visualizing system integrations using d3.js (straight from Excel)

I’ve written about d3.js force diagrams, mapping tweet sentiments, , d3.js trees, Sankey diagrams and various other stuff on the ramblings site all of which show how to create d3.js diagrams directly from simple Excel data. This is settling down now to a standard parametrized capability, so today I’ll show how to apply this to visualize dataflows between items – using an example of system integration visualization. Here’ s the result, with the interactive version here (better with Chrome)

The input data is a straightforward Excel table like this, with the marker styles, colors, link styles and tooltip information all data driven.

To find out how to do this, and download the example workbook, visit the ramblings site.

I am a Google Developer Expert and decided to investigate Google Apps Script in my spare time. The more I investigated the more content I created so this site is extremely rich. Now, in 2019, a lot of things have disappeared or don’t work anymore due to Google having retired some stuff. I am however leaving things as is and where I came across some deprecated stuff, I have indicated it. I decided to write a book about it and to also create videos to teach developers who want to learn Google Apps Script. If you find the material contained in this site useful, you can support me by buying my books and or videos.
