The best of last week’s big and small data visualizations
Welcome back to the 87th 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 weather patterns and the economy.
For the third time this month, we begin the Dispatch with a spring-themed data visualization, this time showing the four blooming stages of cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C.
Meanwhile, in the West of the United States, California braces for another storm.
Since 2020, the U.K. has shifted away from coal-fueled electricity. On the other hand, deforestation forecasts for the Amazon are far from optimistic.
Russia continues to trade and cooperate with China, a country predicted to face the challenges of an aging population.
The global economy struggles on multiple fronts, from bank failures to inflation and layoffs.
And finally, let’s take a look at life expectancy at retirement and the ages of current world leaders.
Other notable charts of the week covered, among other themes, same-sex relationships in Africa, a day in the West Bank, or users’ choices on mobile dating apps.
