Timelines of Museums' African Collections and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
Visualizing the correlation between museums' African collections and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade
What's the correlation between the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and the items in museums' African collections? This is a visualization putting these two pieces of data together, using publicly available museums data from a handful of museums.
All the anonymized musuem data is in a single CSV in
data/collection.csv. It's a two column file in the format:
|Year||Number of object|
To use your own museum's data, create a CSV formatted the same way and replace this file with yours. The visualization will render showing your data in the bottom half.
