This follows up on the four dimensions in two dimensions post. I updated the graph adding some functionality, increasing the readability and improving the aesthetics. Moreover, the plot can now transition from a visualization with two categorical variables to one with four. The principle guiding the creation of the graph remains the same: to display as much information as possible into a two-dimensional graph without sacrificing interpretability and maintaining (hopefully) pleasing aesthetics. Because of the addition of the transition effect, I thought it was like adding a new dimension to the four which already existed. Below I describe the implementation of these additions. The graph is made in d3.js and the final plot can be admired here.
Web-interface for Delphi Method III
This post is the third in the series describing the web-interface I created to administer a questionnaire with the Delphi method. In this post I describe the code used to give feedback to the participants in round 2 of the Delphi study on functional magnetic resonance imaging on tinnitus. If you are interested in the previous posts, this post describes the interface for round 1 whereas this post describes (the first part of) the interface for round 2.

Four dimensions in two dimensions
This scatterplot is one of the best data visualisation I made. I like it because it concentrates a lot of information into a single visualisation. The scatterplot displays four dimensional data (i.e., four variables) using a two dimensional scatterplot. I made the first implementation in R, but because I wanted to add interactivity I switched to d3.js. Below I describe the choices I made to display the information and how I coded them in d3.js.

Streamgraph visualization of global warming
Streamgraphs are very pretty!
Streamgraphs are a very catchy way to represent stacked area graphs. Streamgraphs are most commonly used to represent time series data. I encountered streamgraphs for the first time during a coursera data visualization class and I immediately wanted to try to reproduce them.
