Blog post for 11/24

Go to this link, which is a thread where people post data visualizations:

Find one visualization that you think is interesting, and, in your blog post:

  1. Provide a link to the post.
  2. Say where the person who created the visualization got their data from and what tool they used to create the data. Both the data source and the tool should be included in a comment beneath the visualization, but it may be buried under other comments, in which case you may have to search for it.
  3. Describe what the visualization is telling us. That is, in a short paragraph (3-5 sentences), explain how the visualization is giving us some insight into the data.
  4. If you had to, describe how you would change the visualization. Is there a different kind of graph/map/etc. that could be used to display the data? Or are there changes that could be made to the design, layout, formatting, etc.? How would those changes affect the insight into the data that the visualization provides?
