Even if you don't speak German, have a look at that beauty by @zeitonline@twitter.com: zeit.de/politik/deutschland/20

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: blog.datawrapper.de/locatormap Thanks to @nytgraphics@twitter.com, @ReutersGraphics@twitter.com, @washingtonpost@twitter.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 @rcbregman@twitter.com's book for the original.) blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychar

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: notes.datawrapper.de/p/bookclu

"It’s so much easier to do more than it is to do less." – What a great new episode of the PolicyViz podcast! policyviz.com/podcast/episode- @jschwabish asks all the right questions and @LazaroGamio says all the smart things. And designs awesome visualizations for @axios like this one:

"My paintings translate words into visual language." So much great data art & inspiration in the paintings by Leslie Roberts: leslierobertsart.com/section/4 via @MrPrudence@twitter.com

Scrolling down in @13pt@twitter.com's "NASA’s Opportunity Rover Dies on Mars" is a great, great joy. I remain a big fan of longer-than-wide maps: nytimes.com/interactive/2019/0

So @DavidKokkelink@twitter.com just showed me a site called @tradingview@twitter.com ("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 (tradingview.com/chart/USDCHF/7), and this just made my day.

Very excited to give a talk at the @UNGeneva@twitter.com today, for their event "Designed for Science - Complex Ideas in Clear Focus": reg.unog.ch/event/28009/ If you're in town, come by! It's free and you can still register

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. stephanango.com/design-is-comp

I'm fascinated by looong scrollytelling maps, like this one by @PostGraphics@twitter.com: washingtonpost.com/graphics/na. So I made a map of Chile with our new tooltips ...although when on mobile, they work better with shorter (aka normal) maps: blog.datawrapper.de/weeklychar

I truly like the series by @ktzhuTo@twitter.com: instagram.com/explore/tags/100 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.

Drawing lines between the centroids of almost all US states.
(It's a small part of a bigger project I've been working on today.)

@gka and I want to convince you to never use diverging stacked bars ever again (with or without neutrals). We wonder what you think about our arguments: blog.datawrapper.de/divergingb
