Post Something You Find Interesting to Our Facebook Group

Posted to Site News  |  Nathan Yau

FacebookI started a FlowingData Facebook group a couple of weeks ago, and I guessed that about two people would join. I was slightly off, and we're up to 92 now (plus me), which makes me happy. Thank you for making me happy you 92 people :).

I do have one more favor to ask of you. If there's anything you find interesting - data sets, visualization, art pieces, analyses, posts from your own blogs - please do post to our group. My hope is that FlowingData will grow into more of a community than just me on my soap box. As much as I like hearing myself talk, I like listening to what others have to say a lot more.

If you haven't joined the FlowingData Facebook group yet, I highly encourage it. We're from all areas of the data world from statistics to design, computer science, to education, psychology, economics, and many others, which makes for very good conversation.

Reviving the Statistical Atlas of the United States with New Data

Due to budget cuts, there is no plan for an updated atlas. So I recreated the original 1870 Atlas using today’s publicly available data.
