Project Description:
"Plants for a Future" catalogs more than 7,000 edible, medicinal, or generally useful plants for humans. This visualization maps this comprehensive catalog and gives you the ability to quickly see the balance of medicinal or edible uses, and which uses are most commonly found in plants. The nodes are the flowers, horizontally positioned between edible or medicinal based on their relative utility, while edges connect the uses on the left and right columns to each plant. The size of the label reflects how many edges it has, and therefore, how many plants have that property of usefulness or edible part.
