Flourish: Data Visualization and storytelling, No coding required

Flourish is a powerful, flexible and easy to use platform for data visualization  without coding.  It has some of the most popular visual widgets as parameterized “templates”  that use spreadsheets as data sources.

For example these are the parameters for the hierarchical template:

Captura de pantalla 2018-09-26 a la(s) 23.24.48

And this is the user interface used to map your data to the expected structure of the template:

Captura de pantalla 2018-09-26 a la(s) 23.24.30

As an example, I recreated my previous (and too simple) visualization of the  “Violent Deaths in Colombia Between 2000 and 2012”  dataset:

How Violence is Killing Us, revisited: A flourish experience

With a few clicks it was possible to explore the dataset using different kinds for visualizations like these:

Captura de pantalla 2018-09-26 a la(s) 23.17.47

Captura de pantalla 2018-09-26 a la(s) 23.17.57

Captura de pantalla 2018-09-26 a la(s) 23.18.17

If the current templates are not enough for your needs, it also provides a SDK that “…lets JavaScript developers produce templates that non-coders can use to edit and publish data-driven and interactive content…”.

Probably it could have some trouble with big datasets, but the ease of use is really impressive.
