Two years until the D-Day. Let's see how the infographics departments on the different newspapers did.
I start with Spain, as it's where I write this blog, and the pages are more accessible for me.
The biggest spanish newspaper offered this double spread graphic (at half height). Adding to this, they had a 1-column graphic with the progressive closings.
It ha dtwo graphics: the proportional map with a big table and othe with several statistichal data.
The general one.
And along with it, thet text about the swing states had a shape and the results of each.
On the next page, Congress and Senate.
Map, participation and who won the elections last times on the states that this year are democrats.
And result of Congress and Senate.
Frontpage La Vanguardia. I just can give a big applause for the idea, and express my dellusion for the non-proportional data and forgetting the 'others' on charts.
Our idea was to give the reader all the data he would need to make his own analysis. So we tried with this double spread.
And now, abroad...
