Mapping Ellroy, part 1

As a¬†coincidental celebration of James Ellroy’s birthday, this is my first attempt at visualising geographic data from¬†The Big Nowhere using Tableau Public. It is currently limited to showing key locations for Danny Upshaw during the first part of the novel, with the goal of visualising how he moves outside of his own jurisdiction whilst pursuing his investigation into the murder of Marty Goines and subsequent victims. There’s much more to do here, both in terms of formatting and adding data, but after various false starts with other mapping software, I’ve decided to try and document my progress.
