Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Cameron’s Corner. This week, I wanted to expand upon using Bokeh to visualize the weather by revisiting the Edward Tufte NYC Weather in 2003 visualization I recreated in Matplotlib. Except, this time, I want to see if Bokeh is up to the challenge.
All of the data & set up will be identical to the previous post from March, so we can gloss over those details. If you’re up to date, feel free to skip down to the Recreating Tufte in Bokeh section.

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to Cameron’s Corner. This week, I want to dive into a topic of particular and personal interest to me: the origins of data visualization. In fact, I’m so passionate about it, I’ll be hosting a seminar on March 17th, “Spot the Misleading Data Visualization!”
Edward Tufte is one of the pioneers of modern-day data visualization. In his work, he is brilliantly able to distill core concepts that can then be applied to nearly any form of visual communication. If you aren’t familiar with his work and are interested in the topic of data visualization in general, I highly recommend Tufte’s book, “The Visual Display of Quantitative Information”.
