We are looking at providing information that will be easy to understand with graphs. Small graphs, that are responsive and that look very good when enlarged.
We will need to use a graph, bar chart and a pie graph. Ideally, all growing as they are being built. Quickly, but shown growing with data points.
The important thing is that on the Y and X axis of the graph, we will need the option to select multiple things. Then define a legend color. On the X axis, we can only define one selection from a dropdown. Vice versa, if someone wants to select one Y axis and have multiple X axis, they can do that. It is all based on which individual axis is selected first. Both axis will have drop downs to start. They will default to something that will be grayed out in the drop down. When they click to change the X or Y axis from a drop down, the other axis will turn into a multiple selection area. Where you can graph the one axis to multiple variables.
It will be important to be able to add a second graph, on top of the existing one. Basically, you allow for the creation of additional data mapping. This will work by saying, add comparison, both axis will be the same as the previous axis and by default, one year prior. They can change if they want.
This is very similar to the way that Google Analytics does their graph data selection. The graphs need to be nice, the selection of data needs to be nice. It has to have a default. Once you identify the graphs that you are going to use, I can design the legend selections and X, Y selections. As well as the time selection for comparison and additional comparisons.
Bar charts will be similar. You can select multiple items to compare to.
Pie chart will be a selection of variables to select.
When you are building this, you will create 9 different data sets.
1) Time of day
2) Days of the month
5) Random data points that tie to time of the day, which would tie into the day, which would tie into the month, which would tie into the year. These would be
2 clicks at 4:00am, Feb 5 2016. This would give you all the info above for reports on that day.
6) Special Person. This is just a variable that in reality will be a count of selections made for users.
7) Random ages from 10-60. This is going to be used in the graphs to define age ranges as part of the selection process when defining one of the axis.
8) Gender (Male, Female)
9) Income levels. So, 4 people at 0-$1000, 9people at $1000-$5000. You can make up the values. It is just to have data to look at the functionality of the graphs
I will need to see examples of other work that you have done with graphs. This is a VERY important project. I can disclose more information after we get started under an NDA, but this is as much as I can offer at this point. Examples of current graphs are attached.
The attached document is more to show the spacing of where you have to work. I don't like the graph that is there. It looks too basic and cheap. We need something that looks professional and I am looking someone who wants to be involved in taking this to another level.
This is collection of drug addiction recovery, alcohol addiction recovery and many other things that will give us information on how to help people going through this. I have all of the data, I just need to find someone that would be passionate and make it look amazing. The important thing is for me to be able to easily replace the data sets with the real data. It would tell you the time of the day that people tend to have problems. Just to improve the focus of recovery programs.
