I've never seen a chart l like this! What do the bar lengths and color intensities/opacities(?) indicate?

The amount the ingredient deviates from above or below the average.

The average of that recipe across sources?


ns0 OP t1_j0vw67e wrote

The columns are the recipes and the rows are all of the ingredients across every recipe; then the dots represent whether the recipe contains the ingredient and the intensity and direction indicates if it uses more or less than the average amount of that ingredient.

Uhm, good question, I just coded it up for my website with html, css and javascript; i'm not sure what the name of it might be.
