This week’s discussion focuses on visualizing change over time, as illustrated with railroad company board membership. Though you cannot plug in your own data here as with Wordle, you can adjust what the tool shows and how it shows it.
The questions are much the same as last week: can you imagine using a visualization tool like this for your own sources/data? Could this be useful for research? Or just as a way of presenting data? What kind of features would make such a tool more generally useful?
