Makeover Monday: David Cameron's Overseas Trips

No comments
It's election season in the UK and The Guardian recently released some data related to Prime Minister David Cameron's travels around the World. They provided a table of all of the data at the bottom of their post, but the only viz they provided was this view aggregated by continent.


First, bubbles make comparisons harder than they need to; bar charts are much better for comparisons. This view also doesn't provide any addition insight. I can't answer a simple question like "Which countries did Cameron visit in Europe and when?"

I only had a few minutes this morning to create an alternative and here's what I came up with in about 15 minutes.
