Irish Surgeons in India

Kieran Fitzpatrick studies the lives of Irish medical practitioners in the British Empire from 1880-1920, particularly those who worked in India. Kieran approached the Live Data project team about creating an interactive map to visualise this data to accompany his publications and conference presentations, this case study demonstrated that the interactivity provided by Shiny is not necesary for some visualisations.
