Interactive Inspiration [8]

In case you missed, some of the interactive features presented during the week

October 12, 2012  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Here we are with another edition of our weekly Interactive Inspiration, the place where we show off some of the most interesting projects, graphics and maps that came to our attention for the past days. No surprises, when it comes to main topics, with the U.S. elections leading the way, now that the debates between the candidates are on. Other topics covered during this week include the Nobel Prizes, the War on Drugs in Mexico and corruption in Spain.
