How do Americans spend their days?

One of my favorite data graphics is an interactive piece by The New York Times that shows how Americans spend their day, based on the American Time  Use Survey (ATUS). I’ve also been wanting to play with Mike Bostock’s Data-Driven Documents, or D3 for short, for a while now. So put the two together, and this is what I got.

Core77 Design Award 2011: Lit, Student Winner for Interactive/Web/Mobile

Lit.

Lit is a tool for location-based literary research that enables users to explore books by locations contained in them on a multi-touch table. The system displays all the locations in any given book by little points on the map. Curved lines connect these to a scrollable ring, which represents the book.

Visualizing ten years of violence against journalists in Afghanistan
Via MediaShift:

Internews and Nai, an Afghan media advocacy organization, have collected hundreds of reports of threats, intimidation, and violence faced by journalists in Afghanistan. We recently announced a new site, data.nai.org.af, which features 10 years of these reports. While Nai’s data previously resided in spreadsheets, the new site allows the public to access hundreds of reports through visualizations and to download it directly. With this site we’re raising the profile of media freedom in a country often characterized as among the most dangerous in the world for journalists.

Take, for example, the case of Omaid Khpalwak, a reporter with Pajhwok Afghan News who died recently in an attack on Tarin Kot, capital of Uruzgan.
Freelance journalists are among the top five groups experiencing violence. The others are formal news organizations.
For data wranglers, Internews and Nai are releasing the data in .csv and .geoJSON formats.
You can explore the infographic and export the data here.

 The Go-to Snacks of Literary Greats

I’m not the squealing type, but couldn’t help but let out a delighted squeak at the sight of this illustration of famous writers’ favorite snacks by Wendy MacNaughton for the New York Times. MacNaughton  confesses to munching on garlic croutons as she works, which I can  totally get behind. Personally, I go for Red Vines.
