2010 Global Migration – Double Paper Pie Chart

An interactive/hand-made paper pie chart about The 2010 Global Emigration and Immigration.

How to play: drag the sliders. Go to the end of the sliders to exit and be able to explore another slider, or when you see the >> marks, go there and explore further.

The visualization presents the 2010 global emigration and immigration, by showing the top 30 countries by the number of emigrants/immigrants, and all the rest of the world grouped by geographic regions, and shows where and how many people are migrating for each of these countries/regions.

It is also a work about data visualization in general, as I was exploring the relationships between different type of graphs, and how the information can flow, naturally, from one type of graph to another, in this case, from a flow diagram into 2 pie charts. To emphasize this, I chose to make it in traditional media (paint and paper); Then I had to bring it back into the digital world and program the interaction, so you can see it.

Enjoy exploring :)

Stock Check – the world’s non-renewable resources

My entry for the Information is Beautiful Awards – First Challange, a visualization about the world’s non-renewable resources – how long might they last?

Switch the buttons “Grows” and “doesn’t grow” to view the estimates of years ramaining for these minerals and fuels, if the production continues to grow at the rate it grew in the past 10 years; and what difference would make if we were not going to increase the production.

Data viz: Global Life Expectancy

A new data visualization I made. Life expectancy for people born in 1990, 2000 and 2006 in various countries over the world, each continent’s highest and lowest life expectancy. First graph is a view through the 1990s – 2090s timeline, while the second one shows the same data, viewed by age. And a graph showing the increase/ decrease life expectancy patterns for those countries.

The data comes from visualizing.org a new data viz online platform that launches today (1st Oct. 2010) at the Cooper Hewitt Design Conference in New York (live stream, the gallery of data visualizations is @2pm EST (9pm Romanian time)).
Here is a link to the Data set.
