Volatility in the Eurozone crisis

Information is Beautiful challenge entry

Hosted by The Information is Beautiful Awards in partnership with the Guardian Datablog, the visualisation challenge focused on bringing into light some of the stories revolving around the European debt crisis. The entry was awarded second place with the following comment by the judges:

“Jane came up with an clever and elegant technique to show the motion of data over time in a static image – and simultaneously tell the story of crashing euro nations. Simple and colourful and creative.”
