Periscopic have just released a very fine interactive infographic on the details and sheer numbers of gun murders in the USA. It balances numbers with stories and aesthetic impact. And, a bit like my favourite visualisation of 2012, the video by CarbonVisuals, it is quite scary when it suddenly accelerates. There are lots of options for exploring the data too – a very nice piece of work, and it is worth reading their comments on the experience of making it.
