This project was an exploration of information architecture. My goal was to assemble a dataset, look for trends or interesting insights and then visualize it in an understandable and engaging way
I compiled my dataset by looking through climbing guides and noting attributes such as the location, height and difficulty of every climb I had completed.
I realized the most interesting aspect of my data was not the routes themselves but the locations I had traveled to do them. I decided to explore a visualization that indicated how far I traveled to each climbing area and the number of climbs I did there.
