I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves (Michelle Obama)
Some days ago I was invited by the people of Highcharts to write a post in their blog. What I have done is a simple but revealing map of women senators of the United States of America. Briefly, this is what I’ve done to generate it:
read from the US senate website a XML file with senators info
clean and obtain gender of senators from their first names
summarize results by state
join data with a US geojson dataset to create the highmap
