Digital Cartography [39]

Fresh interactive maps tackling socio-economical issues and more.

February 5, 2014

Last Saturday, on our Data Viz News post, we’ve mentioned Ekuatorial, a GeoJournalism website that combines storytelling with data visualization to contextualize events with the broader patterns of environmental change in Indonesia. Developed with the help of our friends of ((o))Eco – the same that created InfoAmazonia – it provides timely news and visualizations about the oceans, forests, and natural disasters of that country. So, to open this edition of Digital Cartography, we picked three of the maps that are part of Ekuatorial.

Another map that we’d like to mention is TeleGeography‘s Submarine Cable Map 2014. Every year, this Washington-based company updates this map, to reveal who owns the networks, their landing points and how far these cables can stretch.

Here are this week’s picks:
