Interactive graphs are the new animated graphs

I just bought http://www.interactivegraphs.co.uk!

There’s nothing there just yet but the aim is, over this summer, to populate it as a sister site to http://www.animatedgraphs.co.uk, with tools that data-minded people can use within R, Stata, or even Excel, to turn data into online interactive stuff. This will all take the approach in R2leaflet: make a big chunk of text, containing your data, which can either be a standalone html file or a bit of JavaScript to include in a website. I’m pretty excited about it because it is going to provide a bridge from number-crunching to interactive graphics, and hopefully will introduce a lot of people to JavaScript along the way. I’ll keep you posted as it progresses…
