Interactive Inspiration [23]

The State of the Union speech and the Pope's resignation are just some of the news visualized this week.

February 15, 2013

Apart from the State of the Union speech and the Pope’s resignation – subjects well explored by the general media outlets -, we found several visualizations covering deaths by homicide and other crimes, and not only in the U.S.. The Washington Post created one of the most impressive visualizations, but they were not the only ones, as we can see in today’s selection:
