Interactive Inspiration [57]

Our weekly hand-picked selection of interactive data visualizations

October 11, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Although not as groundbreaking as Snow Fall, the New York Times released another amazing interactive story recently, with wich we open today’s Interactive Inspiration post. After all, the week is coming to an end, it’s time to recap the best interactive visualizations that came to our attention recently, and the “Short History of the Highrise” – a special documentary about living in and among high-rise buildings – certainly fits very well in here.

In fact, the NYT has two other interactive data visualizations featured here today: Janet L. Yellen, on the Economy’s Twists and Turns (with connected scatter plots, leading Alberto Cairo to write a short post about it), and an inspiring explanation about the Higgs Boson and the two physicists, François Englert and Peter Higgs that won the Nobel Prizefor their theory explaining how particles acquire mass. Drawings were made by no other than Nigel Holmes, and the graphics by Jonathan Corum, Alicia DeSantis, Xaquín G.V. and Josh Williams.

Hope you enjoy the full list, that has, of course, many more entries:
