2015: Urban's year in visual storytelling

December 28, 2015

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.
