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

August 14, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Maps have evolved to a point where they can definitively paint a good picture when analyzing many types of topics. Today’s Digital Cartography includes some good examples, like the impressive Racial Dot Map, developed by Dustin Cable, or the Levels of deprivation in London, a visualization created with Tableau Public, by business operations and analytics consultant company Concentra. And what about The Washington Post’ Great Falls Park story? Another amazing example on how to include maps in a visual multimedia narrative.

And these last few days, a particular article about maps by Max Fisher precisely for The Washington Post has been moving around the Internet: 40 maps that explain the world. You’ll see the myriad of subjects illustrated in these maps, breaking down behaviors and emotions at a global scale. Also, there are some curious and even funny ones, so don’t miss it.
