Engineering Open Data Visualizations over the Web
Data Visualization has been traditionally one of the main pillars for understanding the information coming from Business Intelligence/Analytics based systems. While building visualizations has never been an easy task, moving data visualization for open data over the Web adds extra complexity. The variety of data sources, devices and users, together with the multidimensional nature of data and the continuous evolution of user requirements makes Data Visualization on the Web for open data more complicated as well as challenging. This paper briefly introduces a DSL for engineering open data visualizations over the Web whose aim is twofold. On the one hand, overcoming technological dependencies such as data source, data set, rendering technologies and so on. On the other hand, bringing the possibility of building useful graphics to users with domain expertise but non-technical skills.
