Digital Cartography [133]

Online maps used to explain the #PanamaPapers, and more

April 6, 2016

This week, we’ve been dedicating a good portion of our round ups to the Panama Papers, a giant leak of more than 11.5 million financial and legal records that exposed a system that enables crime, corruption and wrongdoing, hidden by secretive offshore companies. The investigation took a year, involving 400 journalists from more than two dozen countries. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ, coordinated this massive journalistic effort, resulting in dozens of breaking news stories that are still being published on a daily basis.

After sharing yesterday, some of the video explaining the Panama Papers and its implications, today’s Digital Cartography opens with interactive maps that accompanied the stories of fraud, corruption and tax evasion. We have a lot more examples, of course, so, without further ado, here are the online picks of the week:
