3D Checkout Duration Visualisation
MAT 259, 2018
Wilson Mui

The idea behind this project was to create a visualization that can show the checkout time for the large Dewey categories. Multiple categories can be displayed alongside each other to compare. Data from all book and dvd checkouts between January 2018 - December 2018 is used. The code can be easily modified for longer queries. Each category has its own color. Books are shown as spheres and DVDs as cubes. The speed of the shapes is in relation to how quickly the book is returned. Changes in checkout duration of specified categories over time can be seen. Differences in checkout volume between categories is noticeable as well. Entering 000, 100, ..., 900 will load and display all the books and DVDs checked out in the 12 month period belonging to the Dewey class. Multiple categories can be inputted for comparison.

SELECT DATE(cout) AS 'cout', DATE(cin) AS 'cin', itemtype, deweyClass As 'class', title FROM spl_2016.inraw WHERE YEAR(cout) = 2018 AND MONTH(cout) between 1 and 12 AND (itemType = "acbk" or itemType = "acdvd") AND deweyClass != '' ORDER BY date(cout) DESC
