Using the force to analyse a Star Wars survey

Hi everyone,

Here’s my Star Wars survey project, any feedback you have is massively appreciated, whether it’s on the code or the writing/structure aspect.

I attempted a few new things in this project, first I wanted to try and utilise the Seaborn data visualisation library as much as possible. I found that while it can do a good job of making nice looking plots, the data often requires a lot more manipulation before it’s ready to plot than if you were to just create the plot using the pandas pyplot wrapper.

Secondly, I had my first go at plotting geographic maps using the geopandas library. After what turned out to be a nightmare of a process trying getting it installed, I had a lot of fun learning geopandas and look forward to using it in future projects.

I think the process of installing geopandas deserves a seperate edu platform the size of Dataquest! :rofl:
