South China Morning Post

Using data provided by the Hong Kong Observatory, the graphic visualises 23 years worth of rain in Hong Kong, starting from 1990. It shows the daily average rainfall as well as any issued tropical cyclone warning.

This data visualisation was published as a back page in the South China Morning Post on May 22, 2013, coinciding with a severe rainstorm that hit Hong Kong on the same day. It was also featured on the Information is Beautiful Awards website.
