Million Monkeys Visualization

Million Monkeys Visualization

At last weekend’s Hack4Reno, I created a new visualization of the Million Monkeys’ data.  It allows you to choose your favorite work of Shakespeare and find out how a particular character was found.  You simply place or hover the mouse over a character and the box to the right will show the number of times that character was found.

For more information on the Million Monkeys Project, go here.

To make this visualization possible, I took the ~3GB of raw monkey data and generated a JSON output.  This was tricky because I had to break the works of Shakespeare down into individual works.  Once I had the JSON data, I wrote some Javascript that used JQuery to show the data and allow the interactions.

NOTE: It was a 24 hour Hackathon and there are a few bugs.
