Visualizing Public History Participation in Gilmore Girls

This week in Digital History we were tasked with creating simple data visualizations to familiarize ourselves with free tools we’d learned about in class or found on our own. While we were pointed to many really interesting freely-accessible datasets, I wanted to work with something that connected to other things I’ve been working on. While I don’t have data to process on Chamounix Mansion, I do have a (very uneven, very flawed) spreadsheet of public history occurrences in ‘Gilmore Girls.’ And I needed to post something over at Stars Hollow Historical Society because I’d been letting the team down. So I made some charts about Gilmore Girls. My charts (one of which is above) and disclaimers and limited conclusions can be found here: https://starshollowhistoricalsociety.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/data-visualizations-of-a-deeply-flawed-dataset/
