As I was getting a root canal last week, my dental X-Rays reminded me anew of an optical illusion that stumped us for a short time recently when we were developing our heatmapping engine.My X-Rays, before during and after a recent root canal.  The...

## Pseudo-Random vs. Random Numbers in R

November 25, 2011

Earlier, I found an interesting post from Bo Allen on pseudo-random vs random numbers, where the author uses a simple bitmap (heat map) to show that the rand function in PHP has a systematic pattern and compares these to truly random numbers obtained from random.org. The post’s results suggest that pseudo-randomness in

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Earlier today, I found an interesting post from Bo Allen on pseudo-random vs random numbers, where the author uses a simple bitmap (heat map) to show that the rand function in PHP has a systematic pattern and compares these to truly random numbers obtained from random.org. The post’s results suggest that pseudo-randomness in PHP is

## Visualizing Likert Items

I have become quite a big fan of graphics that combine the features of traditional figures (e.g. bar charts, histograms, etc.) with tables. That is, the combination of numerical results with a visual representation has been quite useful for exploring descriptive statistics. I have wrapped two of my favorites (build around ggplot2) and included them as part

Time Series as calendar heat maps + All of my running data since April 1, 2009 = Generated by the following code: #Sample Code based on example program at: source(file = "calendarHeat.R") run<- read.csv("log.csv", header = TRUE, sep=",") sum(run$Distance) date <- c() for (i in 1: dim(run)){ if(run$DistanceUnit== 'Kilometer'){ miles <- c(miles,run\$Distance * 0.62) }

## Mapping Hotspots with R: The GAM

October 25, 2011
By

I've been getting a lot of questions about the method used to map the hotspots in the seasonal drunk-driving risk maps.  It uses the GAM (Geographical Analysis Machine), a way of detecting spatial clusters from two data inputs: the data of interes...

## Simple Heatmap in R with Formula One Dataset

Now, that the 2011 F1 season is over I decided to quickly scrub the Formula 1 data of the F1.com website, such as the list of drivers, ordered by the approximate amount of salary driver is getting (top list driver is making the most, approx. 30MM) and position at the end of each race. There
