Digital Cartography [23]

Bringing you the best interactive maps from across the Internet

October 2, 2013

In addition to our usual selection of interactive maps from across the Internet, today’s Digital Cartography includes some of the entries submitted to Visualising.org‘s challenge ‘Visualizing Hospital Price Data‘. Tasked to create greater transparency in the healthcare field, creators tackled data released from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) showing hospital charges and medicare payments.

The winners were announced yesterday, and we picked out some of the visualizations that used maps as a core element to open this post. The gallery with all the 52 projects is here, and we’ll be also including some of these entries on the next issue of Interactive Inspiration.

Here’s the full list:
