Create Your Own Ebola Infographics and Charts

By Eugene Woo, Oct 23, 2014

One of the key goals at Venngage is to encourage the use of data visualizations to enhance the story-telling process. We are big proponents of data driven journalism (or data journalism, for short) and we’re happy to see big leaps in public demand for blogs such as fivethirtyeight and NYT’s Upshot.

We would like to encourage other bloggers, publishers and news outlets to use charts and infographics in their stories as well. To that end, we’re releasing a series of charts and infographics on popular news stories. This week, we’re focusing on Ebola.

All of these charts are available for free and licensed under the Creative Commons license. You can copy, modify and share them for any use. We have included both a static image version and an embeddable interactive version for every chart. The interactive versions are updated every week to reflect the latest numbers. All of these charts are also in our infographics tool, so they are available for modification (ie, you can add your logo, URL or change the color of the footer). Go ahead and use them in the format that suits you the best.

If you have questions or would like to make a request for charts on a different news topic, please send us an email at: charts@venngage.com

The Ebola data have been sourced from Wikipedia, CDC and WHO. All data and sources are compiled into a Google spreadsheet that can be downloaded here.
