Washington Hikes That Are Good for Kids

Click on the image to go to the interactive version.

Best Practices:
  • Good color choice for the topic
  • Great icon choices
  • Excellent titles and subtitles that tell me what's going on in the viz
  • Including detailed information about the parks is a great touch
  • Location and layout of the filters is wonderful
  • This is not only a beautiful viz, it's will be very useful for hikers in Washington.
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Fix the capitalization of the title
  • I find the font a bit hard to read in a browser; it looks much better printed.
  • The hover doesn't work on all of the bars (I think this is a v9 bug which I've reported).
