Award Winning Interactive Map: The World of Rivers
The annual Malofiej awards, for top graphics in journalism, were handed out last week. The best map of 2010 went to National Geographic for the World of Rivers. Every river system in the world was mapped and scaled by annual discharge.
Showing everything doesn’t always work with so much data, but it does in this case. It reminds me of Ben Fry’s All Streets. See the full-sized interactive version on National Geographic.
The World of River is Part of The World’s Freshwater Collection of Animated Maps
