My first #makeovermonday

As a break from various other stressful things going on at the moment, I’ve decided to take part in my first #makeovermonday, as hosted by Andy Kriebel of the Information Lab, who I saw speak at the London Tableau User Group a couple of weeks ago.

The idea is that Andy posts a visualisation that he’s found, and then he has a go at making it clearer and better, and invites us to do the same.

So – here’s my first go. It’s based on an article in BusinessInsider entitled Travel agents are a relic of the past — and hotels could be next. I’ve tried to illustrate the huge magnitudes of change in the revenue generated by online hotel bookings, alongside the provided comparison of the decline of travel agents, by using a percentage change from the initial value for 2000.
