A Dynamic Chart Showing the Flow of Refugees into Europe

Excellent use of data to portray this growing crisis.

"It’s been called the largest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II. But while the stories of people fleeing violence and oppression have shocked the world, grasping the scale of the number of migrants seeking asylum on the continent can be difficult.

That’s where Lucify, a data visualization company based in Helsinki, hopes to help. The company used data from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees on the origin and destination of all the refugees in its database over three years to create an interactive graphic of the mass movement of people into Europe."

It’s really beautiful! Once data are open, people can do things with them. I am trying to involve in OpenCare some people I know in Italy who are committed to open data in health care. Of course, it’s a legal minefield, but there you go smiley.
