Data Visualizations: U.S. Generation

U.S. Generation MapAs a visual learner and thinker, I find visualizing data to be the best way to begin to reveal the stories they tell. I’ve begun creating a collection of interactive data visualizations. The theme here, naturally, is energy data.

For the first set of visualizations, I’ve used the EPA’s eGRID Dataset that compiles information on electric generator capacity, energy production, emissions, age, and location, among other variables. These visualizations were all created in Javascript, using D3.js, and the code for these visualizations is available on Github.

Below are links to the two visualizations of those data:
