UN Global Pulse Visualization Challenge
Based on the UN Global Pulse 2010 Mobile Survey Data this visualization represents the Impact of the global economic crisis in 5 countries and the population Sentiment and Forecast.
Although dealing with different data types, the objective was to clearly represent â€“at a first glanceâ€“ the sentiment and forecast for each country in a set of slides.
Two types of linear gauges were used to represent in a scale of 0 to 100% the data.
The first and second gauges were divided in 4 sections based on predefined answers for question 1 and 2.
The third, fourth and fifth gauges were used to illustrate a positive/negative sentiment based on the answers for questions 3, 4 and 5. Due to the variety in the answers, a common denominator was found in the sentiment, rather than in specific answers.
In addition, each question uses a tag cloud (weighted list) where we can clearly identify the most popular sentiment in each of the countries involved in the survey.
