The year 2020 was pretty poignant for obvious reasons. But even before the pandemic, the year started on a sad note with the death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant. He was a star NBA athlete who had played for 20 years with one and only one team — the Los Angeles Lakers.
Thinking that this project might be helpful for those new to web charting, I also logged the entire process and made a tutorial. Check it out!
First things first, I will give you a brief explanation about what diverging bar charts are and then we'll dive into the tutorial.
A diverging bar chart shows two or more measures that are plotted from a middle baseline, extending either to the right and left (horizontal range bars) or top and bottom (vertical range columns).
The key point of data visualization in such diverging charts is to facilitate the comparison of multiple categories by means of displaying them against a bifurcating midpoint.
In this tutorial, I use the diverging bar chart technique to showcase the wins and losses of the LA Lakers through the 20 years of Kobe Bryant’s career.
I picked one called AnyChart to create this diverging bar chart. This JS charting library appeared to support (particularly useful in this case) range charts out of the box and was also flexible enough to do what I wanted.
Also, it is quite easy to get started with AnyChart even for beginners because there are many ready-to-use examples and it has intensive documentation.
The entire process of creating literally any JS chart, including a diverging bar chart like this one, can be broken down into four fundamental steps:
