Map of Nu Delta Alumni - Part 2

I found Plotly’s capability to be a bit lacking, so I spend another couple hours updating the map. Since creating the original data set, more alums have chimed in, so they’ve been included.

I have a new version written in Leaflet for R. This package is just as easy to use as Plotly, but with more options.

Peter Lee (2013) pointed me to CartoDB and I got my first proptype working there in 5 minutes, but it didn’t have enough control. It looks like the underlying Leaflet package drives CartoDB.

Ideally, there would be a slider for years. For now, each year is in its own group.

Map of Nu Delta Alumni

Recently, there’s been an email thread with Nu Delta alumni going back to 1956 checking in from different geographic locations.

I took an hour, grabbed the data, and put people on a map. (It took me longer to enter the data and figure out how to embed the image than the actual work.)

Sorry the map is a little clunky. This my first time using Plotly.

Edit: Looks like there are some bugs in Plotly showing the text. It works with Firefox. I’ll look into a different plotting package when I have some time.
