Comments: “This piece goes beyond the motion graphics category; it’s a marriage of multiple elements that tell the story in a standard-setting, exemplary way. It connects data to a specific person or specific perspective of a people. You see what is going to happen to them and then you see a broader view, which is no easy feat. It’s better than just thinking of this topic as points on a map. The Times thought of something that not everyone would think of doing and does it well. This is perfection of the use of data visualization in motion graphics.”
