The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Welcome back to the 72nd edition of Data Vis Dispatch! Every week, we’ll be publishing a collection of the best small and large data visualizations we find, especially from news organizations — to celebrate data journalism, data visualization, simple charts, elaborate maps, and their creators.
Recurring topics this week include biodiversity, energy, and the FIFA World Cup.
One week into the United Nations Biodiversity Conference, conservation of species has generated headlines and stunning data visualizations, including a series of visual stories produced by Reuters.
Good news on the energy front: renewable energy should overtake coal by 2025 and government subsidies are likely to save lives in Europe.
The FIFA World Cup in Qatar is nearing the finals, scheduled for this Sunday. Visual analyses cover democracy scores of organizing countries, past performances of national teams and players, and the duration of the games.
The United Kingdom is expecting strikes in the next few weeks.
Other notable charts of the week covered unreported shootings in the U.S., low numbers of doctors in Africa, urban green spaces in Asia, modeled coronavirus scenarios in China, and the reach of North Korea’s missiles.
