The second part of our list with cartographic projects that you must explore

December 16, 2015

What a great treat we have for all of those interested in visualization and map-making, in this second part of our list with 100 outstanding interactive maps of 2015. Looking back at all the projects we featured week after week, and knowing that we’re leaving out so many that could easily be part of such a selection, we couldn’t be more excited for the year ahead.

This is also our final week of the year (articles-wise, we’ll continue with full support to our gallery even during the holidays), so we’d like to thank you all for the audience, specially those that follow our “Digital Cartography” updates, every Wednesday. We really appreciate it, and hopefully we were able to help you keeping track of what’s being done in the data visualization world,.
