kepler.gl
Uber has released Kepler.gl, an open source mapping software with an easy interface for uploading sorted data.

Kepler.gl is built on mapping platform Mapbox, whose tools we’ve covered before. Mapbox explains what they’ve built and what you can do with it, and Fast Company shows some of the best implementations of the technology.

We find this kind of visualization more useful than numbers and charts for learning geographic information. For example, you can see commute patterns in England or New York City neighborhood populations in 3d, which give you a better sense of geography than a list of numbers. You can find more maps and visualizations on the #keplergl Twitter tag.

Log ratios are often used when considering growth, as with investment returns. For example, if a stock doubles and then halves, you’re back where you started: log⁡(21) log⁡(12)=0\log(\tfrac{2}{1}) \log(\tfrac{1}{2}) = 0log(12​) log(21​)=0. On the other hand if a stock goes up by fifty percent then down by fifty percent, you’ve lost twenty-five percent of your investment: (1×0.5)−(1.5×0.5)=−0.25(1 \times 0.5) - (1.5 \times 0.5) = -0.25(1×0.5)−(1.5×0.5)=−0.25. This is why log scales are commonly used in stock price charts, such as this change line chart and index chart.
