Digital Cartography [90]

Catching up with the latest interactive maps published online

March 4, 2015

Among our highlights of the week, two works from The New York Times‘ graphics desk, both tackling major issues that have been all over the news for the past 12 months: the Ebola outbreak and the escalating violence in Syria and Iraq.

The Times continues to be a dominant force among all newsrooms – just look at the latest SND’s Best of Digital Design, but we should all be paying attention to the increasing quality of The Guardian’s interactive maps and visualizations – much of which has probably a lot to do with the influence of Aron Pilhofer, hired last year has the newspaper’s executive editor of digital.

We’ll probably see a lot of quality works from these two publications being rewarded in a couple of weeks, at Malofiej 23 – and if you’re planning to attend this event, let us know, and perhaps we’ll meet there.
