final VERSION interface

I used the D3.js-based Day/Hour Heatmap to visualize the data. The more I consumed, the darker the color on the visualizations become. You can see from the daily map that I usually over-consumed around the weekend. When you hover over each day unit, all the information about that day is shown at the bottom of the map. The pie chart visualizes the ratio of inebriation.

 
 

The data is linked to Google maps to visualize geo-location. It shows a more solid color based on the frequency of visiting a place.
