New beginnings

I have wanted to start a blog focused on data and healthcare for some time and finally decided to take the plunge as part of my  new year’s resolutions.  Every new year marks a new beginning.  This time last year I was starting a new job.  This year, I will be marrying the love of my life and we will be starting a new life together.  Because I’m far along in the wedding planning process (not a Bridezilla yet!), I thought it would be apt for my first blog post to be a visualization of our guest list.  I love learning new data tricks, so for this one I used the Great Circle Distance formula (using the average radius of the Earth) to calculate the distance between the wedding location (Durham, NC) and each of our wedding guests.  Click on the image to interact with the Tableau visualization.

I’m looking forward to sharing more data in the coming year!
