Locus Insight working in collaboration with the International Organisation for Migration

As a large and globally dispersed organisation, keeping track of migration statistics and communicating the data in an accessible format is a big challenge for the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
Locus Insight has been working with IOM to develop an innovative solution to this communication challenge. Our world migration tracker ‘Where We’re From’ presents the big picture of the world’s 215 million migrants in an engaging and informative interactive format. We’re already getting some great feedback from around the world via twitter. Here’s a sample:
‘Brilliant – simple and informative’
‘Una visualización de datos increíble con datos de migración’
‘Excelente mapa de migraciones!’
‘el mapa mundial de la inmigración. fantástico.’

It is released today on the IOM newsletter http://www.iom.int/newsletters/issue04/ and will be featured on the IOM main website around International Migrants Day , December 18th 2012.
Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM’s programme budget for 2011 exceeded USD 1.3 billion, funding over 2,700 active programmes and more than 7,800 staff members serving in more than 450 field offices in more than a hundred countries.

This interactive graphic provides rapid access to the changes in budget allocations to public services in Ireland. As the Irish Government seeks to cut a further €3.5billion from the public expenditure bill this engaging tool shows where the cuts are being made. The graphic will be updated with the new figures as the budget details are revealed.
Publishing this type of interactive graphic is an innovative step for the Irish Times. At Locus Insight we were delighted to work with Ireland’s leading online news site to break new ground in presenting complex data in a clear and accessible format.
