Ridgeline/Joy Plots in Dash (Automatic)


#1

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

Is this doable with Dash?

It should be! See cell 11 here: https://plot.ly/python/subplots/. The difference would be that you would need to turn off the grid lines and you’d need to overlap the yaxis domains.

Thanks, we’ll try that!
