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 Visual.ly this year, in five categories: maps, visual reports, data explorers, timelines and scrollers.

EPI believes every working person deserves a good job with fair pay, affordable health care, and retirement security. To achieve this goal, EPI conducts research and analysis on the economic status of working America. EPI proposes policies that protect and improve the economic conditions of low- and middle-income workers and assesses policies with respect to how they affect those workers.
EPI was founded by economists who felt that the story of the economy is best told through the lens of working people and their families: if they are suffering, the economy is suffering, no matter how high the stock market soars. This is why the Institute has always focused attention on trends in living standards, including employment, income growth, work hours, wage and benefit trends.
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).
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.

LIFT Impact Report 2013: Building Strong Foundations–Working to LIFT people out of poverty for good. This Brilliant Visualization Could Build A Better Reddit. There are places on reddit that you might never discover.
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 (reddit.com/r/popping for those with a strong stomach), you might never actually discover the like-minded community just waiting for you by visiting reddit.com/r/news. 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. And given enough of a trend--say, 1,000 people regularly posted to both r/diablo and r/starcraft--the team made a connection between those subreddits on their map. About BKLYNR. All the Stops.
These days, the NYPD’s “stop, question, and frisk” tactic is under fire.
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. The data, originally made available by the NYPD, was recently compiled by the NYCLU. The Arc of Law. Out of Sight, Out of Mind: A visualization of drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004. Here’s Why Drug Policy Reform Is Gaining Momentum. How do governments know drug enforcement is working? 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.
