Monocle | Creating a digital environment from a paper based survey.
We are big fans of Monocle magazine, a global magazine covering everything from politics to start ups and a variety of topics in between.
The July/August 2016 edition gave way to the third survey to determine the top 25 cities. The guide is a brilliant and informative read but it made us want to find out more and compare these cities at a glance.
The advantage of creating a digital environment means the end user can interact and compare information across the cities, giving a more globalised view, which provides a much richer experience.
The dedicated exploratory visualisation adds a further dimension and enables users to visualise the relationship between a variety of factors. For example, how do the number of hours of sunshine affect how high the cities are ranked? This was just not possible in the print version.
