CUP: Public Access Design

Public Access Design projects are short, intensive collaborations of CUP, an artist or designer, and a community organization that is working to break down a complex policy or planning issue that affects its constituents. The collaboration results in a visual tool that meets an advocate’s organizing needs as they arise—getting information directly to communities where they are, and when they most need it. The goal is to put more, and more kinds, of powerful visual tools in the hands of people working on critical social justice issues.

The Top 20 Interactive Visualizations of 2013.

Interactive websites are a great way to communicate visually. With modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, they now provide a nearly limitless multimedia canvas for designers, developers, journalists and animators to build interactive experiences. News organizations, non-profits, companies, and even ambitious individuals are producing incredible digital multimedia experiences as ways to get their message seen.

Here are 20 of the best interactive projects we discovered on this year, in five categories: maps, visual reports, data explorers, timelines and scrollers.

Where everyone in the world is migrating—in one gorgeous chart - Quartz

In a study released in Science, a team of geographers used data snapshots to create a broad analysis of global migrations over 20 years. The study was conducted by three geographic researchers from the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital in Vienna. Is personal.

Inter-American Human Rights System. The Inter-American System for the protection of human rights is one of the world’s three regional human rights systems, and is responsible for monitoring and ensuring implementation of human rights guarantees in the 35 independent countries of the Americas that are members of the Organization of American States (OAS).

Inter-American Human Rights System

The Inter-American System is comprised of two entities: a Commission and a Court. Both bodies can decide individual complaints concerning alleged human rights violations, and may issue emergency protective measures when an individual or the subject of a complaint is in immediate risk of irreparable harm. The Commission also engages in a range of human rights monitoring and promotion activities, while the Court may issue advisory opinions on issues pertaining to the interpretation of the Inter-American instruments at the request of an OAS organ or Member State.

This Brilliant Visualization Could Build A Better Reddit

Though we’re all familiar with the main pages, there are countless subreddits--niche interests hiding a sub-URL away from plain sight. So while you could be the biggest fan of watching pus drain ( for those with a strong stomach), you might never actually discover the like-minded community just waiting for you by visiting In response, Randy Olson and MSU Assistant Professor Zachary Neal have created redditviz, a map of subreddits connected, not by the obvious related reddits you might spot on a sidebar, but actual reddit user behavior. For eight months, their algorithm tracked where users posted across the network. About BKLYNR. All the Stops. These days, the NYPD’s “stop, question, and frisk” tactic is under fire.

All the Stops

The policing measure, which encourages officers to stop and search people who appear suspicious, and which is used in Brooklyn more than any other borough, has in the last month been ruled unconstitutional, curbed by a pair of City Council bills, and inveighed against by the Democratic field of would-be mayors. But with only long-shot candidate John Liu calling for a complete end to stop-and-frisk, some form of the tactic is likely to endure. This visualization, which reflects the more than 530,000 stops that occurred in 2012, reveals who is being stopped, why they’re being stopped, and what, if anything, is being found by the police as a result.

Here’s Why Drug Policy Reform Is Gaining Momentum

Generally by measuring seizures, arrests, and convictions—based on the assumption that the more drugs are confiscated, and the more drug users and dealers are imprisoned, the fewer drugs will be available. That assumption appears to be wrong. A new study by the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy finds that despite a tremendous increase in seizures, prices actually fell for most illegal drugs over the past 20 years—while purity increased.

ATLANTA – Stacey Calvin spends almost as much time commuting to her job — on a bus, two trains and another bus — as she does working part-time at a day care center. She knows exactly where to board the train and which stairwells to use at the stations so that she has the best chance of getting to work on time in the morning and making it home to greet her three children after school. “It’s a science you just have to perfect over time,” said Ms. Calvin, 37. Her nearly four-hour round-trip stems largely from the economic geography of Atlanta, which is one of America’s most affluent metropolitan areas yet also one of the most physically divided by income.
