Some visualisations of Bandung water quality data

Here I learn some more type visualizations to understand groundwater behavior based on groundwater quality data set. I have 142 data points of water quality data measured in 2015. The dataset can be downloaded from our OSF repository. Currently we are on our way in writing a paper out of the data set based on multivariate analysis. I use free apps to produce all plots. I will add the plots as I move along in the analysis.

Here’s the first visualization, a circle packing plot, modification of bubble plot.

  • Bubble size: TDS (total dissolved solids in ppm)
  • Bubble color: well type (dug well or drilled well)
  • Bubble label: Kelurahan
  • Bubble value: DO (dissolved oxygen in ppm)

Plot kedua berjenis alluvial plot:

  • Sumbu kiri: well type (dug vs drilled well)
  • Sumbu kanan: well depth (in m)
  • Tebal pita: TDS (in ppm)

Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behaviour.
