Digital Cartography [2]

Another selection of freshly released interactive maps

May 8, 2013

The topics featured in this second edition of Digital Cartography range from the local elections in England and Wales to the visualization of YouTube trends and Wikipedia changes in real time. Environmental issues are also dynamically illustrated in a couple of these maps, and if you like cycling there’s even a stage-by-stage guide to the Giro.

Also, we would like to thank you all for the nice feedback about this new series of regular posts – with rumors that Google will updated Google Maps soon, it’s only fair to expect even more creative interactive maps, and we intend to bring you the best of them every Wednesday.

Like we said in the previous post, feel free to send us the links for your woks, and we’ll be sure to feature it here in this space.

Now, here are this week’s featured maps:
