The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Welcome back to the 71st 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 the U.S. Senate runoff election in Georgia, the eruption of Mauna Loa in Hawaii, the cost of living crisis, and the final days of the #30DayMapChallenge.
Today Georgia will cast its votes in the long-awaited runoff election for the U.S. Senate.
The eruption of Mauna Loa, a volcano in Hawaii, drew the attention of scientists, journalists, and tourists alike.
The sports betting lobby is a hot topic in both the U.K. and the U.S.
The cost of living crisis reveals differences between cities, countries, and even generations.
Air pollution might be a contributing factor in depression and suicide rates, already an important issue among young people in Belgium and white men in the U.S.
Other charts of the week covered China’s Twitter diplomacy, population trends in Spain, the proportion of male and female scientists around the world, and a surprising link between coronavirus cases and negative candle reviews.
Finally, it’s time to wrap up the #30DayMapChallenge.
