On last week's episode of the Tableau Wanna Be Podcast with Emily and Matt, Jewel Loree shared that her go-to strategy for developing a new viz was to think of the name first and go from there. I thought I'd give this approach a shot, and for some reason the word 'Bananarama' came into my head - maybe because I like bananas or maybe because I subconsciously love 80's pop music. Who knows.
So anyway, here's a viz on the worldwide banana trade, with data taken from http://faostat.fao.org/.
The most interesting thing I see here is what's going on with Belgium - lots of bananas go through Belgium on their way to Germany.
