Digital Cartography [14]

Interactive maps are becoming more common than ever. Check out some of the latest.

July 31, 2013

This edition of Digital Cartography starts with a couple of maps published online by the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. In this gallery, the newspaper will be releasing a set of 20 interactive maps that illustrate several social, cultural and economical issues that affect – and perhaps, even help define – Switzerland in a modern context. This work of data journalism -“Schweizer Karten“, that can be translated to “Swiss Cards”- is definitively an interesting one to be followed by other news rooms, and we’ll be featuring other maps in this space in the upcoming weeks. (thanks to Moritz Stefaner for sharing this tip on Twitter).

Of course that we have many more interactive maps for you to enjoy, so let’s move on to this week’s full list:
