In 2018, Caixin VisLab keeps purchasing high level data journalism works, no matter in breaking news, daily pieces, or in longterm projects.
2018 is a big year for China. We had the tenth anniversary for “512 Wenchuan Earthquake” and “2008 Beijing Olympic Games”. In memory of the two events, we published two projects, “Ten Years, 512” and “2008-2018: Olympic Venues at the Post-Olympics Age”. In October of 2018, several changes happened to China’s individual income tax, including the tax threshold increased from 3500 to 5000. A news app “Individual Income Tax Calculator” was developed for readers to get the best tax declaration method.
In the meantime, we explored more in important days, like the project “National Treasures In Museums” in International Museum Day, and “the Under-Discovered Alzheimer’s Disease
” in the World Alzheimer’s Day.
Several investigative reports by data visualization were made by us, like the series reports “How Far Is The High-speed Railway Station From You?”, “384 College Students Were Surveyed How They Got Along With Their Teachers, And They Said…”. , “E-Cigarettes Mist”, and “Why Are Patent Drugs So Expensive?”
Also, we believe that data visualization is quite a good way to do environmental reports, so we keep doing that. Several environmental projects were released, like “The Unstable Asian Water Tower ” and “Alarms From The Earth’s Kidney”.
