I came across today an old sketchbook page that I had on file, from when I was work on this project:
European Debt Crisis: GDP & Government Debt Visualization (2002 - 2011)
Although this isn’t the best way of displaying this type of data over time, I wanted to see if I could build the original infographic to be time based.
It’s interesting to see how GDP and debt have increased over a decade, however I wish I had the data to do this visualisation over a longer period of time.
Although it might not look much different, I’ve completely redone the website from scratch in HTML/CSS (as pose to using a web editor program).
However, I’ve added 1 new piece (the competition project) and there’s been changes to the layout.
Interactive version of the European Debt Crisis infographic:

This is probably the first big project I have produced using the Processing programming language. I originally wanted to do this for the Information is Beautiful Awards challenge, but I didn’t have the time or confidence to get it done in code. However now this is done, I can maybe start at exploring other ways to make the data interactive. My next plan is to try it out as being an animated time-based graphic.
Updated and improved “European Debt Crisis: GDP & Debt” Info graphic
After coming third place, I’ve had a couple of mistakes pointed out to me about my work. So I decided to go back it to fix and refine the visualisation.
I’ve changed the colours and fixed the text a bit. Also instead of representing ‘Debt %’ through area, I’ve done it by percentage of the area of the GDP block’s width.
