Digital Cartography [15]

The weekly hand-picked selection of interactive maps from all over the Internet

August 7, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Every time a new census is published, or a fresh development report comes out in the open, maps are usually used to illustrate the findings, either in static form or, more recently, with interactive maps. This edition of Digital Cartography brings several fresh maps from Brazil, after the new Human Development Index report for the country came out, in late July.

Besides those works, published in some of the main Brazilian news portals, we have the usual round-up of other mapping ‘extravaganzas’ from different countries, and with different styles and functions.

Hope you enjoy it!
