Eve Economy Website

I have started a new website that focuses on the Eve Economy using the data CCP releases, called eveeconomy.com



Why?

I play Eve for the economy.  It is the deepest economy i have seen in a game where the economy is not the prime aim - in this case, blowing up space ships is.

In prior years i used to look at the monthly Economy Reports released by CCP and commented on them in a limited way.

However, now that my coding skills have improved (notably python using pandas and matplotlib) i can better upload the data, manipulate it and visualize with much more depth and ease than i could on a spreadsheet.


What is the aim of the website?

Initially it will be to get all the economic data released by CCP into chart form.  I still have the indices to do but the RegionalSinks & Faucets, Ships Destroyed and longer term ISK / Production / Mining / Production data is all there.

Once that is done, i can start to cut and slice the data to see what it is telling us.

And then i can start to request more data from CCP.

Where i find them, i am adding links to third party content that also looks at the Eve economy.

And all the charts i produce are included on a chart book on the home page that can be downloaded


What data do i want now from CCP?

Actually, in the first place i am going to start asking for the methodology on how some of the data is calculated.  For example, if i add the daily Production value in October and compare to the sum of the Regional Production values then they are not the same and i want to find out why.  i call these the discrepancy charts.


The website

My ability to create a website is somewhat lacking, to be kind, so it will improve over time.  In the first instance, i need to work out how to update the charts as new data arrives rather than linking the website to my google drive.
