The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Welcome back to the 79th 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 wintery weather, social inequality, and inflation.
Extreme cold gripped the North of Asia last week, bringing record low temperatures and snowfall to Russia, China, and Japan.
In the United States, snowfall covered the mountains of California but many cities including New York have seen less snow than usual. How does this year’s snowfall compare to the average winter season in your city?
Looking back at the weather patterns of the last few years, 2022 stands out for yet another reason — the changes in lightning strikes. Similar to record temperatures and storms, these shifts also signal a changing climate.
And seven states along the shrinking Colorado river might soon face cuts to their water supply.
In Europe, new data on household income shows a wealth divide in — and among — German cities, while the majority of the U.K. struggles to level up along with London.
Inflation has reached European sugar aisles, and consumers in the U.S. are spending less.
Surprisingly, there are far more jobs available in the U.S. labor market than there are workers.
Other issues in the United States include flight cancellations, access to abortion pills, and the growing number of mass shootings.
And more notable charts and maps of the week cover, among others, the changing routes of oil shipments, train delays in Germany, flocks of birds in Rome, and the birthday of São Paulo.
