Unlocking our Data

with Visualization

Source Data for Visualization

Same Data           Served Data           Shared Data

Approach #1: Same Data

Approach #2: Served Data

RStudio is an interface to using R.

Shiny transforms R code into web applications 

How this works...

Data

Application Code

Place to deploy apps

What you will need...

Database 

Data warehouse

Excel, json, csv, etc.

 

User interface code

Server code

 

Shinyapps.io 

Open source server

Professional server

RStudio Connect

 

Approach #3: Shared Data

Approach #3: Shared Data

  • Linked interactive visualizations
  • Filtering and personalization capability
