I received thousands of emails every month. For my final, I gather my NYU email data and visualize them. Now I can see how much emails I received every hour in a day.
First step is to gather my email data. By using gmail python api, I could easily access all my emails and collecting the info I want. Here is a python library.
I realized I got around 1400+ emails last month, so I gather all the time information from 04-01-16 until now. And just save as txt file in the following format:
And then find a day and counts them by hour, and use d3.js to visualize it.
