If you stacked all the world capitals by elevation into bins, how big would the bins be?
This is my first violin chart, a chart that shows distribution and is named because, well, it often takes the shape of a violin. The wide bulges indicate larger data bins. There gaps indicate that no world capitals exist at that elevation.


Is it a surprise that most cities are at sea level or just above?
