For week 41, Andy chose a dataset about donations accepted by political parties, published by the electoral commission. The visualisation is an interactive Tableau dashboard, but it’s far from best practices and screams for a makeover
There is a dataset we’ve had in our backlog for months and I’m excited that Andy decided to use it for this week. It’s about book checkouts at the Seattle Public Library, particularly those of work by James Patterson.
September 1st is the first day of autumn, meteorologically speaking. So I picked a dataset about how Americans feel about the different seasons.

By now we all know that the environment and how we treat it is something we can’t ignore any longer and we seriously need to change what we’re doing if we want our children and grand children to have a livable planet.
