Data Visualization for Social Good

John Heisler recently participated in a project with Viz For Social Good, a platform for data visualization enthusiasts who aspire to empower mission-driven organizations and increase awareness of social issues. Viz for Social Good partnered with the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) to promote the use of visualizations in hopes of creating awareness of the dire situation faced by refugee and migrant children around the world. John’s visualization focused on understanding the migration volume, gender make-up, and direction of refugee children between 1990 and 2015.
