Controlling Someone elses' Viz...

If you are like me, then you are lazy. Why design a visual when someone else has already done it?? Perhaps you just want to link to one. But perhaps, you also want to filter on one. This example makes use of simple javascript to tell a story. I've used a dashboard from The Data Studio designed by Andy Cotgreave. You will want to "view source" on this blog post to see the javascript that I used to control Andy's viz. I could have exposed the javascript somehow, but remember my comment about being lazy? Yeah... anyway, using html and javascript filters to control someone elses' viz makes me feel so... omnipotent! :)

This is my control

To the right is Andy's viz

No, seriously, that is cool.
