Editing charts visually

Hi everyone! A while back I got into web dev as a hobby and started working on demand planning and forecasting for my job. I got kinda tired of manually adjusting forecasts in Excel and thought why not try to create something to make it easier. After messing around for a bit I created this (www.visualizzee.com/app/), is a chart editing tool that's been saving me a decent amount of time at my job. Basically I paste the data to the app, edit dragging the points and paste it back to Excel. Tbh I'm kinda happy with the result, being my first full web dev project, but I still have the itch to keep evolving it to do something more useful.

One idea I had was to add annotations to the charts, so people can add comments or notes. I'm also thinking about the possibility of using AI to automatically generate insights and explanations for the charts. But I'm not sure if these features would be useful for anything beyond forecasting. I've shared it with some mates of mine, and they've been using it for their jobs too, and they said notes would be useful. Does anyone have any ideas for more use cases for it? Or more just useful features I could add?

Seeking input from you on infographics

Hello, I am studying a Masters degree in visual communication, and I am doing a survey on the use of infographics on social media for one of my study modules.

I would be very grateful if anyone here wants to fill out my survey. It would probably take 5-10 minutes, a little more if you want to elaborate on answers in text fields, which is optional.

Link to the survey: https://forms.office.com/e/6zCj3pGbqD

Are YouTube Visualizations of War and Casualties appropriate? And if so, what are the ethical considerations for visualizations?

Any thoughts on this visualization?

https://youtu.be/-VrplT_PuWA

The visualization is based on data from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (Day157). It is difficult to talk about this topic without talking about the politics, but shouldn't we all see the humanity in the tragedy that is unfolding?

The visualization looks at casualties lined up on streets of New York, to show the amount of lives lost in this tragedy. The model could really be applied to any war, but it provides a way of showing people how many children, women and man have died and what this would mean in a local context, considering one's own communities.

Is it worth showing people? Is it appropriate? What are ethical concerns?

Or are we all so numb and jaded by a deluge of graphic imagery that hits us in the media and Online, that we stopped caring? Is Neil Postman right, when he says that "We are amusing ourselves to death", meaning that we engage with so much media every day, that all the information that we consume has lost its meaning?

Any feedback or comments are welcome.

I guess the question is, if our actions define our humanity, where does this leave us?

I wanna finish with two quotes, one from Albert Einstein and one from Yitzhak Rabin.

"Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism - how passionately I hate them!" (Albert Einstein, Mein Weltbild, pp.419, 1934)

(German Original: Heldentum auf Kommando, sinnlose Gewalt und die leidige Vaterländerei, wie glühend hasse ich sie, wie gemein und verächtlich erscheint mir der Krieg).

​

"Enough of blood and tears. Enough!" Yitzhak Rabin, at the signing of the Israel–Palestine Declaration in Washington, 13 September, 1993.

Visual Insights into Sephora's Skincare Product Prices

Hi, I am an Analytics student and made a data visualization to explore Sephora's skincare products and their prices. This is my 3rd? Tableau visualization. I'm open to any constructive feedback you may have.

https://preview.redd.it/da148x5lusnc1.png?width=1713&format=png&auto=webp&s=3e8efe088fb7d39729dfb756f265e0241272294e

Link: https://public.tableau.com/views/Sephora_skincare/SephoraSkincare?:language=en-US&:sid=&:display_count=n&:origin=viz_share_link

I also built a linear regression model to predict ratings for products, but the predictions are all around 4, which is the average ratings of the products. Since the model didn't perform well, I didn't include it in the visualization.

Edit: Add link and linear regression model

Time driven tree & node?

I'm looking for a visualization where a spider web of relationships between nodes can be mapped.

Each node is a date. Each branch is linear, in that there maybe many nodes, but they only have one origin.

Any pointers? Thanks

How can I improve this plot?

Hi, I need to show the accuracy of some models and I thought of plotting them against the experimental data. As you might see, they are very close and can't really tell the difference between one and another.

I tried to add some markers on the lines, but the result is even worse. Maybe I could make a focus box to zoom the most important section (around [0.4 V, 3.1 A]), but if any of you has better ideas, I'm accepting suggestions.

Thanks.
