This infographic/data visualization stretched across a spread in a Wall Street Journal feature ranking the largest airports in the U.S. from best to worst. We analyzed data from a variety of categories, including security-line wait times, Wi-Fi speed, average Yelp scores for restaurants, average fares, Uber cost to the local convention center and on-time reliability to find these rankings.
We also compiled data from an extensive survey of WSJ readers whose input on overall experience, ease of use, security, restaurants, shopping, airline clubs, bathroom cleanliness, electric charging outlets and other categories was graded and scored.
Denver Airport won best overall in the rankings, so I made their airport the hero of this spread, and set up a narrative where they are compared to other airports ranked in various, interesting categories. I also included reader survey information by creating scorecards of reader grades, and showcasing their best traveler tips.
I broke these graphics up into mobile-friendly AI2HTML graphics, and made a few social cards for sharing on Twitter and Facebook.
Bonus: I included a GIF of my process, showing my progression from concept sketch to completion.
