Latest project: Visualizing fact-checks

The latest project in the ongoing collaboration between the Google News Initiative and several designers and studios is this large visualization for Poynter's International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). It shows nearly 4,000 fact-checks from more than 70 countries.

The graphics were designed by Polygraph, mainly by Amelia Wattenberger (don't miss her book about D3.js.) The project has two parts: the interactive visualizations themselves and a searchable database.

My role, as always, was limited to offering suggestions and feedback.

You can see other projects in collaboration with many other designers here.
