scholarbot asked: Thank you for posting the Palladio. Was wondering how you got the reporter coordinates to visualize on the map. I seem to be having some data issues. Thanks!
Palladio requires that longitude and latitude be in the same data column, so it’s necessary to do a bit of Excel/Numbers/Google Drive work prior to pasting in your data.
In Excel, create a new column and title it “coordinates” (or whatever, doesn’t really matter). Then use the concatenate function in Excel like so:
=CONCATENATE([longitude cell], “, “, [latitude cell])
Then fill the entire column with that equation.
Palladio will recognize this column as location information.
Our data scientists at PlaceIQ analyzed hundreds of thousands of mobile devices to understand the habits of baseball fans, throughout last season. It’s fascinating, though I’m still recovering from the fact that Giants fans are among the most dedicated stadium-goers (but yesterday’s blowout eases the pain). (Via PlaceIQ)
