They are getting popular, they are fun to look at and they enable seeing who or what has topped a certain ranking over time. You might have seen the ranking of countries by COVID19 cases in 2020, or the ranking of the richest people from Rockefeller to Jeff Bezos.

  • Amanda Iglesias Moreno wrote a Medium post in 2017 on making a Bar chart race plot with the top baby names in Barcelona. I learned quite a bit from that post, my intention in this article is to use what I have learned from her post and other resources to make code that can be used for any specific use case.
  • This Plotly tutorial offers all the code to make an animated Gapminder scatterplot. While the example is very rich, little to no code is explained. I am writing this post to help others understand what all the Plotly arguments mean. When I use “weird” Plotly arguments I will explain what they do in simple terms in the code comments.
