what-matters-most-chartistryI find this visualization absolutely captivating and genius; the key made from a wave of colors unites grace and functionality, and the maps are easy to comprehend. You can spot outliers with ease – for example, Georgia, Papua New Guinea, and Slovenia are among the only countries that value environment the most. Community is another rare top value with only Bhutan and Zimbabwe at a quick scan. What about jobs? We spend most of our time at work, so you would think jobs would have a bigger fan base, but I have only found Moldova!
