Data & Visualisation

China Explained

If you have any interest in the history and politics of China (you should), the Reuters Connected China app is absolutely amazing. It’s basically a bunch of very well-annotated interactive data visualizations combined with a beautiful China 101.

Divided into 5 areas, the social power visualization is particularly interesting, and it is easy to see some important connections between coalitions.

Designed by Fathom, it’s no surprise that it is both useful and beautiful, so do give it a spin.

I'm pretty much in love with a data. Or, the knowledge we can extract from it. Or, rather, the better decisions that can be made based on said knowledge.

I hold a M.Sc in Sociology a MA in Historical Social Enquiry (Social History + Historical Sociology + Global Development), and work as Information Management Lead at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. I guess you can call me a Computational Sociologist of Global Development and Humanitarian Action. No less.

That's pretty much it, really.
