NY Times Data Journalism

The NY Times published a story called A Rogue State Along Two Rivers, which used maps and photos to explain how ISIS came to control large portions of Syria and Iraq. I like this piece of data journalism because it’s aesthetically appealing and it takes a super complicated topic and it makes it digestible and visual, and therefore easier to follow. I think without the graphics the story would be a lot less engaging and more difficult to get through.
