Visualizing Exponential Scale
A breakdown of the Youtube popularity of Girl Talk samples
In trying to compare the samples used in Girl Talk's mashup "Triple Double" I found it most intriguing to compare the Youtube popularity of the individual tracks. The most surprising fact, however, was that the range of numbers was on a scale between 2,000, and over 100 million. How do you visually compare numbers like that in a meaningful way? This is my solution. Enjoy!
