Today, lets talk about indexing, a technique used to compare changes in values over time. What is indexing? Lets say you want to compare prices of Gold & Coffee over last few years. Gold price in 2011 (oct) is $1,655 per ounce. And now (sept 2012) it is $1,744. Like wise, Silver price in 2011 is $32.06 and in 2012 it is $33.61. How do we compare such diverse numbers? Enter indexing. First we need to calculate price of Gold and Silver in 2012 assuming their starting price is 100. This can be done with simple arithmetic. Now, we can easily compare the prices.

At their best, they facilitate a playful experience that is way more engaging than static infographics or videos. Here are several ideas and concepts of interaction design for data visualizations and interactive websites, using 11 examples from the web. 1. The Basics: Highlighting and Details on Demand Highlighting and details on demand are interactions that are useful for almost all data visualizations. Highlighting The Evolution of the Web is a great example of how highlighting can support the user in focusing on certain parts of the visualization.
