Because last week we dedicated this space to the finalists of the Data Journalism Awards, today’s post is overwhelming, with a huge selection of interactive visualizations and specials that were published in the past couple of weeks.
As usual, we kick-off with our top highlights:

Opening the highlights section, Gregor Aisch and Karen Yourish present this visual analysis about how the teams behind some likely and announced Presidential candidates are connected to previous campaigns, administrations and organizations close to the possible nominees.

Another regular presence in this highlights section, The Washington Post released this online visualization about the growth over time of the D.C. Metro, signed by Alberto Cuadra and Denise Lu.
China’s overseas investments | South China Morning Post
Finally, this interactive visualization by the South China Morning Post’s Alberto Lucas López and Cédric Sam, summarizing all the overseas mergers and acquisitions with a value above US$100 million that Chinese companies attempted from 2005 to the first half of last year. Hover or point to see details on different deals, such as the Chinese company involved, amount of the deal and name of the partner in the host country of the deal
