Using the Cushman Collection¬†and Google Fusion Tables (for the first time), I made a pie chart with the category “Genre 1.” With this graphic, I limited the maximum amount of slices to 5; Google chose the five most reoccurring genre titles to display.

These piecharts are helpful to visualize how many pictures are being taken in that specific genre. For example, most of the photos are “identification photographs.”

Comparing these two pie charts also reveals how data publishers could conceal information by limiting what they reveal (the maximum amount of slices in this case).
