About Me

Hey,
My name is Haggai Shachar, a big data enthusiastic and a data junky.
I love content personalization, predictive analytics, data mining, data visualization and data intensive problems in general. I love when an interesting use of data becomes a successful business. 
As an architect, I often find myself comparing and benchmarking big data technologies and services. Dozens of different data repositories, dozens of visualization tools, so many development frameworks, hundreds of data services…
Twitter is using this, Facebook is using that… so confusing…

This project aims to map the big data world and visualize it in an easy and intuitive way. Enjoy!

About the maps

All map in this site have been developed using a super powerful javascript based visualization library – D3js.
These maps are dynamically created based on the treemap visualization json repository of the entities and their metadata.

D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.
