This month’s National Geographic has a nice article in it about the DNA variation in the population of New York. The article is illustrated by a nicely designed projection of the world which tracks the paths of human migration.
A little more searching at NationalGeographic.com for the phrase ‘the human journey’ brings up an almost identical map. The map in this months edition is clearly derived from this, but I see that the alternate version is dated March 2006.
If you’ve got a good picture – reuse and recycle!
The National Geographic and the Economist are my favourite main stream sources for continued excellence in articles that contain information and data visualization.
