The visualization displays the correlation between popularity in music genres and drugs over the last 17 years. The goal was not to prove facts, but rather to let the viewer discover certain similarities and stimulate thoughts on what could have happened in a specific year. We chose two overlaying curves to visualize the correlation. Each popularity curve was normalized in order to display the correlation visually more clear.
Chemical Correlation is a group project from Michael Schönenberger, Katharina Durrer, and Dyon Ruiter. It was developed in 2017 at the ZHdK, the University of the Arts in Zurich, during the module Interactive Data Visualization with Joël Gähwiler and Benjamin Wiederkehr. The interactive web version is available here.
