This weekend I’ve added two new types of graph to the site, to help visualise some information. One shows Pepys’ increasing wealth during the diary period and the other shows how often an Encyclopedia topic has been referenced in the diary.
Here’s the first one:
There’s more information about it on a new Encyclopedia page for Pepys’ wealth. The graph will update automatically when Pepys mentions his current financial status (although it may lag by an hour or so due to caching).
Of course, many topics will have very few bars showing on their charts but for some it’s quite a handy perspective on their waxing and waning importance in Pepys’ life. If a bar reaches the very top of the graph that shows the topic has been mentioned every single day that month.
Again, these graphs will update whenever the topic is mentioned, although I’ve been a bit cautious with the caching and these may be a few hours out of date.
Do let me know if you have any thoughts on improving these, or ideas for any other information you’d like to see in some kind of graph format.
