Digital Cartography [120]

Don't miss this week's selection of interactive maps

November 25, 2015

For several times, in this same space (but not only), we featured the work being done by the interactive team of the German regional newspaper Berliner Morgenpost.

The interactive team was established in 2014, consisting of a data journalist, a video journalist, two web developers and a designer. They look to find exclusive stories in their own databases, use new research methods and produce interactive visualizations and multimedia stories that take full advantage of the strengths of the web.

We are very proud to have this team also present in our community – you can check out their profile here -, and they recently released a special gallery with some of their most memorable works about the city of Berlin. When put together, these maps tell the story of Germany’s capital through the visual analysis of issues such as politics, economy, immigration, criminality and sports, just to name a few. Worth exploring.

Now, here are the interactive maps of the week:
