amfAR Annual Report

For their annual report the amfAR, the foundation for innovative AIDS Research published a world map displaying the breadth of their activities during 2008.

The visualization maps all the grants, fellowships and awards of the fiscal year 2008. The projects are represented as dots color coded by the program areas Research, MSM Initiative, Treat Asia and Advocacy & Outreach. Clicking on a dot opens up a detailed view on the project showing a description, context and place. The visualization was created by Kelli Anderson using Flash and a static dataset about the activities of amfAR.

While the interaction model is reduced in functionality and the complexity of data is rather low, the visualization gives quick access to project information nonetheless. I would love to see the projects linked to more in-depth information and maybe have the subsequent years in there for comparison.
