I’m sorry the map won’t embed on my site, but here’s a link to it.

<style>.embed-container {position: relative; padding-bottom: 80%; height: 0; max-width: 100%;} .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container iframe{position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%;} small{position: absolute; z-index: 40; bottom: 0; margin-bottom: -15px;}</style>

  1. Emma, your map is pretty cool to look at and explore. There are some problems with the legend and data. For instance, what do the Low and High refer to? likelihood of an eruption? That’s something that would need explaining. I like the way that you indicate the different types of volcanoes, but the legend, or a bit of text on your site, would need to explain what all of those types are, as well. In the info boxes, there’s a bit of information that’s not clear. What does status refer to? Does Status: Holocene mean that it has erupted in the holocene? A few of the info boxes come up with some coding that won’t mean anything to readers. Trying to get the boxes so they’re consistent and have easy to understand information will make the map more engaging for readers. This could be one of those maps where you explore it for hours and learn a lot.
