An impressive effort here, Map of the growth of Colleges in America. In order to create the product, I’m told by creator, Mike Summons, that he manually searched for each college’s founding date and latitude/longitude, finishing with a list of 2,068 schools!
About the Project… eCollegeFinder is back with new map, this time it’s in motion! From the creators… Late in 2014, we stumbled across Flowing Data’s map showing “The Growth of Walmart”, which Excel Hero recreated using a simple Excel workbook. We found the map to be mesmerizing and immensely informative, telling the story of Walmart in such a simple fashion. So much so, that we decided to recreate a similar map of our own, this time looking at “The Growth of Colleges in America”.
