Data journalism usually relies on data visualisations and interactive graphics to convey information and stories. Read 24 questions about data journalism post on the Online Journalism blog to know more about it.
Not only newsrooms are using these visualisations to share information, but also creative agencies or companies. I have gathered 5 good examples from outside the newsroom to learn and interact:
1. The Refugee Project
Interactive map designed by Hyperakt, Ekene Ijeoma (Desktop Development) and Oak (Mobile Development) about the refugees migrations since 1975. It includes historical explanations to some large movements and events to contextualise them.
2. Left Behind
Interactive website designed by FFunction for UNESCO about the girls’ education in Africa. It analyses schools’ conditions and how a lack of quality education jeopardizes their future.
Data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, Montreal.
3. Fans on the Move
Interactive website created by Elkano Data for Ticketbis about the number of people across the planet travelling to attend the biggest events.
Data from the popular events for the last three years taken from Ticketbis internal data along with data from partners within the ticketing sector.
4. A day in the Life of Americans
From the American Time Use Survey data from 2014, Nathan Yau explores a person’s entire day patterns. After displaying the data as an interactive visualisation, Nathan depicts the main trends in the morning, the lunch time, getting off work and before going to bed.
5. The Fallen of World War II
Interactive or data-driven documentary made by Neil Halloran about the human costs of the second World War. It compares these numbers to other wars and conflicts in history.
