Interactive Inspiration [119]

Dynamic data visualizations and infographics covering breaking news and events

February 9, 2015

Our regular outlook of interactive data visualizations published across the Internet comes filled with interesting projects, from the top graphic desks and infographic departments of the print industry, alongside with the ones coming from other online publishers.

We begin with the highlights of the week:

Watch how the measles outbreak spreads when kids get vaccinated – and when they don’t | The Guardian

More than 100 cases of measles across 14 states and Washington DC have been confirmed by US health officials since an outbreak began at Disneyland last December. With a majority of those infections in unvaccinated people, widespread blame – from Washington to the rest of the world – has fallen on parents who chose not to vaccinate their children.

This visualization shows 10 hypothetical communities with different vaccination rates, and just how important high rates of immunization can be to protect everyone against measles. If you run the simulation enough times, only very highly vaccinated groups are able to consistently block measles infection from their community.

Shadow prisons | Fusion

A Fusion investigation found that without a single vote in Congress, officials across three administrations: created a new classification of federal prisons only for immigrants; decided that private companies would run the facilities; and filled them by changing immigration enforcement practices.

Most of the roughly 23,000 immigrants held each night in CAR prisons have committed immigration infractions — crimes that a decade ago would have resulted in little more than a bus trip back home. And now, some of the very same officials who oversaw agencies that created and fueled the system have gone on to work for the private prison companies that benefited most.
