Data Visualization 1 (Line Graph of Top 6 Publishing Cities)

Data Visualization 1 (Line Graph of Top 6 Publishing Cities)

I had experimented with different forms of data manipulation, and I ultimately chose to use relatively simple techniques or my data visualizations. My two data visualizations provide a presentation of publishing cities found in the END database and showcases the rise and decline of the top six publishing cities throughout this time period. One is in the form of a line graph and the other is in the form of a map.

This Google Fusion Tables line graph reveals that London had, for the most part, published the most books compared to the other top publishing cities during this time period. London experienced its peak in the 1810s and immediately plummeted by the 1820s. Of the American cities, Philadelphia was, for the most part, consistently in the lead in comparison to New York and Boston.
