eBay Visualizes Black Friday 2009
Black Friday is over (thank goodness) and now it’s time for the next part of this popular financial holiday: Analyzing the data. Ebay gets credit for being first with their new website featuring a map of all transactions performed through the eBay Marketplace on Black Friday.
This transaction map was created as a study of the extensive activity that occurs in the eBay Marketplace on the biggest offline shopping day of the year. It is a visualization of all U.S.-based buyer and seller transactions on eBay on Black Friday, November 27, 2009 (12:00:00 AM to 11:59:59 PM EST). Although eBay is an international marketplace, this map is focused on U.S. data, as Black Friday is the traditional beginning of the holiday shopping season for the U.S.
Hit their site for the interactive map where you can zoom into your region of interest, and see the transactions over time.
