Two years ago Bestiario launched Impure -a visual programming language aimed to gather, process and visualize information – .  Around a year after the launch of Impure we began to think about how to take our platform to the new level, and the idea for Quadrigram was born: a data visualization solution oriented to businesses, analysts and journalists who need to add a layer of visual intelligence to their information. Development and design ensued, and earlier this year we soft-launched Quadrigram Beta as Bestiario’s first enterprise solution. Half a year later, we are now ready for our second big Quadrigram release.

Quadrigram is the first visual programming language developed specifically for creating and sharing interactive, in-browser data visualizations. We have built a library of hundreds of modules geared towards this purpose. These range from resources that gather data (either importing locally or working with APIs), to intermediate operators and controls (allowing for further filtering of data), to the visualization modules themselves (basic pie charts to 3D image networks).

Specifically, Quadrigram is also unique, in that it can process text, tapping into R to perform semantic and syntactic analysis or generate prediction models. Our advanced visualizers also allow users to create their own approaches to data visualization, by working with raw points, shapes, lines and other primitives, so that their not just limited to the conventional set of charts. Having a rich library with these modules already in place lowers the barrier of entry for non-programmers interested in making data visualizations, while at the same time enabling non-linear solutions to data processes. Additionally Quadrigram provides a way for programmers to prototype solutions faster.

Quadrigram is brought to you by Bestiario, a leading company in data visualization and groundbreaking interactive systems. Since 2005 we have been offering solutions that enable businesses, institutions and individuals to visualize and comprehend complex data-sets. A part of our process involves combining concepts from art and science, and involving them in design, bringing years of experience to a powerful framework based on graph theory, topological algorithms, physical models, and geographical representations to provide the optimum solutions for our customers. The result of our ongoing effort has culminated into Quadrigram, a compelling tool to help you explore, manipulate and visualize information.

If you have the time, we would love for you to explore Quadrigram and promote it within your social circles. You can discover more information about it within our website, and check out specific content, such as:
