Data Visualizations

 

Data Visualizations

These are two data visualization projects. The first poster looks at the correlation between the gross national income and energy consumption of different countries. I found that countries with a high GNI on average also consumed more energy, and I visualized that information in a variety of ways.

The first section of the infographic shows a graph displaying Energy Consumption of the top 30 countries on the top half, and Gross National Income on the bottom half.

The second section splits it up by continent to show the highest ranking countries from both data sets, and displays the top 10 Energy Consuming countries and their rank in Gross National Income.

The third section links countries that rank in the top 30 for both sets of data, showing the large amount of overlap.

The second poster shows the population in every country in the world in the years 2000 and 2010. I placed a light colored circle and a dark one over each country and separated them by continent. The lighter circle shows the population size in 2010, and the darker one shows the population in 2000. I also color coded these numbers to differentiate further between countries with different sized populations.

The explanation of the visualization system - the lighter circle represents the population size in 2000, and the lighter circle represents the change in 2010.
