The Tiger Census 2010

While this is a diagrammatic chart, not a map, it does have a spatial component so I will create a post out of it. The Indian Tiger Census results came out today, and it's heartening to know that there's been an increase in the tiger population. I hope this is the beginning of a rising trend, and look forward to more wild tigers in the near future!

I visualised the data as an exercise in using Illustrator and InDesign; it was quite interesting to actually use ruler measurements to accurately place the ellipses and the median lines. There are definitely faster ways of doing this, but sometimes it's nice to have total control over every single element on an artboard.
