Who doesn’t love democracy? This very cool interactive is one of the best examples of how an intuitive interface transcends language. It’s in French. Try it anyway. You can compare how seven different countries treat democracy (ranging from the U.S. to Morocco) along a handful of measures such as how long leaders have been in power, how many citizens have access to the internet and social media, etc. What’s really cool is that you have a very different user experience when you view one country versus comparing two. And they both work. When we think of data visualization, this is one of the best examples that I’ve ever seen that doesn’t shy away from presenting complex data, but does so in a way that is accessible, immersive and richly rewarding. Makes me want to learn French, kind of. Props to infosthetics.com for posting this last month.
