(x, function(x) rnorm(n = 1, mean = x, sd = x))  ,state = cut(log(x), breaks = 4, labels = c("red", "green", "purple", "black"), ordered_result = FALSE))hist(dat$x)p1 <- ggplot(dat, aes(x, y)) +  geom_point(alpha = 0.10, pch = 16, size = 5) +  scale_color_manual(values = "black") +  ggtitle("Scatter Plot with Partial Transparency") +  theme(    text = element_text(size = 20)  )p2 <- ggplot(dat, aes(x, y)) +  geom_density2d(size = 2) +  ggtitle("Same Data as Contour Plot with 2D bins") +  theme(    text = element_text(size = 20)  )grid.arrange(p1, p2, layout_matrix = matrix(1:2, nrow = 1, ncol = 2))

    EDIT 1: Contour is misspelled in the title of the plot on the right. The spelling error has been fixed by updating the source code.

These are the top three from this awesome visualization by /u/TheNerdistRedditor I chose to do only the top three since I'm still working on the platform and there are some minor bugs that cause the data to get wonky if there are inconsistent dates.

    I find it interesting how much more dramatically MSFT was affected by the dot com boom, and we can see AMZN's massive growth in recent years despite it hardly budging during the run up to 2008. On the source platform this chart is interactive which makes it very fun to play with :)
