rCharts Remake of NYT

June 28, 2013

For those wondering if I have forsaken finance, the answer is no.  I just don’t think there is much to do in here besides watch and wait.  So more d3 and R as I try to distract myself from doing something dumb in the markets.

This time I used rCharts and slidify to  recreate another NYT visualization similar to what I did in 512 Paths to the White House.  Now with any cumulative growth time series that we build in R we can apply the template and create this amazing visualization.  Below is a screenshot.  Click here to see the live version.

I’ll be living the good life over the next week, so no posts until after the 4th of July.
