These visualisations were built using R and Shiny, here's a basic overview of what Shiny is.
This project was started when Dr. Jenn Strawbridge approached University of Oxford's IT Research Support Team and requested support in creating a queryable database for the Paul and Patristics project. Shiny was recommended as it allowed us to easily build both an interactive table that met Dr. Strawbridge's initial needs but also allowed us to add a range of visualisations of the data.
The visualisation makes use of the following charts:
- Interactive, queryable tables.
- Barcharts - useful for comparison, ranking or displaying the magnitude of data.
- Bubble matrix plot
To replicate this interactive visualisation for yourself, refer to the IDN Shiny app template or else fork the actual code for the shiny app here. You an also contact the IDN on firstname.lastname@example.org
