The NYT's best data visualizations of the year

As we reported when the longlist went public, the superlative New York Times Graphics team was unable to take part in the awards as their editorial guidelines prevent entry to awards sponsored by commercial, political or professional associations. Nevertheless we think that the outstanding work they do deserves to be showcased.

Here are some of our favourites:

In Data Visualisation: The Yen, Won and Renminbi: A Triangular Guide to the East Asian Currency Wars
by Jeremy Ashkenas and Larry Buchanan

A great mini-viz: 3-D View of a Chart That Predicts The Economic Future: The Yield Curve
