Data Visualization

The purpose of this group is to facilitate the development of data visualizations using Drupal as the delivery platform. Drupal is particularly well-suited to data visualization goals given the availability of tools like Views, Data API, Sheetnode and Feeds module.

Combined with powerful Javascript libraries and projects like D3.js, Highcharts.js, Processing.js, Dygraphs, etc., Drupal can be used to tell complex and compelling stories with data.

While many projects exist with the intent of providing charting and graphing modules to Drupal, nothing is very well-supported or standard across the platform. This group intends to change that.

Create a get all data REST resource

Hey guys! I have a problem. I want to create a get all data REST resource in Drupal 8. I need a request that will display all the data from all the requests. This request will be executed when the mobile application starts . I found this module:
https://github.com/enzolutions/entity_rest_extra, but I don't know the methods to display all the views with content types that I created. Any solution?

Data Visualization at DrupalCon LA: D3.js BOF

I wrote up the notes from the D3.js BOF. I think that was the only non-mapping DataViz session. They are available via google doc here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dApzT9HfUZ0VC4RUdvzbwVeD5hcXfPnRmCvy... or PDF (attached)

State of the Modules: Use and Update Status

Having yet to get a module that I am REALLY satisfied with, I thought I would put up some stats about the many visualization modules out there, and see if we could get some dialog going. I am listing the last dev update here, since that reflects actual active code changes, as opposed to the release date. This list differs from the one in the "Similar Module Review" groups, since I believe it aims to clean up, not explore capabilities (https://groups.drupal.org/node/93064).

Drupal Edge Suite for HTML5 Data Viz

Check out this great module, which allows a user to upload an Adobe Edge HTML5 composition to D7.

http://drupal.org/project/edge_suite

In addition to excellent Views integration, there is a data injection feature that works with tokens to pass in JSON formatted data to the comp from Drupal.

I have not yet used Edge for a data viz project, but since it's jQuery/JavaScript based, you can use libraries like D3. I've used Raphael and Greensock pretty easily inside an Edge comp. Edge is free, for now, from Adobe.

Field analytics

Check out http://drupal.org/project/field_analytics for another way of analyzing on data for not only Drupal nodes, but any fieldable entity type.

As a class-based field reporting API, Field analytics makes it easy to add additional reports per field type.

There is a submodule for Highcharts included (tying with the new 7.x-2.x Highcharts API), which adds charts visualization to the default tabular reports. This submodule is a good example of how to extend Field analytics with additional reporting on field usage and data.

Is "Visualization" the best name for this group?

As per the ongoing discussion in our issue, silverwing thought the group name "Data Visualization" might be more descriptive than simply "Visualization".

Other possibilities -- DataViz, Viz, InfoViz... Others?

What's everyone think? Is "Visualization" the best name for this group?

Non-node data visualization in Drupal?

So, Drupal's great for visualizing nodes — you create a View, grok your data and boom, you're done. But what if you have a massive data source that would create a thousand — ten thousand, a hundred thousand, a million! — nodes if you imported it as-is?

What do we want from this group?

Greetings to all the new members! Thanks for joining -- for this group to get off the ground, we need to show there's an actual community of Drupal users who use it as a platform for visualization of some form or another. By joining -- and please, invite others you think might be interested! -- you help us toward that goal.

Speaking of goals, I think now might be a good time to start discussing why you've joined, and what you'd like this group to achieve. What do you want from it? Should this group necessarily have goals -- and if so, what should those be?

Using Github for hosting data sets?

If you do any viz work with d3.js, you're probably familiar with the work of Mike Bostock, who is the primary developer of d3 and produces stuff for the New York Times.

The realization I had while looking through a bunch of his examples is that he effectively solves the problem faced by most newsrooms in having to deal with an aging and often-incompatible stack: he simply hosts everything at Github, via a gh-pages branch.
