Even if you don't speak German, have a look at that #dataviz beauty by @email@example.com: https://www.zeit.de/politik/deutschland/2019-05/ost-west-wanderung-abwanderung-ostdeutschland-umzug
It has everything:
😍 animated maps with annotation
😍 small multiples
😍 zoomed in line charts
😍 beautiful dot circles
The best interactive story I've seen lately.
I had some fun looking for examples of callout lines in news graphics for a new post: https://blog.datawrapper.de/locatormap-calloutlines/ Thanks to @firstname.lastname@example.org, @ReutersGraphics@twitter.com, @email@example.com graphics team and especially @BBGVisualData@twitter.com for using so many great swoopy & straight lines pointing to things!
That was a fun chart to make in @Datawrapper@twitter.com! (Kudos to @firstname.lastname@example.org's book for the original.) https://blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychart-two-charts-one-scatterplot/
Yesterday's Data Vis Book Club (@datavisclub) about RJ Andrews' "Info We Trust" was really fun. Thanks to @infowetrust for answering our questions, and to everyone who participated in the discussion! It's all preserved here: https://notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclub-infowetrust
"It’s so much easier to do more than it is to do less." – What a great new episode of the PolicyViz podcast! https://policyviz.com/podcast/episode-147-lazaro-gamio/ @jschwabish asks all the right questions and @LazaroGamio says all the smart things. And designs awesome visualizations for @axios like this one:

This whole article by @TmarcoH & @pabloroblesg by @SCMPgraphics is packed with great #dataviz, but the projection of this map is something else. Wow. https://multimedia.scmp.com/news/world/article/3000839/permafrost/?src=app
A calm, inspirational blog post by @lennymartinezd: https://makeinformationuseful.wordpress.com/2019/02/13/building-understanding-of-the-world/ I like blog posts like this one.
"My paintings translate words into visual language." So much great data art & #dataviz inspiration in the paintings by Leslie Roberts: https://leslierobertsart.com/section/425019-Paintings-2016-18.html via @MrPrudence@twitter.com
Scrolling down in @email@example.com's "NASA’s Opportunity Rover Dies on Mars" is a great, great joy. I remain a big fan of longer-than-wide maps: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/02/13/science/opportunity-rover-mars-map.html
So @DavidKokkelink@twitter.com just showed me a site called @firstname.lastname@example.org ("millions of traders chart-speak every day"), which has a lot of fascinating chart designs already – but then they are people who create art with it (https://www.tradingview.com/chart/USDCHF/7FkdCzr4-range/), and this just made my day.
These are really nice charts & maps by @email@example.com: https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2018-china-superpower/ None of them are interactive. All of them are awesome.
I agree. Having one clear message in an article/data vis/talk is often more effective than communicating aaall the things that are important to you. http://stephanango.com/design-is-compromise
I'm fascinated by looong scrollytelling maps, like this one by @PostGraphics@twitter.com: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/mapping-the-2017-eclipse/. So I made a map of Chile with our new tooltips ...although when on mobile, they work better with shorter (aka normal) maps: https://blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychart-locatormaps-tooltips/
I truly like the #100daysofandnotor series by @ktzhuTo@twitter.com: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/100daysofandnotor/ It shows how often we feel like we need to put ourselves in boxes, to feel like we make "sense". And that it's really not necessary to do so.
Creating & writing about dataviz for Datawrapper. Data Vis Book Club organizer. Fan of numbers, systems & overviews. I believe in maps, not the territory.
