I’ve been looking into development trends in Raleigh lately using open data.  Here’s a historical look at building permits over the past seven years using Plotly.  What trends do you see?

In my development environment the graph was stacked bars (far easier on the eyes), but when I uploaded it to the hosting site the bars ended up side-by-side.  Also, I could probably have incorporated some sort of sorting algorithm to make the bars look nicer.

Have suggestions for a visualization?  Leave a comment!
