If I weren’t crazy, I’d be insane! (Joker)

I present today a dynamical D3.js plot where I combine three things:

- The Batman curve
- A text mining analysis to obtain most common words from the Batman’s page at Wikipedia
- A line plot using morris.js library of
`rCharts`

package where point labels are the words obtained in the previous step

This is my particular homage to one of the most amazing superheros ever, together with Daredevil. Since I am not allowed to post JavaScript nor embed objects in my WordPress.com blog, I can only show you an screenshot of the graph:

If you want to *play* with the graph, you can download it here. This is not the first time I write about Batman (see this), and maybe will not be the last one.

The code:

require(ggplot2) require(dplyr) require(rCharts) library(rvest) library(tm) f1u <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) > 3 & abs(x) <= 7), 3*sqrt(1-(x/7)^2), 0)} f1d <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) >= 4 & abs(x) <= 7), -3*sqrt(1-(x/7)^2), 0)} f2u <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) > 0.50 & abs(x) < 0.75), 3*abs(x)+0.75, 0)} f2d <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) > -4 & abs(x) < 4), abs(x/2)-(3*sqrt(33)-7)*x^2/112-3 + sqrt(1-(abs(abs(x)-2)-1)^2), 0)} f3u <- function(x) {ifelse ((x > -0.5 & x < 0.5), 2.25, 0)} f4u <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) > 1 & abs(x) <= 3), 6 * sqrt(10)/7 + (1.5 - 0.5 * abs(x)) * sqrt(abs(abs(x)-1)/(abs(x)-1)) - 6 * sqrt(10) * sqrt(4-(abs(x)-1)^2)/14, 0)} f5u <- function(x) {ifelse ((abs(x) >= 0.75 & abs(x) <= 1), 9-8*abs(x), 0)} fu <- function (x) f1u(x)+f2u(x)+f3u(x)+f4u(x)+f5u(x) fd <- function (x) f1d(x)+f2d(x) batman <- function(r,x) {ifelse(r%%2==0, fu(x), fd(x))} data.frame(x=seq(from=-7, to=7, by=0.125)) %>% mutate(y=batman(row_number(), x)) -> df html("https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman") %>% html_nodes("#bodyContent") %>% html_text() %>% VectorSource() %>% Corpus() %>% tm_map(tolower) %>% tm_map(removePunctuation) %>% tm_map(removeNumbers) %>% tm_map(stripWhitespace) %>% tm_map(removeWords, c(stopwords(kind = "en"), "batman", "batmans")) %>% DocumentTermMatrix() %>% as.matrix() %>% colSums() %>% sort(decreasing=TRUE) %>% head(n=nrow(df)) %>% attr("names") -> df$word m1=mPlot(x = "x", y = "y", data = df, type = "Line") m1$set(pointSize = 5, lineColors = c('black', 'black'), width = 900, height = 500, hoverCallback = "#! function(index, options, content) { var row = options.data[index] return '' + row.word + ''} !#", lineWidth = 2, grid=FALSE, axes=FALSE) m1 m1$save('Batman.html', standalone = TRUE)
