For those unfamiliar with SandDance, it was introduced nearly four years ago as a system for exploring and presenting data using “unit visualizations.” Instead of aggregating data and showing the resulting sums as bar charts, SandDance shows every single row of a dataset (for datasets up to ~500K rows).
It represents each of these rows as a mark that can be colored and organized into different areas on the screen.
Thus, bar charts are made of their constituent units, stacked, or sorted.
I hadn’t heard about SandDance until now, but I’m saving for later.
