Tell Stories with Data Animations

Webinar Recording

The webinar was recorded on May 29, 2020.

In addition to our new user webinar on Wednesday, this Friday will feature a demonstration of animating data.

From floating bubbles to bar chart races, animated data has become a popular and effective means to explore and present data. This webinar will show you how to use the powerful animation features in DataGraph. We will create an animation of COVID-19 data and export the animation as a movie file.

Download DataGraph:


Here are some examples of animations that you can create using DataGraph.

Moving Bars

Below is a moving bars example, also knowns as a ‘bar chart race’. The animation tracks the major sources of energy usage in the U.S. from 1949 to 2018. The graph features the moving bar graph along with a reveal that helps the viewer to see the full scope of the data.

In DataGraph, download this file from File/On-line Examples and search on ‘moving bars’.

Floating Points

This animation has moving points to show the relationship between deaths per day and new cases per day of COVID-19, as reported by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.

In DataGraph, download this file from File/On-line Examples and search on ‘COVID’.
