Data analysis and visualization not only utilizes scientific methods and principles, but artistic ones as well. This means that the intent of a message can be taken in many ways or few ways, depending on the artist's materialization of the message.
Recently, a study was published on nature.com that analyzed the rise in ocean plastics over the last 60 years. This study took data from 1957 to 2016 from a towed marine sampler over 6.5 million nautical miles. ...we created our own data visualizations to take a look at the rise in ocean plastics over 60 years.
Over the past few weeks and the next few coming up, we'll be adding each visualization type we offer to our Visualization Examples page. It's been quite the fun challenge for us as we've been using purely public data sets.
