Effective Visualizations of Information on Pandemic, Climate, Happiness, Travel Time — DataViz WeeklyJuly 30th, 2021 by AnyChart Team
Data becomes easier to perceive and draw insights from when it is properly represented in charts and maps. For everyone interested to check out how information visualization works, we continue our regular feature DataViz Weekly curating the best new examples of effective graphics. Here are our latest picks:

To make the article especially thrilling for you to read and learn from, I decided to showcase a practical application of a line chart to real-world data. The month of June was celebrated as Pride Month, and I thought it would be great to see how attitudes toward LGBT people have changed over the recent years. Then I found interesting public opinion data from the General Social Survey (GSS), a project of the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago, which appeared to be a good fit, and took part of it to visualize in this guide.
So, follow along with the tutorial and you will also be able to explore the shifts in acceptance of same-sex relationships in the United States over the last two decades! We will create a single-series JS line chart first, representing the general trend, and then a multi-series JS line chart to visualize a breakdown by age group.

A step-by-step tutorial showing how to create an interactive JS Flow Map. Illustrated by visualizing data on migration to the US.
In these difficult times of the pandemic, there is a lot of confusion and concern about the immigration status of people around the globe. I decided to take a look at the immigration data of the US which has more migrants than any other country in the world. Here, I explore where these immigrants come from and represent the top 15 countries that contributed the highest number of migrants to the US in the year 2019.
A flow map seems the perfect way to showcase the inflow of migrants into the United States from various countries. Before going further, let me give you a brief idea about a flow map and its uses.
