Slopegraphs | rCharts –> maybe finance versions

Back in 2011, Charlie Park did two very thorough posts on Edward Tufte’s table graphics or slopegraphs.

These type graphics can provide very effective visualizations of finance and economic information.  For my first test though I will stick with cancer survivor data from this post Slopegraphs in R | James Keirstead.  We can use a dimplejs line chart from rCharts as our platform and add some javascript to do something similar.

If you know of any good finance or economics slopegraphs, please let me know and I might just try to recreate them.
