Global Data Viz in translation

IHME has recently worked with the World Bank to release a series of regional reports on relevant findings from the Global Burden of Disease 2010 Study. It is cool to see this work getting disseminated, and now even in non-English editions. This raises questions for data visualization translations, like should 1990 and 2010 be in reversed positions when accompanying right-to-left text?

D3js speed

I sometimes wish transitions in a data viz went more smoothly. Maybe this frame-per-second calculator can help with optimization:

IHME data in Economist viz

I had two colleagues call my attention to a cool use of GBD 2010 estimates recently: the Economist observed World Hepatitis Day by calling attention to the deaths due to hepatitis as compared to the deaths due to HIV. It is very nice to see these numbers getting out into the world.

But there are a lot of metrics to use for this comparison, and a lot of ways to show them besides a four-colored map. Find a country of interest from their map, and then make a detailed comparison on the GBD-Compare tool: China, North Africa/Middle East, United States.

Animations and transitions in D3js

Seeing data transition can be amazing, can be distracting. Making it work can be confusing. Here are some hints: http://www.jeromecukier.net/blog/2012/07/16/animations-and-transitions/

Javascript style?

Javascript style guidelines seem less definitive than PEP-8. Is this a good reference: http://google-styleguide.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/javascriptguide.xml#JavaScript_Style_Rules?
