All museum data has been aggregated and anonymized in data/collection.csv. Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade data provided by slavevoyages.org

Getting Started

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
-100 5
15 5
1993 5

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.
