This web application is an experiment in using scale normalization to explore the communication of widely ranging data.

The height of the center bar is kept constant, and all of the other bars are scaled relative to it. The user may select another bar to bring it to the center. The difference is particularly stark when selecting Christmas Day in comparison to 12/28.

Data was acquired with Perl, formatted using a Regular Expressions editor, and plotted with Javascript and the D3.js library
