D3 Experiments - Interactive Mapping07 Jan 2016
In anticipation of a job interview for a data analysis/graphics position (but mostly because I wanted to play around with D3), I created a map which allows for exploration of student loan data. In particular I present information regarding # of federal loans awarded to undergraduates, number of $$$ awarded, and relative population by state. The loan values are for individuals attending school in the given state.
Give it a try and explore the data!
One of the reasons why I am so excited about interactive data visualization is that it really allows the user to explore the data themselves in order to get a better understanding for what is going on. I encourage you to play around with the map below; take a look at the various variables using the drop-down and explore numbers for individual states by hovering over them.
Thanks for reading! If you're interested in how I created this map, you can check out the repository here.
