Release Notes

You've probably heard that there's an obesity epidemic going on in the United States. Every wondered how bad it is? We mined the data from a CDC study on the topic and its unnerving. This visualization takes an interactive infographic approach to presenting the obesity trend in the US since the mid-eighties. Each state is represented by a tee shirt, and the size of the tee shirt is proportional to the percentage of population that has a BMI over 30

Check out the visualization here.

  • Great example of presentation/code separation through the use of XAML for animations and UI
