Information Visualization Award for Digital Divide interactive

An interactive information visualization based on our data was shortlisted for the award from "Information is Beautiful"

The unstoppable global spread of the internet is encouraging, but wider access alone won’t close the data gap. This interactive visualisation illustrates how the digital divide has evolved.

Based on data elaborated by UC Davis's Prof. Hilbert, the London based outlet SciDev.Net (Science & technology for global development) has elaborated an interactive animation that allows users to explore the evolution of the digital divide in terms of subscriptions and bandwidth between 1986 and 2013.
