The first pick for today’s Interactive Inspiration is not really a data visualization ‘per se’, but a whole site, one that marks the beginning of the marketing campaign for the the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past. By browsing through the Trask Industries site, you’ll get a sense of what’s the plot and the history of the mind behind the Sentinels, Bolivar Trask, played by Peter Dinklage. And of course, with some visualizations in the middle.
But that’s just one of the many featured interactives we separated for you. For instances, the Listen to Wikipedia project is worth checking out, and we most definitely recommend the Two Energy Futures website, by the UK Tar Sands Network. It has a great set of visualizations to compare two possible models of energy production and consumption for the year 2035.
Hope you enjoy the full list!
