An Proof of Concept Open Source Amazon Athena.
This table contains over 1700 unique names found in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database and their popularity in the United States over time as stated by the Social Security Administration. Each row containts a bar chart of the total babies born in a given year with that name. The table is searchable and filterable. The motivation for this project was a proof of concept using Sparklines. The bar charts within the table provide an interesting way to consume the data, but come with challenges. Without axes, it’s hard to know which year a specific bar corresponds to. Despite the limitations of the chart, I still find it refreshing to consume.
