One week of The Guardian: Interactive visuals

Since I put together the One Week of The Guardian statistics, I’ve been playing alot with sketching up alot of static visuals. I’ve also been playing around with some interactive visuals using the ManyEyes visualisation software. I ended up with some really cool results.
