RAW, a project of the Density Design Lab, allows users to create visualizations of data through numerous types of graphs and charts.
Please contact us for our ECAS dataset. Then, drag and drop the file into RAW; choose your visualization; determine your facets; then customize the look of your data.
Click on the image for an example of what RAW can do. This is an alluvial graph showing the years of the letter on the left side, and the amounts of donations on the right side. Among other conclusions, this graph shows us that the ECAS received the most letters in 1947, but that the majority of them did not include donations. It also shows us that $10 was the most common amount donated. The yellow bar represents undated letters.
