Interactive Inspiration [162]

The #PanamaPapers in online storytelling, plus other recent examples of interactive data visualization

April 8, 2016

Another one of those weeks for online data visualization – and we’re not talking just about the Panama Papers and all the graphics and maps created around what has already been considered the largest leak/hack in modern data journalism. You’ll see them here, of course – and by the way, Jonathan Gray has been collecting more examples in this thread. If it wasnt’ for this topic, we would surely be giving more attention to the new data portal of the US, a great job by Deloitte, Macro Connections at the MIT Media Lab, and Datawheel. Certainly an example for other nations to follow.

Several long form multimedia narratives also caught our attention, from the likes of The Wall Street Journal, Fusion and Univision Noticias, and Pakistan’s The Express Tribune. And you’ll see other topics explained in interactive fashion, like, healthcare, sports and entertainment, as well.

Here are the interactive highlights of the week:
