Our periodic table is inspired by
which roughly sizes elements by their frequency in the Earth's crust.
Searching for a more precise view led us to this experiment. The
visualization displays different types of element "sizes" encoded as
either bars or cubes. (Which do you like better? Try them both!) As a
bonus we've added a view of electron shells, so
you can see how Mendeleev's table beautifully reflects atomic structure.
