There are some news, most of them sad, that requires losts of information and a continous coverage for the readers. Cyclone Nargis and the China earthqueake of this week has been two of these ones. And graphics are a must on these coverages about natural disasters. This is how some of the best infographics departments have dealt with the new on the web. It's not all that exists, but all that I, as user, have found.
I'm on my holidays at the moment, travelling, so I'm having problems to see how has it been explained on the prnt editions, if anyone has any example, please sent it to me
Has it own special section. We have an very complete interactive feature showing path of the cyclone, population affected, flooded areas, after and before satellite images... A very complete information. But we can't expect less from NYT. It also offers another interactive map with more satellite images.
I couldn't find a special section for this new. And all the graphic content I found (photos and videos apart, of course), was a map locating photos and the strenght of the earthquake. This time, and taking the risk of being punished by Gods, I must say I expected some more from NYT. God save my soul for this sin...
The Guardian has also its own special section about the cylone including an interactive feature. Maybe not so sthetically smart as the one from NYT, but with very useful information, which is the really important thing. It also includes a link to other graphic about how hurricanes work.
Also with special section, but with interactive guide, also locating photos and strength, but with an intereseting details: it's focused on destroyed schools, and that's it's a little but important plus.
No special, but with online graphic, althugh it just show the complete path and links to videos, photos, and articles.
I couldn't find any graphic, special or multimedia content apart from videos on the web.
No specials, apart of one about the political situation in Myanmar. No online graphics found.
An online graphic show the location, the tectonic plaques on the zone, a map of the strenght and the population affected.
