We are always looking out for new and creative ways that the community is utilizing Dash and Plotly to make their web apps. If you are interested in learning to make these yourself, a great starting point is with our next Plotcon event.
This time we will be landing in Boston. This two-day event will offer advanced data visualization workshops for Dash, R, Shiny and Dash R from April 14–15. Chris Parmer, the creator of Dash and co-founder of Plotly, will be discussing his open source library for creating user interfaces with Python to build complex web apps just like these over a two-day master class.
Use code KDNUGGETS and save 20% on the dash workshops.
Dash: build beautiful web-based interfaces in Python
1. Great Balls of Fire: NASA Fireballs Open API
This Dash app was made using fireball data from 1988 to 2017 from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
2. Zika Outbreak Explorer
This is a Dash that utilizes Plotly’s crossfilter to look at Zika incidents over time.
3. Finding Bigfoot
Here’s an exploratory Dash app based on a Bigfoot Sightings from data.world. It demonstrates several plots (including a map), a grid layout built with Bootstrap, interactions with an input field, and caching.
4. Climate Change Life Events
Climate history and possible futures showing your important life events, inspired by Sophie Lewis.
5. Earthquake Explorer
A Plotly Dash application showing earthquake data from the US Geological Survey.
6. Street Quality Identification Device
The technology consists of taking pictures of the streets (with a camera installed on a vehicle) every second, and combine this information with an accelerometer data, measuring the ride quality of the streets. The first city to use this technology is the city of Syracuse and the result is below.
7. Visualizing MRI Data
Visualization tool for (f)MRI data-sets using Plotly Dash. Submitted to the TransIP VPS competition — and it won the 1st prize!
The Dash community certainly has fun with our platform. Carson Sievert, a freelance data scientist and maintainer of multiple R packages including Plotly, will also be conducting a master’s class on advanced data visualization in R. This will allow participants to rapidly pose queries about data with interactive web graphics made using the R package Plotly.

Until the next time, keep building those web apps with Dash for your chance to be featured. Hope to see you at the next Plotcon.
