  1. Park SandDance and concentrate on simpler Custom Visuals for Power BI

    The team that built SandDance clearly have significant design and technical talent. But meanwhile the simpler included visuals and Custom Visuals for Power BI are very poor - inconsistent properties / features, basic visuals like KPI icon missing, etc. Improvements to these seem to have stalled for many months now. I suggest you park the SandDance visual as "good enough" for now, and turn the team's talents to improving and extending Power BI's visuals and Custom Visuals where they could have a significant impact on a wide audience.

    • Open Source SandDance?

      Would it be valuable to you if we made SandDance an open source project? Any thoughts you have on this would be helpful.

      Thanks, Roland.

            • When using latitude/longitude in a scatter view - is there anyway to overlay a map so boundaries are visible?

              I know that the scatter view when used with lat/long does appear to be a map - but boundaries - such as state lines are needed in most cases. Would it be possible to have a specialized scatter view that would show the boundaries?

                    • Ability to set fixed range on values for color palette

                      It would be nice if we could define a a color palette with fixed range or thresholds on numeric values for example:
                      val <= 100000 - red ; > 100000 green

                      • Facet-ing should allow me to zoom into one facet-box and navigate between full size boxes.

                        The same can currently be achieved by filtering the data, but this is much more work.

                            The Power BI version of SandDance shows only 10000 items. How do I increase this limit?

                            • Selection lost in PowerBI Version after changing "external" slicers

                              Amazing visual. Thank you so much! When I build a PowerBI report including the sanddance visual everything works fine until I change the selection of a slicer which filters the connected dataset. I've managed to retain the selection of my time column for x-axis by naming the column time, but the selection for color by, facet by always gets lost. Any ideas or workarounds?

                                • Time and date coded data is not properly handled

                                  Awesome tool. Thanks.
                                  I have 4 days of data with 24 hourly event data in each day. After importing the data set I am expecting to see four columns each with 24 data points. Instead I see three columns. One with 48 data points and the remaining two with 24. No matter what kind of analysis is done afterwards, this strange grouping of dates persists. How can I get SandDance to treat each days event data confined to that day during the analysis?

                                    We are discussing how best to provide value for users who want to use SandDance in new ways. How much interest is there in using SandDance as a JavaScript library with an API to either the plot engine part, the client app part, or both?

                                    • Export To/Save To/Print function

                                      Allow export of visualizations/charts to different formats including direct to PowerPoint, Visio, Excel, PowerBI, etc. A native print function would allow for cleaner print to plotters, etc without browser remnants.

                                          Hi

                                          I've tried to upload my own .csv dataset and catched the following error:
                                          glUniform.setValue error: name=projectionMatrix, value=[object Float32Array], uniformLoc=[object WebGLUniformLocation]
                                          Line 1130 in https://sanddance.azurewebsites.net/beachPartyEng/scripts/beachPartyEng.js

                                          Can you please offer a solution?
