Best Data Visualization Projects of 2016.
Visualization continues its merging into the everyday — less standalone and more of a medium that blends with words. I think this is partially because of a concentration on mobile. There’s simply less visual space on a phone than there is a giant computer screen, so the visualization is stripped or split up into smaller pieces that are more easily digested while scrolling.

I am sure though that there were a lot of good projects this year. Below are my favorites in no particular order.
