An introduction to Nextplot for open source plotting with JSON

Nextplot is now an open source CLI tool for visualizing routes, clusters, and more from arbitrary JSON formats. Nextplot makes use of JSON paths (similar to`jq`) pointing to the relevant data so that plotting doesn’t mean re-architecting your data or writing a custom script.

Here are a few ways to use Nextplot:

- Visualize routes on a map (Do the routes look like what we expected?)

- Plot clusters, points, and more (Do these look like what we expected?)

- Identify input errors (Are there outliers/locations outside of the relevant regions?)

- Include the context of a point (JSON values) next to the point on the map (What’s the arrival time at this location?)

- Improve solver development (How are solution values improving over time?)
