For my map visualization, I plotted each hotel, and color-coded them so national boundaries could emerge. The map is tilt-, zoom-, and pan-able, so the data can be explored.
I thought I had discovered some amazing pattern about foreign hotel ownership or something, but upon further inspection of the data, I realized that the second color represented hotels without a country listed in the csv. Womp womp.
For the final version, I colored all points without a given country value white, so they’re still kind of visible if you look for them, but not immediately.
I’m having issues with file uploading, so expect sketches soon!
