The British Invasion – Visualizing The Beatles’ Popularity

About This Visualization

The British Invasion is a visualization of record chart data for the Beatles in the UK and the US over time, shedding light on their amazing cross-over success that led to a tidal wave of successful UK rock bands in the US. The US record chart data is based on Billboard Hot 100 singles chart positions and the UK record chart data is based on The Official Charts Company chart positions.

This visualization was created by Michael Porath and Alex Smolen for the Information Visualization course at the UC Berkeley School of Information.
