This demo displays book volumes (adjusted by state population) for each US state library in dataset 353 on a map of the US. Darker colors indicate more books available to library users. Readers can easily see the following
- New York state library has the largest number of books, but it also has a large population. Therefore it has a low number for average books per person.
- East coast, West coast, plus Texas state library hold more book. Maybe that is because of their population.
- some states, such as Maryland, reported 0 in book volume. Further investigation on State Libraries statistical data (http://harvester.census.gov/imls/data/stla/index.asp) will be useful.
|v1 - just books||v2 - books per person|
- This is an easy demo and you may copy its code to build your first government data visualization.
