I was inspired by Hans Rosling talking on TED in 2006. The dynamic bubble chart tells a good story.
His speech was recorded in 2006, so I am wondering what has changed after nearly 10 years later.
W|A provides same quality data and I should plot those data with BubbleChart, easily.
Unfornately, BubbleChart has a very strange diameter, so I use Graphics instead, finally.
GIF shows below with totally 57 countries for time series from 1964 to 2013.
Nice visualisation! great job!
Perhaps add PlotRangeClipping -> True to your plot so the circles are not plotted outside the box.
PlotRangeClipping -> True
Hi Sander, Good eyesight! Thank your for your tips!
Hi Wu,I'm very amazed by Hans Rosling splendid exposition using his amazing tool -bought by Google-..please give us the code for generating this beautiful living charts--very informative--..please show us the code..it will be highly generous..
Hi Wu,I want to tell you that Rosling has many other presentations since 2006..try youtube and you'll find a series of gorgeous talks by Rosling in different places in the world..this is the site where you find the software he uses in his talks..with updated data:
Google after buying this piece of ingenious code..called "Trendalyzer "..had integrate it ..with some modifications in their online docs.
Dear @Frederick Wu, very nice post! Could you share the code for this post? You can paste it in the post or attach the notebook.
I attached the code with data on top. Download all data from WA is time consuming.
Thank you @Frederick Wu ,I've also found a very similar demonstration in the wolfram demonstrations website,very sophisticated ,well designed and very helpful,thank you again.
