Every Monday, as all of you that follow regularly our posts know, is usually dedicated to vintage data visualization. And what does that have to do with today’s Interactive Inspiration? Well, in one of the most recent round ups of old maps, charts and infographics, we shared a couple of examples collected from Vintage Visualizations, a project of the Brooklyn Brainery in which they reproduced a number of the Library of Congress‘ Civil War-era data visualizations in high-quality poster prints, and made them available for purchase.
And soon after we publish that article, data visualization expert Jim Vallandingham (@vlandham) told us on Twitter that he had produced an interactive version of one of those vintage charts, as a side project. Jim shared the making of that visualization in Bocoup’s blog, and check out his website for some fantastic visualization experiments and tutorials.
We open out Interactive Inspiration with that interactive visualization, followed by the usual list of projects published recently.
