Abstract data

This was a visualisation of a JSON dataset without any numbers or text. I chose to visualise the infection rate of HIV worldwide from 1990 to 2016.


After choosing my data, I began to experiment with my Javascript code and different ways to visualize it without the help of texts or images. Starting with simple charts and common visuals and working my way up to more elaborate designs.

First level

If the User moves the mouse on the screen from left to right, they see all the HIV infections worldwide.


Left is 1990, right is 2016.

Second level

If the User clicks on one of the countries he comes to the second level which shows all of the infections from 1990 to 2016 in this specific country individually.

Third level

By clicking again the User can see the death rates of that country shown in blue. By clicking yet again the User will come back to the beginning.
