Visual Statistics in Data Visualization Weekly: July 26, 2019 — August 2, 2019
Fast & Furious Statistics
“Hobbs & Shaw,” the first-ever official “Fast & Furious” spinoff, was theatrically released in the United States earlier today, August 2. Before it hit American theaters, Bloomberg had scrupulously analyzed all eight movies of the main series in order to monitor how they had evolved. According to the authors, they’d “counted just about everything that could be turned into a meaningful metric to find out who inflicts the most pain and kicks the most ass.”
Take a look at yesterday’s cool visual story on Bloomberg with plenty of interesting statistics and charts showing the number of hugs, Corona sips, punches, smiles, minutes spent racing, and many other things changing from movie to movie.
Internet Users Worldwide by Region
The World Bank published an interactive dashboard that visualizes 53 social, economic, and geographic indicators across 401 districts in Afghanistan, according to 2016 data from public and private sources. The project also includes a province-level time-series visualization that displays socio-economic trends for 34 provinces between 2007 and 2016.

Satellites Imaging Earth Every Day
Data visualization designer Nadieh Bremer made another awesome visualization. Commissioned by Planet, a private Earth imaging company based in California, her new project shows how Planet’s army of more than 150 satellites currently in orbit are creating an image of the entire Earth during one single day.
Look how they move and how the photos they capture slowly build up our planet. Don’t miss out on watching the blue circle following a random satellite during every several seconds, accompanied by the information about its location, height, and speed.
Thanks for your attention. Have a great weekend time. We’ll show you more examples of new cool visual statistics next Friday.
