This visualization is a prime example of the storytelling capabilities Arrays has to offer. The data-driven story begins with a heatmap of the US showing search data is paired with a timeline. In addition to showing the larger trend from 2004 through to the present, it also enables filtering by a specific year. Mid-way on the page is a side-by-side comparison of two country-level heatmaps, one showing an aggregate view of the search data, the other showing the CDC data, calling attention to the similarities and differences between the two datasets. Further down, a scatterplot focuses on the relationship between the two datasets, with the most closely-related metro areas situated along the center diagonal. Readers can find their own metro area via a search box above the scatterplot. A series of small multiple maps for each of the topics and both datasets concludes the article. Explore the visualization.
