I Need a Tagline

Worth a Look

One of the things I’m wrapping my head around at Urbanspoon is how to analyze, process, and visualize large data sets. Here are some tools that I want to check out:

  • Cube – will let us put time-series data in MongoDB for later analysis.
  • Cubism.js – Javascript visualization library. Among other sources, it can consume data from Cube.
  • D3 – Looks like an excellent Javascript library for building visualizations. Cubism.js is built on D3.
  • ColorBrewer – for picking good color schemes for visualizations.

We’re living in a data renaissance and I love it.
