The Presidential debates already started in the U.S. and for many voters, this is when the campaign really starts. But most of the newspapers and online news portals have been working on this topic for several months now. Between articles, expert opinions and analysis, the volume of information about the Democrat and Republican races is so vast that it’s almost impossible to follow through all of them.
And that’s where data visualization resources come into action. We at Visual Loop prepared a compilation of those resources, filled with graphics, maps and other tools, and we decided to pick ten interactive infographics that are simply outstanding, either by the way they present the data, the aesthetics or the originality.
