Examples of interactive journalism – Week 15

As always, add your own example for extra credit by providing a link in a reply to this post. (You still have one more chance to post, in Week 16.)

This week’s example — Time 100: The Most Influential People in the World in 2014 — was designed by students in a Communication and Multimedia Design course at a university in the Netherlands. Spend some time clicking on people and then returning to the grid. Do you have ideas for how this might be improved?

  1. My example is from The New York Times: “Mapping Poverty in America”
    http://www.nytimes.com/newsgraphics/2014/01/05/poverty-map/?ref=multimedia

    Some of the interactive elements this project has includes being able to move the cursor over the map and see the poverty percentage. One can also view the number living in poverty throughout the U.S. by indicating so on the right-hand side of the browser. The data is not distorted when decreasing the browser size.

  2. That’s a nice example of a Google map with data for each county, Daniela. I like the view for “number” more than the one for “percentage” because you can really see the centers of poverty in the former view.
