I found this pretty cool info-graphic depicting 3,313 Sasquatch reports over the last 92 years. The graphic was put together by Josh Stevens using
data from the Bigfoot Field Researchers organization.
Right away you can see that sightings are not evenly distributed. At first glance, it looks a lot like a map of population distribution. After
all, you would expect sightings to be the most frequent in areas where there are a lot of people. But a bivariate view of the data (right) shows a
very different story. There are distinct regions where sightings are incredibly common, despite a very sparse population. On the other hand, in some
of the most densely populated areas sasquatch sightings are exceedingly rare.
I find it interesting that there is a huge increase of reports between 2000 and 2010. I'm sure increased population, the development of smart phones,
and increased awareness are the reasons for the huge increase. My question is, with the uptick in reports and the overwhelming majority of people
having a smartphone equipped with a camera, why have we not seen any reliable proof. I personally believe there is something to the sasquatch legend,
but the question has to be asked.
Side note: I wanted to embed the images, but since the makeover, I haven't been able to upload anything. I've tried with large and small files with
Internet Explorer and Firefox. I even tried from my smartphone. It just freezes. Anyone else having problems?
