In this post, we will pivot from iterative tree visualization to using the very popular JavaScript thing called React in R. With some assistance from the helper R package reactR, we will learn to incorporate Reactcomponents in our output and make a Semiotic chart from R data. …

Before I start on the second post on the series, I wanted to make sure all my R readers knew that the charts in this post are created in R using htmltools. Also, each chart should have a link to reproducible code.

In our first attempt at improving hierarchical visualization, we combined d3.tree() with d3-sankey. Our sankeytree concoction allows us to convey size or flow from one…

d3 provides a helpful suite of layouts (cluster, tree, treemap, pack, and partition) for visualizing tree networks or hierarchies. In addition, we have the d3-sankey plugin for a Sankey diagram as another mechanism for presenting tree data. Approaching the layout decision as a mutually exclusive proposition means that we lose many of the benefits from alternative layouts. However, incorporating our favorite features from more than one layout…
