My team and I have created an interactive data visualization that allows users to toggle between multiple representations of univariate continuous data. Visit https://datavis-demo.herokuapp.com/ wait a minute for the server to load, and then click Submit. Click on Histogram then any one of the variables on the right-hand side. Next, click on Density Plot and then any one of the variables on the right-hand side. We’ve found that multiple histograms and density plots in one window decreases graph comprehension, so we’d like to automatically create ridgeline/joy plots like these
@msdl One year ago I experimented the joyplot: https://plot.ly/~empet/14632.
As I can remember, initially I tried to plot each pdf estimation in a subplot, but I didn’t like its appearance.
Instead I translated each kde (kernel density estimation) vertically, such that to ensure an overlap with the previous and the next one.
