Our final post of 2015 is a feast of data visualizations and interactive infographics

December 18, 2015

We’re almost done for the year, and to close the series with our favorite maps, infographics and visualizations of 2015, here’s the second part of the 100 great interactive visualizations, chosen among the hundreds we brought to you every week. In case you missed, here are the posts published so far, with the 2015 highlights:

  • 100 outstanding interactive maps of 2015 – part 1 and 2
  • 100 print infographics that summarize 2015 – part 1 and 2
  • 100 great interactive visualizations of 2015 – part 1

We’ll continue revisiting the interactive production of 2015 when we get back from a short holiday break, giving particular attention to the projects created around the refugee crisis, public health issues and the environment.

For now, we hope you saved some time to explore these 50 great interactive visualizations, produced throughout the year by newsrooms and independent designers.
