This tool maps out which charts are appropriate for telling various 'stories' with your qualitative data, such as whether you're trying to outline a hierarchy of concepts, the flow of events, a comparison between or a cluster of ideas or responses, or to highlight comments/words.

We’ve previously featured that 1931 “History of the World!” histomap, an impressive condensing of 4000 years of human activity. The evolution graphic you see here, also from 1931 and “arranged” by John B. Sparks, is equally impressive, and speaks to the times in ways that DeMille’s Bible movies did as well. Bear in mind that the Scopes Monkey Trial had only concluded six years earlier, and the country—as it is again today—was hotly divided over the subject represented here. Nonetheless, Sparks and publisher Rand McNally gamely presented this “Story of the Emergence and Progression of Life” with confident precision and without apology.

Interactive Map: The World as 1,000 People

My only disapiontment with the Histomap is that an expanded version has not yet been released! I have been hoping to see one that extends through the second world war, and up to at least 2000. After January 6, he became obsessed with it. He showed the map to visitors, brought it up in conversations and speeches. More than once, he found himself staring at it alone in his office at night.

Here’s the full ranking of America’s best universities, along with annual tuition requirements. Rank The period of Cowley recognized theories of racial, cultural, and natural supremacy, but such qualities, as in Sparks’ map, were the product of a long line of succession from equally powerful and noteworthy empires and groups to others, not a social evolution in which a superior race naturally arose. Rand McNally advertised the chart as presenting “the march of civilization, from the mud huts of the ancients thru the monarchistic glamour of the middle ages to the living panorama of life in present day America.” While the blurb is filled with pseudoscientific colonialist talking points, the chart itself has the dated, yet strikingly egalitarian arrangement of information that—like much of the illustration in National Geographic—sought to accommodate the best consensus models of the times, displaying, but not proselytizing, its biases. Best” is of course subjective, and U.S. News and World Report has compiled 19 metrics on which they evaluated more than 400 national universities. Some of them include: Furthermore, individual engagement at college (irrespective of the rank of the school in question) plays a far bigger role in learning and general well-being than simply attending a highly-ranked school. However these costs are tuition-only, and don’t account for other necessary expenses: accommodation, food, and textbooks. Best University versus Best “Fit”The article is a fascinating look inside today’s Senate and especially the MAGAfied Republican Party. It also includes this passage about a map on Romney’s wall. I use this when I'm growing frustrated with trying to make a text-heavy report look more engaging. I find I fall into visualisation traps when it comes to qualitative data, so having a range of options mapped onto different purposes like this is really helpful to start thinking about what would work. Why would you recommend it to other people? It shows in a simple way what charts are appropriate for the story you want to tell with your data. Finding the best university for prospective students is more than just perusing a long ranking list.

The similarity here isn’t simply one of form. The “outline” functioned in much the same way that simplified animations do—condensing heavy, contentious theoretical freight trains and ideological baggage. Rebecca Onion describes the chart as an artifact very much of its time, presenting a version of history prominent in the U.S. between the wars. Onion writes: The Egyptian empire had reigned for some 900 years before it was overtaken by the Assyrians. Then the Persians, the Romans, the Mongolians, the Turks—each civilization had its turn, and eventu­ally collapsed in on itself. The chart emphasizes domination, using color to show how the power of various “peoples” (a quasi-racial understanding of the nature of human groups, quite popular at the time) evolved throughout history.

Visualizing 30 Years of Investor Sentiment

Aside from the numerous schools present within each university—which can often be the best for specific majors—factors like location, proximity to family, campus culture, the non-academic pursuits (sports, extracurriculars, internships) are also taken into consideration.
