Digital Cartography [21]

Breaking News and other inspiring uses of interactive maps

September 18, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

So far, this has been another dreadful week for the U.S. and in particular in the Washington D.C. area, where another tragic shooting ended up with a dozen people dead and several others wounded. A gunman – already identified as 34-year-old Aaron Alexis, a former naval reservist in Fort Worth, Texas – opened fire Monday (16/09) morning in and around a Navy facility building in Washington, killing at least 12 people. As many as 3,000 people work at US Navy Yard, which is blocks away from the US Capitol.

The situation in Syria is still one of top news, and today’s Digital Cartography continues to feature interactive maps that explain – or at least, illustrate – the developments in the region. And there’s much more, with a total of 27 visualization about these and many other issues.

Hope you enjoy!
