Debt & Destruction

Debt & Destruction: The cost of hurricanes each decade in the United States from 1900–2009

Right now, I have two disparate sets of data and I'm not sure how to possibly merge them into one map-based infographic. First, I calculated the cost of hurricane damage per decade. Then I counted the number of hurricanes recorded in each state.

I know there is a better way to approach this but I'm not sure what the next step is here.

Thanks for any leads!

Worked on the first draft. Simplified the content and would like to add that New Jersey is now a new strike zone as of 2012. Should also add more texture/color!

Thank you so much for all of your feedback! This was a great learning process. I feel like I have a better understanding of the basic principles and would be excited to work more on this piece in the future as well as new projects. This was a fantastic first Skillshare experience. Thanks again!
