Knowledge output in Chinese cities

Source: ZSI, Mike Bostock, Tom Carden and Gapminder for the visualisation; Datenna and Web of Science for the data.

This is a modified version of Mike Bostock's recreation in D3 of Gapminder’s Wealth & Health of Nations, made famous by Hans Rosling’s memorable 2006 TED talk. It shows the development of publication and patenting output in Chinese cities using data from Web of Science and Datenna. The size of the bubbles represents population of the metropolitan area (acc to wikipedia in 2016).
