This is my research lab project task that is part of my masters degree in Software Systems Engineering at RWTH Aachen University.

While brainstorming the idea, I along with my lab partner Sana Kanji did some research about the feedback of the Fusion users in AutoDesk Fusion360 forums[1] and created a Wishlist for the fusion360 users that they really need it. …

Thanks to Analytics Vidhya that published my previous article “Data Visualization with React & ECharts” in which I have covered the importance of data visualization and how we visualize the data in React.js using ECharts. Now this time we do the same data visualization plots but with other JavaScript library that is Chart.js. This article helps you to plot & understand some basic visualization of the dummy data with React and Chart.js.

React is an open-source JavaScript library, maintained by Facebook for building user interfaces or UI components.

Chart.js is a free open-source JavaScript library for data visualization, which supports…


With the innovation of technologies in the field of Data Engineering, the term Data visualization has significant importance as it is an one of the essential components of Industry 4.0 and 5.0.

Data visualization is about representing data or information in a graph, chart, or other visual format which helps to communicate relationships of complex data with images. The main goals are:

  • quick understanding of the information
  • identify emerging trends/clusters and act quickly based on what we see
  • identify relationships and patterns within digital assets
  • can share our story (results) with others
  • analysis at various levels of detail

Bimmah Sinkhole is the world’s largest sinkhole, was created by a falling star. But on the other hand, Geologists have confirmed that it happened…


Mathematics have played main role in solving many of the problems. From space to bottom of the earth no field has become successful without the use of brilliant concepts presented by mathematics. It has actually made logical reasoning very easy.

As the future is always based on some uncertainty. You can never be 100% sure about what would happen next. In this case we can only predict. Predicting is also one of the gift of mathematics. Probability and statistics have taken over the world today. Among many major problems, one problem is about birthday paradox. …


You are passing by a road and you see a bunch of people gathered at a point. What is the first question that pops up in your mind? “Why is there so much crowd?” Yeah?

You are meeting a person for the first time. You both are sitting opposite to one another at a coffee shop table. The person is talking to you, while continuously maintaining eye contact. How do you feel? Of course, good. Because you think the person is paying you attention.

Consider you get a phone call. The speaker says he is from a telephone company and…


Usually people believe “the numerical calculations are exact, but graphs are rough” even though it’s completely wrong. Even I was not right about it before learning data analytics.

If you are new in the data science or its sub fields, believe me this is the first step towards the understanding of the importance of Data Visualization along with the statistics result.

Anscombe’s Quartet is the modal example to demonstrate the importance of data visualization which was developed by the statistician Francis Anscombe in 1973 to signify both the importance of plotting data before analyzing it with statistical properties. It comprises…


Just because they are added in your friend list on Facebook, doesn’t mean they qualify to be called your friends. Why? Maybe because you don’t really hang out together or maybe because they didn’t invite you to their wedding. Well! That’s not quite true as the answer is; your brain has limited space for sustaining quality relationships.


Data is the new oil. It’s valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used. It has to be changed into gas, plastic, chemicals, etc. to create a valuable entity that drives profitable activity; so must data be broken down, analyzed for it to have value. - Clive Humby

Over the centuries, Oil has been a valuable resource to the world’s economy but the passage of time has taken over this concept. With the banks, lawmakers, marketers, social media users, advertisers, sociologists, doctors, space scientists etc. …
