Visual Capitalist Creator Program launch

Here at Visual Capitalist we stand for a world where data can be better understood by everyone. Over the last decade, we’ve published a new data visualization almost every day and now have around 3,000 on our website—all available for free.

But today, we’re taking this to a new level with the Creator Program by Visual Capitalist, which gives you access to a brand new curated feed of charts, infographics, motion graphics, and interactives made by world-class experts from around the world.

The Creator Program opens up our site to talented people outside of Visual Capitalist who share our commitment to beautiful, digestible visuals based on reliable data. This will allow us to publish even more great content for you and at the same time empower Creators by giving them an audience and compensating them fairly for their work.

All the best,

Jeff Desjardins
Editor-in-Chief

I’m delighted to be part of the Visual Capitalist Creator Program. Unlike some other experiences I’ve had, Visual Capitalist has paid me for my work, credited me, and got my visuals in front of their audience. It really is a win-win.”

Best Visualizations of May on the Voronoi App

We round up the most popular, most discussed, and most liked visualizations of the month on Voronoi, our new data storytelling platform.

Published

on

At the end of 2023, we publicly launched Voronoi, our free new data discovery app!

The initial response from both users and creators has been incredible. We now have millions of in-app views, and there are already more than 1,000 interesting visualizations to discover, many of which will never be published on Visual Capitalist.

For that reason, we’ve chosen to highlight some of the most popular visualizations and creators from May in this roundup. To see them and many others, make sure to download the app!

Let’s take a look at a popular creator worth highlighting, as well as the most viewed, most discussed, and most liked posts of the month.

POPULAR CREATOR

USAFacts

Visual Capitalist isn’t the only creator on the Voronoi app.

Instead, it features incredible data-driven charts and stories from many of the world’s best data sources, like USAFacts.

USAFacts

USAFacts, which was founded by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, is a non-profit that aims to collate public sources of U.S. data in one place in a non-partisan way. And on Voronoi, you can see visualizations and the data behind them on an exciting range of topics:

  • How the U.S. government spends tax dollars
  • Graphing U.S. aid and assistance going to Ukraine and Israel
  • How many encounters happen at U.S. borders each year
  • The cost of major natural disasters in the U.S. by year

Make sure to follow USAFacts on Voronoi today to see many charts, maps, and visualizations on a wide range of U.S.-related topics.

Ranked: The 20 Countries With the Most Debt to China

Which countries are racking up the most external debt to China?

This visualization from Visual Capitalist was our most viewed of the month, using the latest available data from the World Bank.

Countries in the Most Debt to China

Much of this debt was taken on to fund infrastructure projects as part of China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative, and some countries are running into difficulties repaying these large sums of money.

It should also be noted that this visual focuses in on external debt (i.e. loans made directly to countries) and does not cover publicly-traded securities like U.S. Treasurys.

The Valuation of Nvidia in Perspective

Chipmaker Nvidia has been on a tear recently.

At this time last year, it became a $1 trillion company—and now it’s even bigger, dwarfing many well-known companies in the tech space (including other chipmakers like Intel and AMD) in market capitalization.
