Visual experiments

Created by a participant at the "Wuthering Hacks : re-using library data" hackathon at Newcastle City Library on 9 April 2016.

 

The participant used Raw (app.raw.densitydesign.org) to do visualisations using the "top 5 most borrowed titles in Newcastle Libraries in March 2016" data. The idea was to see how data could be turned from a raw format into an aesthetically pleasing item.

 

 

The "top 5" titles included:

1) NYPD Red / James Patterson

2) A spool of blue thread / Anne Tyler

3) Kate Mosse / The taxidermist’s daughter

4) Thin air / Ann Cleeves

5) Peppercorn street / Anna Jacobs

1) The eternally packed suitcase / Lisa Matthews - MISSING from spreadsheet

2) The tearaway / Dean Williams
