I have a decent sized set of data - 500,000 records, each representing an event.
The fields are:
- who did the event
- what the event was (there will be say 5-10 type of events)
- where the event was (there will be 20 or so locations for an event)
- 'other things'
there are about 500-1000 events per day
My ultimate fantasy would be to have a video pegged at a certain time-scale - it's just short of 2 years of data, so make the video (for discussion) 2 minutes, each minute is a year, and so on. Each location would be shown as a circle of a certain size that would grow as events 'happened' at those locations. An even kinkier version of this fantasy is where each circle is a pie-chart and the pie-segments grow/shrink based on the type of event at each location.
Are there some ready-made tools, or open source libraries for python, or a web site that anyone would recommend?
Is this the kind of thing you hire someone at some large rate to do for you?
