A graph showing doping allegations against the fastest climber’s at the Alpe d’Huez in the Tour de France.
I built this visualization for freeCodeCamp’s second Data Visualization Projects.
I continued to struggle with placing tooltips on this visualization project, as I have yet to find a clean and efficient way to do so without relying on external D3 tooltip or legend libraries. I’m definitely getting better at it, but there is still work to be done.
The brief for the Visualize Data with a Scatterplot Graph project was as follows:
- I can see a title element that has a corresponding id=“title”.
- I can see an x-axis that has a corresponding id=“x-axis”.
- I can see a y-axis that has a corresponding id=“y-axis”.
- I can see dots, that each have a class of dot, which represent the data being plotted.
- Each dot should have the properties data-xvalue and data-yvalue containing their corresponding x and y values.
- The data-xvalue and data-yvalue of each dot should be within the range of the actual data and in the correct data format. For data-xvalue, integers (full years) or Date objects are acceptable for test evaluation. For data-yvalue (minutes), use Date objects.
- The data-xvalue and its corresponding dot should align with the corresponding point/value on the x-axis.
- The data-yvalue and its corresponding dot should align with the corresponding point/value on the y-axis.
- I can see multiple tick labels on the y-axis with %M:%S time format.
- I can see multiple tick labels on the x-axis that show the year.
- I can see that the range of the x-axis labels are within the range of the actual x-axis data.
- I can see that the range of the y-axis labels are within the range of the actual y-axis data.
- I can see a legend containing descriptive text that has id=“legend”.
- I can mouse over an area and see a tooltip with a corresponding id=“tooltip” which displays more information about the area.
- My tooltip should have a data-year property that corresponds to the data-xvalue of the active area.
