In 2015, we continued using visual storytelling to share Urban’s research in compelling and creative ways. Through data visualizations, we communicated complex information in a glance. Our calculators and interactive maps gave users a way to find themselves and their stories in the data. And our photo essays put a human face on our findings. Here are a few of our favorite projects from the past year.
