What you get
The data goes back to 1960 and up to the most current estimates for 2009. Each line represents a country.
Due to budget cuts, there is no plan for an updated atlas. So I recreated the original 1870 Atlas using today’s publicly available data.
These are my picks for the best of 2015. As usual, they could easily appear in a different order on a different day, and there are projects not on the list that were also excellent.
It’s always tough to pick my favorite visualization projects. Nevertheless, I gave it a go.
