RE: Week 6: Mapping the Nation's Well-Being
Overcall, I like this visualization and agree with what preteep03 mentioned for the most parts. This visualization is very interactive, informative and friendly to viewers. The map and color hue are proper used especially for the hue. I think using one color is a good way in this case. Because viewers would know that dark yellow means higher percentage and light yellow means lower percentage at the beginning, they would apply this cognition to other maps. If the designer used different color hue for different maps then viewers need more time to figure out relationships between various color and various percentage. In addition, the zoom function effectively presents survey results of sub-areas in one state. The only part that I don't like is this visualization lacks information inside of each state, like what does the number stand for, the ranking works in a state or among the America. In general, this is a great visualization.
