Map of Rainy Days in 10 CitiesPosted: September 22, 2013
The challenge was to create a conceptual map of a data set.
I decided to present the number of rainy days per year in 10 cities around the world.
I chose rainy days per year rather than annual rainfall because a rainy day is a more personal piece of information. It’s tough to imagine 25.59 inches of rain (the annual rainfall of Helsinki). It’s easier to imagine a rainy day. (Or 113 days of rain in a year, in Helsinki’s case.)
