Interactive Inspiration [73]

Round up of dynamic visualizations to explore and learn from.

February 14, 2014  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

With the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics Games’ first week gone, the volume of interactive features about the event keeps growing, as you’ll see in today’s round up. We bring you a dozen visualizations focused on the games, adding to the ones previously featured here and here.

No doubt the series of interactive stories developed by The New York Times is, as usual, one of the most impressive and complete so far, but you should check out what The Washington Post has been doing, and Twitter’s special page with the most-shared Olympics photos on Twitter.

A final mention to the long-form article about Iouri Podladtchikov, published by the Swiss newspaper Neue ZĂĽrcher Zeitung – also featured in this post – which includes a visualization created by Interactive Things. Peter Gassner shared some of the details behind this project here.

Here are the interactive picks of the week:
