I've read Chris Demartini's blog post about jump plots and have downloaded his workbooks, but I'm stuck building mine. I'm trying to create a timeline showcasing on which days I travelled during each year (one hop = one trip). Both width and height should represent the number of days travelled. The line should be flat when I wasn't travelling. I've decided to create a node for each day as the nodes are equidistant in Chris's example. It's supposed to look like this:
I've noticed that my calculations for
Node Num Int = WINDOW_MIN(MIN([Node]),FIRST(),FIRST())
and
Node Num Sec = WINDOW_MIN(MIN([Node]),LAST(),LAST())
return the same value so my y values are zero and I can't create the Bezier curve.
They look like this in Chris's baseball jump plot:
Whereas I get the following result:
I've attached Chris's pitcher workbook and my travel workbook.
Any help would be appreciated!
Solved it using Yoshitaka's blog post: https://www.yarakawa.com/single-post/2018/02/22/How-To-Create-the-Jump-Plot
