Since I live in Yucca Valley, California, a small desert community, I wanted to practice my data visualization skills on a  subject close to home. The website allows you to compare and contrast the weather and climate between any two cities of the world. I found it intriguing that my far-flung town has the most similar weather to a small town in Spain with a very long name as well as Damascus, Syria.


This is the first in a series of posters that graphically chart the weather for towns in my community. When displayed in the vacation rentals in this area, the posters can be valuable to both AirBnB guests and hosts. My plan is to expand this idea with infographic posters for tourism in the area, highlighting hiking, dining, sightseeing and other amusements for visitors to Joshua Tree and the surrounding areas. Between Joshua Tree and Yucca Valley alone, we have 2,429 active short-term vacation rentals.
