Looking back at 2013 with data visualization resources

Interactive projects, infographic galleries, blog posts and videos about the year that just ended.

Still recovering from a dashing holiday season, today we’ll repeat what we did last year, by compiling the most interesting 2013 retrospectives published online.

We begin by mentioning two of the major Internet companies, who’ve been playing a decisive role – each one on its own way – in the spreading of all kinds of information – including news. Twitter and Google have been pulling together yearly recaps for a while now, and this year wasn’t different.
