Thinking to make a pack to render Choropleth map from data living Google sheets or Coda table. The embedded map will look similar to this one
Columns - 5 minutes from data to story
The formula may look like this
"<Google Spreadsheet ID>",
"<Aggregation: sum | avg | max | min | count | none>",
"<Type: choropleth | bubble | spike>"
Is anybody interested in this pack? I would like to know if anybody would be interested in using it.
Love to make a triable prototype if I heard a few yes.
Hi Shawn, and welcome to the Coda community!
I’m a little biased, but I think anything that makes data more visual is generally attractive to Coda users. And building even complex maps are wholly possible as I did here with MapBox.
Unlike many platforms, I’m often amazed at the progress I can make with relatively complicated integrations. As you look at these images, bear in mind that 100% of the data and content is managed in Coda tables.
The objective for this latest Coda project was to capture a bunch of location data for an analytics project at Stream It, organize it through collaboration with a partner, and then present it in an easy-to-navigate map. The tools for this include:
Coda (of course)
A lot of location da…
Hi Bill, thank your for your input, very positive encouragement.
You work for the real-time map is amazing. I saw that was posted back in March, what’s usage looking like so far? I don’t know how active Coda users are looking for extensions/packs, so curious about it.
That app and pack are private running in an enterprise, so the usage won’t apply here.
I have recently begin to build packs myself, so I don’t have a lot of data, but
Itsy() for example is running in about 100+ documents now. It’s free, so it’s also not a good gauge of success.
