  2. Page views for 260,418 works of art from May 13, 2009-August 9, 2014

    Each square represents an item in the museums' collection. If an item was viewed online on a given day, it flashes red. The height of an item is determined by the number of page views.

    This visualization shows four different ways of sorting the data. The terrain on the top left is ordered by object number, the top right is ordered by verification level, the bottom left is ordered by classification (i.e. Paintings, Coins, Sculpture, etc), and the bottom right is ordered by culture (British, Japanese, Peruvian, etc).
