Interactive Inspiration [121]

Data visualizations published recently by news outlets and other organizations

February 20, 2015

Time to explore the latest data visualizations that came to our way, both from the media industry and other publishers. We’ll begin with our top highlights, followed by the usual selection of projects that were sent to us. We always like to remind you that if you want to share the work your graphic department or agency is doing, just send us a message, and well be happy to feature it.

Now, here are the highlights of the week:

Nine Charts about Wealth Inequality in America | Urban Institute

This is a set of nine interactive charts illustrating how income inequality, earnings gaps, home ownership rates, retirement savings, student loan debt, and lopsided asset-building subsidies have contributed to the growing wealth disparities in the Unites States. Another great work from the Urban Institute.

Monarchy in the UK | Peter Gilks

And it’s not often we show a visualization made with Tableau Public in the highlight section of these posts, but this is a worthy one. Tableau Zen Master Peter Gilks teamed up with Dan Miller to create this impressive visual showing the Kings and Queens of England throughout history.
