Information Visualization Techniques in Action on Democracy, Covid-19, Inequality & Gerrymandering — DataViz WeeklyJune 26th, 2020 by AnyChart Team
DataViz Weekly is here exhibiting new interesting projects from around the web that demonstrate a great use of different information visualization techniques to deliver better insight. See our new picks:
- Democracy Perception Index 2020 — Dalia
- Government reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic — Bloomberg News

The COVID-19 pandemic persists as a global emergency, and we continue to support initiatives that contribute to tackling the coronavirus crisis. Specifically, we allow COVID-19 analytics projects to use our data visualization tools for free under a non-profit license.
We asked Juergen a few questions to learn more about this project and his experience visualizing COVID-19 pandemic data with the help of AnyChart. Read the answers and take a glance at several quick chart examples from his website. (Stack: HTML/CSV.)
In data visualization, theory is very important but practice is absolutely everything. We continue to share with you some of the new charting best practices we’ve come across around the web so you could see what others do and keep improving. Check out how various experienced data visualization professionals make data speak and tell insightful stories, in DataViz Weekly.
Today, we are happy to meet you with the following new interesting projects:
- Black Lives Matter and racial disparities in America, in 25 charts — Business Insider
- The Economist’s forecast model for the 2020 U.S. presidential election — The Economist

Hey everyone! Here’s DataViz Weekly with a quick presentation of four new data graphics projects that we’ve found worth checking out. Look at these stunning examples of charts and maps in action!
- Areas with the humanity’s lowest impact on the natural world — National Geographic
- COVID-19 in Austria (and worldwide) — Jürgen Höfer
- Age of buildings in Saint Petersburg (Russia) — Nikita Slavin
- Chronic health conditions by income and race — NYT
To demonstrate this way, which is quite simple to master even if you only have basic HTML coding skills, I am going to visualize official data about the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy. The visualizations built along the tutorial will display how the numbers of cases, recoveries, and deaths have been changing — from January 31, when the first two cases were confirmed, to yesterday, June 9, when the total number of coronavirus cases in Italy reached 235,561.
