It's official: Metavbible.com is now Viz.Bible!

MetaV has come a long way since it started as a Microsoft Access database in 2008. At first I tacked it onto an old personal blog. When Tableau Public was launched, I put it there right away. When …

I'm doing some calcs in my head on the Nevada results here:

1. Trump got more votes than the next two combined. What does that say for his chances in the impossible event Rubio and Cruz combine forces?
2. The Bush dropout didn't increase vote share for anyone but Trump. Rubio and Cruz came close to their pre-cacus, pre-Jeb dropout polls. Trump beat them by a lot.

These two things would scare me if not for choosing the fear of the Lord in advance of our totalitarian future.

How is it possible I've never seen this app? So much of this looks like what I'm going for with my own Bible database. Really worth checking out!

Wow, thanks. Very cool. I've needed something that will do this but is lightweight enough to work on my phone.

Here's a cool new wind prediction map that just launched. It includes whether the prediction is strong, if wind will increase or decrease, and shows you areas with installed wind power.

Here's a tip that's especially useful for mobile dashboards. http://tabsoft.co/1niFoDu
Note: This is a guest post by Tableau Zen Master Robert Rouse. This post first appeared on the InterWorks blog. Some of my favorite mobile apps like Slack, Feedly, and Google Maps have a slideout menu that appears when I tap on a small icon. That common design element makes plenty of room for user inputs and gets them out of the way when you’re done. It’s perfect for small screens.

This could open up amazing possibilities for mapping events in the New Testament.
 
Have you ever wondered: What's the best route from Camulodunum to Korinion? Should you take the direct route via Verlamium? Or the more southerly one, through Londinium?

Well, now you can find out, thanks to the [sort of] Google Maps of Ancient Rome!

(via non-public share)
If you're anything like me, you'll have spent many years fretting over a single vexed question: What's the best route from Camulodunum to Korinion? Should you take the direct route via Verlamium? Or the more southerly one, through Londinium? It's a tricky one.

If you have an iPad and like data, you should check out the Vizable app. I used it recently to poke around in poll data.

Visual thinking methods are helping me a lot lately, even with Bible study. My young son likes it, too. Here are some ideas to try.
Pictures are easier to process and recall than words. We usually don’t remember every detail, but the main subjects are clear. As a parent, I will remember the recent Easter Sunday when I tri…

Humanizing abortion statistics

Today I'm launching an animated data story, anotherlifetaken.org, that shows abortion data for what it is: thousands of tiny human lives lost every day.

The individuality of abortion victims gets lost in numbers as large as 58 million since 1973. It’s hard to relate personally to cold, dead facts. Another Life Taken shows each child as an individual, not an aggregate. The story concludes with women sharing the effects of their choice and redemption in Christ.

Please have a look and share with people you know.

+Woozle Hypertwin Yes, just the U.S. I may do something on worldwide stats in the future, depending on the response this one gets.

I knew there had to be a paper trail. Here it is (some of it).
Just days after a Texas grand jury ignored evidence of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies' body parts and indited whistle blower David Daleiden instead,

Vox is often seen as an example of the "right" way to do data journalism, yet time and again I see them begin deceptive. This immigration viz is all over my feed today, but it's misleading post-2000s: https://t.co/zlwQuwhroq

They group previous years into decades but split 2010-2013 into individual years. This leads the reader to perceive a huge dropoff post-2000. But that's not true. There has been a slight decline, but nowhere near the exaggerated view given by Vox in their concluding slide.

Here's a visually accurate view: https://t.co/PlP5tNLc08

This article perfectly describes something I've been noticing. The ratched-up outrage following mass murders is indicative that gun control advocates have failed to persuade the general population and they're very upset about that.

"It shows you how desperate and frustrated the editors — and liberals generally — are with the fact that this country doesn’t agree with them on guns."

"What’s true for lawyers is also true for newspapers: When you’re shouting and pounding the table, it’s probably because you’re losing the argument."

I've worked hard over the last few months to curate some great circles here on G+. I really like almost everyone I follow, or at least find them terribly interesting. But this issue has caused several of them to lose their minds. They aren't even talking about background checks or other similar "via media" solutions either. They all want confiscation-type scenarios to start on Monday.
