This visualization project was created as part of the MakeOverMonday project.

The original visualization

My goals with this visualization project:

My main goal with this project was to make it Explanatory. I set out to answer these questions with this project:

  1. Where does Nike have the most number of factories?
  2. Where does Nike employ the most number of workers?

I have seen (from the outside) a numbers of garment factories for international brands in India. They are typically multi-storied buildings with rows of tube lights visible through the open windows. I do not have data on how huge these factories are and how many people they employ. I have always wondered though.

Hence with this dataset I set out to calculate the number of workers per factory across all 42 countries in which Nike manufacturing facilities are set up.
