Louise Le examines more than 300 languages spoken in London. Each map of London illustrates another language and the prevalence. 

She used x and y coordinates to plot each map on rows and columns. The tooltip further examines each part of the map. We love her simple use of color neat design.




Yuli Wg created an amazing timeline reviewing the changing feelings across age groups for same sex relationships. 

She used a case statement to create the x and y coordinates by date. Using Kevin Flerlage's no polygon method she created shapes to represent age groups. 




Tamás Varga illustrates the progress made from 1990-2015 to create access for water and sanitation in his Viz, Clean Water and Sanitation. He used x and y coordinates on two separate sheets then layered them on his dashboard to create labels for each small multiple.
The gradient background here adds a stunning touch.




Priya Padham created a visualization of 128 surveyed countries regarding marriage of men and women under the age of 18. She created calculations in Tableau to create her rows and columns. Color is used to represent women and men in various countries. These simple bar charts are effective and easy to read.



Soha Elghany reviews the deaths of journalists across countries from 1992-2016. She created a circular timeline for each country to record deaths of journalists. She used a dual access to create the  dots and lines for each country. She also used x and y coordinates and calculations in Tableau to index each country. 



Michelle Frayman created a beautiful illustration of team's defensive ratings compared to the league average for seasons ending 1997 to 2020. She used Tableau calculations to create the rows and columns. She also created a split area chart to color above and below the league average.
