As side project for this semester’s CILO II course I completed an interactive map exhibit for “Unrestricted: The Campaign to Sink the Japanese Merchant Fleet During World War II” The map is currently hosted on this site. View it here.
The map breaks the campaign up into ten distinct periods based upon major offensives and increases attrition rates suffered by the Japanese merchant fleet. It was built mostly from materials generated for the original project…and done so with newly acquired R coding skills.
I’m quickly becoming an accidental naval historian.
