Digital Cartography [18]

Another fresh set of interactive maps from all across the Internet

August 28, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

As tensions arise between the Western world and Syria, it’s only natural that this situation becomes one of the top stories covered by newsrooms across the globe. And even with the recent attacks to The New York Times website (and Twitter, and other news organizations before that) by the Syrian Electronic Army, we can definitively expect a lot of action from those newsrooms in the upcoming weeks.

The political and military situation in Syria and Egypt dominated the breaking News sections (ok, there was a lot of buzz as well around the VMA awards, but let’s not compare it with much more significant issues), but this week was filled with other interesting interactive visualizations that use maps as a central component for data exploration.

Here’s the full list:
