This very cool. Looks like ggplot2. Also worth publishing in this column is Menards famous “Carte Figurative” of Napoleon’s Russian Campaigne:
In fact it is ggplot2, good eye! Thank you for sharing the Carte Figurative, it looks very cool, although I’m trying to focus this column on visualizations I make myself in R, so I may not be able to post it. Perhaps in a few weeks I’ll do a special entry of the column on famous data visualizations readers might be interested in.
Sure. Understood. In any case now you have it. If first saw it in Tufte’s book “The Visual Display of Quantitative Information”. I have a reprint of the map framed on my wall. Take a close look: coming back soldiers die at river crossings.
If you are looking for interesting datasets here is standard data set for comparing North American universities and colleges along a large number of dimensions: https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/use-the-data
Thank you, I will certainly look into that! I’m sure there are lot of interesting stories that could come out of a dataset like that
