Interaction Design for Data Exploration Visualizations capable of launching detail views can add value to a data analyst’s user experience. Programming in this kind of interaction automates the creation of complementary charts and increases ease of exploration by linking varied views of the data in a logical way.
Introduction In Part 1, we built an application to geographically explore the 500 Cities Project dataset from the CDC. In this post, we will demonstrate other exploratory data analysis (EDA) techniques for exploring a new dataset. The analysis will be done with R packages data.table, ggplot2 and highcharter.
