We have our first non-interactive visualizations produced in Proclipsing. The different drawing were made my changing properties, everything is very easy to adjust so these are some of the examples that we could show in our main visualization.
Next we need to create a legend, add interactivity by displaying more information on each planet with our "info box" and allow the user to make changes to what is encoded on the main visualization.
This first visualization shows how color is adjusted. Confirmed planets appear RED, being followed on GREEN, candidates GRAY. All planets are mapped according to their coordinates.
This visualization uses the same coordinate system but the colors are based on the color of the star the planet orbits. We will be refining the color encoding, this is just a test.
It is also easy what the axis represents. Here we chose to map how the planets gravity compares against its distance to the host star.
