Ha! A really nice example of a pie chart. (And an interesting survey, too) https://nrkbeta.no/2018/01/01/this-is-what-the-year-actually-looks-like/ https://vis.social/media/5i-2X1a7mELJO0onzLk
New piece by Zeit (@colorfuldata et al) on street names in Germany allows to search for custom terms. I compared streets referring major cities (e.g. "Berliner Straße", "Frankfurter Allee"). Ordered from north to south.
Some visible tidbits: Berlin obviously wins. Frankfurt has two centers (with Frankfurt am Main and Frankfurt/Oder). Munich is split in two maps at the right bottom: demonym "Münchner" more often in the South, and "Münchener" in the rest.
ZEIT just published a nice (German-only) interactive feature about street names in Germany http://www.zeit.de/feature/strassenverzeichnis-strassennamen-herkunft-deutschland-infografik https://vis.social/media/KJ7J2uo2ZIa7BWHbiPg
One, two, one two... Is this thing on?
Hi! I am designing and developing data visualizations. My research typically resolves around casual vis, and urban data. I am a - still newish - prof at the University of Applied Sciences Mannheim in Germany, trying to bring together computer science and design students.
Thanks @scott for setting up this cozy place.
