Category Archives: Data & Visulaization

beyond the whiteboard

I’ve signed up at beyond the whiteboard a CrossFit workout log website today. The main draw for me to this site is the graphing capabilities that they seem to have. I’ve only entered one workout so far, but I’m going to try to go back as far as possible for the data that I have written down and I’ll see how well the visualization of my fittening goes.

The site is in beta, which was evident when I tried to sign up. I got a Rails application error about the app not starting up the first time I tried to register. I fixed that by doing it over again and everything worked fine the second time.

One of the systems they seem to be using is Fusion Charts to produce their graphs. As I pick up more and more on data visualization, I’m very interested to learn of these new tools.
