About

Welcome to the data visualization portal!

This app uses microplastics sample data from the California Open Data Portal.

Below is a map that allows you to select multiple locations, and the popup markers present overview information about the plastics at those sites.

The concentration and source of plastics of the selected locations are then displayed in a rain cloud plot below.

The table directly generates the data from the Open Data Portal, and shows additional information regarding the characteristics of the plastics.
