Sharing the latest data journalism project (in Swedish) I have been working on with @cristinapoiata and the team at datastory.se.

After analysing 500,000 articles for country mentions we put together a case study of three underreported countries:
datastory.se/story/tre-underbe

We also put together the full country index, so check it out here:
datastory.se/story/medieskugga

The globes were created using react-simple-maps.io and we used patientslikeme.github.io/react for the calendar heat maps.

A new version of react-simple-maps.io/ is out (v.0.11), and we added some really cool new stuff:

โ€” AlbersUSA projection is now properly supported so bring on those US ! Example here:
github.com/zcreativelabs/react

โ€” With the new ZoomableGlobe component you can now easily create interactive SVG globes. Example here:
github.com/zcreativelabs/react vis.social/media/hRIBYQ6OVsA7x

Make sure to check it out!

If you like it or if you have suggestions/issues etc. let me know. Always looking for feedback ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Having some serious fun with beta.observablehq.com right now! ๐Ÿ˜ป


Hi there.๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm the co-founder of zcreativelabs.com a small web development and data visualisation studio based in Switzerland.
