The disciplines of Cartography, Data Visualization, Information Design, Graphic Journalism, Digital Art, Alternative Storytelling and Geography Education come together in this series of more than 28 infographic world maps. The Data Atlas of the World has been created using Adobe Illustrator for visualization and Microsoft Excel for analysis. Emphasizing design and cartography principles instead of algorithms and automation, all countries, labels and graphic details have been placed and refined to maximize visual understanding and accuracy. The goal is to resonate with a wide audience that includes use within K-12 Social Studies curriculum, higher education research, social impact advocacy, and the public at large to help understand the complex world in which we all live and share. All content has been produced by Carrie Osgood, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated visual data journalist, creative communications strategist and university art & design faculty. Carrie has created customized work for major international organizations including the United Nations, the Associated Press, Columbia University's Earth Institute, the Guardian and Interbrand.
