Interactive Inspiration [51]

The latest Interactive Infographics and data visualizations

August 30, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

It’s not hard to choose this week’s most talked about visualization. Released yesterday (29/08) by The Washington Post, Funding the intelligence program tells the story behind the U.S. “black budget”, the money distributed between over a dozen agencies that make up the National Intelligence Program.

The set of visualizations breaks down the numbers disclosed in the FY2013 Congressional Budget Justification Book (pdf), providing an effective and insightful overall view on one of the hottest topics in newsrooms today.

Another interesting multimedia project comes from Brasil’s top newspaper, Folha de S. Paulo. This time, the focus of this Snow Fall-like story is the equally controversial situation of the Guantanamo Bay prison. We brought some of the visualizations used in that story, that you can read here (in Portuguese).

And there’s a lot more to see:
