Information is Beautiful Awards 2019

Here are just two examples from this year's shortlist to whet your apetite for dataviz.

'Commute' is an immersive experience created by taking sound data from the Paris Metro system. This 'sound-print' lets you both see and hear the noise that surrounds commuters by combining data visualisation and data sonification. An algorithm matches the sounds with harmonic frequencies, generating harmonious melodies. This piece adds an interesting dimension to traditional infographics by introducing an auditory aspect.

'Why do cats and dogs' is a visualisation of the most common questions asked on Google in relation to the often mysterious behaviour of cats and dogs. Both insightful and amusing, these interactive visuals will help you undertand that you are not alone in your pet mystification.
