Breakdown: Input Form Usage for Comparison and Dynamic visuals
A few people have been curious about how I implemented the use of Input fields within my GoodViz-ESG submission so I figured it may prove useful if I gave a breakdown!
What I wanted to achieve was a more dynamic user experience, whereby the user could alter the content displayed within a subset of visualisation objects as opposed to making global selections with conventional filtering.
The main things I wanted to accomplish were:
- A comparison of user input values vs the top 100 companies for specific measures
- Dynamically changing visualisations
- Astrato's Input Form at the time only allowed for records to be inserted into a given table and these records needed to be entered as free text.
- There was also no variable support
