Interactive visualizations of 2014 - part II

The second part of our favorite online data visualizations of 2014

January 2, 2015

Happy 2015, everyone!! Things are yet a bit too slow, today being a Friday and all, so we’ll just keep it simple and straight to the point. You’re about to browse through the remaining 50 interactive visualizations and multimedia specials that caught our eye during 2014, and in case you haven’t read the first part of this post, we strongly recommend you do, to understand a bit better the context in which this selection was made.

Also, in addition to the ‘Best of 2014″ links we recommended last week, a few more that came to our attention, like this one by WIRED, and specially the ones by the New York Times and the Washington Post. Both high quality and overwhelming, so save some time for that journey.

But before that, enjoy the second part of our favorite interactive visualizations of 2014, again listed in no particular order:
