Intermediate Facets Interview Questions and Answers

10. What is sprite atlas?

Ans: A sprite atlas is a big image that contains many small images at predictable coordinates. The sprite coordinates start from the top-left corner of the image and proceed across and down from left-to-right and top-to-bottom.


11. Name any two properties of sprites in the visualization?


  1. spriteImageWidth - Rendering the width of sprite backing image in pixels.
  2. spriteImageHeight - Rendering the height of sprite backing image in pixels.
12. What are atlasUrl and spriteUrl?

Ans: atlasUrl - It is the URL of an atlas image that is used for backing sprites. Each sprite is mapped with the index of a data array to a rectangle of an atlas image.

spriteUrl - It is the URl of an image, the default sprite image used for backing sprites. Each sprite has the same image.

13. What are the stylistic properties?

Ans: It is an optional property which controls the elements with stylistic aspects of FacetDive.

14. Name two stylistic properties used by Facet?


  1. itemPositioningVerticalLabelColor - It is used in labeling the color for item positioning in the vertical direction.
  2. itemPositioningHorizontalLabelColor - It is used in labeling the color for item positioning in the horizontal direction.
15. What is Facets Atlasmaker?

Ans: The Facets Atlasmaker is a command-line utility and library used to create the sprite atlases.

16. What are the functionalities of Atlasmaker?

Ans: The functionalities of Atlasmaker are

  • To read the input image files from URL and local file.
  • Using default image file during unsuccessful conversion or retrieval of images in atlas.
  • Image resizing and conversion.
  • Parallelization of image fetch/conversion.
17. What are the four Facet Dive controls?

Ans: The four Dive controls are 

  • Faceting controls - which lays the records out in a grid information.
  • Positioning controls - arranges the items in each cell grid by stacking them to place it in a scatter plot.
  • Color controls - enables to specify the color for individual items.
  • Display controls - lets you specify the dive to render on each point.
18. Name the data properties of FacetsDive polymer.

Ans: The FacetsDive visualizations has two properties

  1. data - Array<{}> - An array of data objects to visualize.
  2. filteredDataIndicies - number[] - An array of indices into data object array.
