Data-visualization: Charting The Banking Crisis

The web log And Still I Persist has made two interesting implementations available that demonstrate how data-visualization tools similar to Gapminder’s Trendalyzer can be used to show patterns in vast amounts of data.

They used OSG’s Boomerang technology to show changes in banks’ mortgage portfolios based on the data the banks have reported to the FDIC. The first chart / animation shows the amounts of 90+ days late mortgages and the second one visualizes the changed amounts in mortgages that banks have charged-off over time.

There is a larger scale version of the animations with more banks and additional data-sets available here.

    Since 1997 two NGOs – the US-based Electronic Privacy Information Center and the UK-based Privacy International – have surveyed and assessed the state of surveillance and privacy protection in 47 countries. The annual Privacy & Human Rights Report compiled from their findings has by now become one of the most comprehensive surveys of global privacy and citizen rights.

    Their “most recent report” published a few days ago has been created with the help of more than 200 experts from around the world and has grown to 1,100 pages. It shows trends of
