I was extremely lucky to receive an advanced copy of gcmap written by the folks over at www.belenchavez.com. You see, gcmap is an excellent program that uses Google Charts API to create professional web quality charts using your Stata datasets. Don’t believe me? Check out this example below.
Every NFL team, every NFL stadium, with pictures! This dataset was created by using information from Wikipedia. I’ve taken my fair share of stuff from Wikipedia, but I’ve also donated every year to the Wikimedia foundation, and you should too!
Today is December 13, 2015 – which also marks Taylor Swift’s 26th birthday. Happy Birthday, Taylor! In an extension to NFL stadiums, I’ve merged data from all the North American locations Taylor Swift played at in her 1989 World Tour. Here’s another example of how you can use gcmap in order to produce some great (although somewhat creepy) maps.
Enjoy - I hope we see a lot more Stata + Google Charts in the months to come!
