Digital Cartography [79]

Round up of interactive maps published recently

November 20, 2014

Many of the topics that have been on the top of the news for these past weeks are represented in this edition of Digital Cartography, either it’s the Ebola outbreak, the conflicts in Iraq and Syria or the celebrations of the fall of The Berlin Wall. We’ve presented a good number of works around these topics already, but there’s always room for more quality visual depictions, specially when they come from some of the top graphics desks in the media industry.

We’ve been also noticing an increasing number of interactive visualizations – including maps – tackling environmental issues. Here you’ll find a couple of those as well, like The Guardian’s visual depiction of how the world uses coal, together with more than 30 recent interactive maps published recently.

Here are the all the picks of the week:
