Conditioning plot

Screenshot for 'Conditioning plot'
A visualisation to display a variable distribution conditional on the distribution of at least a second variable. In the example, the number of breaks is displayed conditional on the type of wool and the level of tension.

Correlation matrix plot

Interactive Scatterplot

Screenshot for 'Interactive Scatterplot'
A scatterplot looking at the number of years we can expect to live compared with the number of years we can expect to live in good health across the world. In most of the world, life expectancy is longer than it was 20 years ago, but often a smaller percentage of those years will be healthy ones.
