North Korea & WikiLeak's Secret Cables
This map from the New York Times (published Dec. 6, 2010) shows the information the NYT found in the secret cables that WikiLeaks recently released. I like how the NYT broke the information down into categories and put each category on its own map. If these maps had been combined, the arrows would have been very distracting. The countries highlighted would have been indistinguishable for different categories. I think the simpleness of different maps tremendously helps what this infographic is trying to portray. Interactivity would have been overwhelming.
