For a historian, digital scholarship often involved small projects such as developing charts, graphs, or maps to emphasize particular components of a historian's work. Not only does the inclusion of a visual amid text highlight the importance of a particular point but those different forms of data visualizatation assist in communicating the relationship between different kinds of data. A chart can, for example, visually lay out the increase in migration to the United States from Ireland over the course of the 19th century while a map can underscore the importance of space to an argument.
