Library of Congress: Exploring Late 1800s Political Cartoons through Interactive Data Visualizations

Library of Congress: Exploring Late 1800s Political Cartoons through Interactive Data Visualizations. “Over the course of my three month internship with the LC Labs team, I developed a website/interactive data visualization which allows users to explore the late 1800s through political cartoons contained in the Cartoon Drawings collection. The main feature of the website is an interactive timeline that displays the number of cartoons in this collection, graphed by year. Users can select specific topics like ‘Grover Cleveland’ or ‘Caricatures’, then the timeline will update to show how these topics are represented over time.” How cool is this?
