It’s no secret that I’m a walking love letter to Budapest, but I just can’t stop being obsessed with it. Discover all my favorite spots in the hood and see how you can create round-shaped maps in Tableau & Mapbox.
Steven Shoemaker dared me to make a map-centered viz. It was like he’s reading into me. I haven’t created a map so far because every time I tried, I realized how much I suck at it. I put a solid 24 hours into this project, and this did not come easy.
Why get out of bed when you can read about people who got out of bed? This pretty much sums up my past weeks, so I decided to make a visualization from an idea that has spent a long time on my to-do list. I put together a database from all the books I’ve read since 2009 (the year I started using moly) and it turned out that the 278 titles almost add up to 100 000 pages.
The rapid loss of bees due to the extensive usage of pesticides could soon lead to extinction, that scientists say, would also mean the end of humanity. The explanation is easy, out of the 100 crop species that provide us with 90% of our food, 35% are pollinated by bees, birds and bats. The formula […]

We had this task at work to experiment with new dataviz softwares, that are not that popular as Tableau and Power BI. I choose to explore Flourish, a tool that is more suitable for data journalists than analysts with its easy to put together, but eye-candy ready-made charts. Even though it’s easy to use and […]
There are some things I can’t help doing and this is what I call the dataviz lifestyle. Even when I’m on vacation, my mind is all around numbers, maps, arts… anything that has the potential to visualize. And anyway, what would a data muggle do in the capital of alchemy if not some data sorcery? […]
Last week I’ve learned how to put together an awesome hexbin map and though it was a long and painful journey, the outcome totally worth it. It would be an understatement, that I can’t follow the math behind the calculations, but I could put the theory in action immediately. I’m still amazed by how cool […]
