Nellie Bly was a journalist, who aimed to travel around the world in less than 80 days, as described in a book by Jules Verne. This Tableau dashboard, Round the World with Nellie Bly depicts the journey that she took, outlining the rout taken and the length of time spent along each leg of her route.
About This Dashboard
This dashboard was created for the Women In Analytics 2019 Data Visualization Competition. I was extremely honored that on March 3, 2019, this dashboard was featured on Tableau Public’s Viz of the Day.
This dashboard was inspired by the Drunk History episode on Nellie Bly’s journey around the world from 1889-1890. The data in this dashboard is from Nellie Bly’s book Around the World in Seventy-Two Days.
