Digital Cartography [141]

Showcase of amazing interactive maps from around the world

January 18, 2017

As we resume our regular activities here on Visualoop, after a short holiday break, it’s time to check out the latest interactive and digital maps that caught our attention, from publishers and data designers around the wold. No surprise: We have a great selection in this fist installment of Digital Cartography, including many inspiring projects launched in the last weeks of 2016.

The array of topics is quite vast, as it normally is in these round ups, so you’ll surely come across something worth your time, among the 30+ examples we gathered.

We really hope you enjoy it!!
