Early this year I made a visualization of a collection of cities and towns of hispanic origin in the U.S. I departed from a database I created of about 80 places across the U.S. where I included name, state, population and a short text on the origin of the name. My initial visualization was created using Processing. The program was not interactive and simply run through the database showing one place at the time like shown in the video below.
In the new version of Hispanic U.S. I used Mapbox Studio to create an interactive visualization of the map. I am still troubleshooting an issue with the display of special characters but I was able to customize the map and work through some details in CSS. Here’s the link to the interactive visualization.
