I received my MFA this spring from Art Center College of Design’s Media Design Practices program. Before graduate school I worked on green infrastructure (green roofs, street-level rain capture), studied human geography at Dartmouth, and spent 18 years in rural Vermont.
I think the most interesting insight from this visualization is not about a particular region, or the relationship between literacy and military spending rates, but rather into the World Humanitarian Data and Trends Report as a whole. Where is the international humanitarian community most successful at collecting information? Where is it least successful? For one, it seems the United States barely reports statistics about anything.
