Hi everyone,

As the year comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the year that was 2021 – as well as highlighting some new Flourish features, should you have some free time to get visualizing over the holidays!

Flourish year in review 2021
In our annual year in review blog post, we look back at milestones across our community, product and company. Although this year felt like an extension of the previous one in many ways, we’re grateful for our expanding Flourish community and amazed by all the incredible visualizations you’ve created in 2021.

Introducing heatmaps, raster tiles and popup panels to our “3D map” template
It was already jam-packed with features, but we just can’t help adding more: our “3D map” template recently received some powerful updates.

Improved data joining and downloading
Merging two datasets into one based on a column of shared values has always been possible in Flourish, but we’ve now made the process a lot more intuitive and powerful – and added a functionality for downloading GeoJSON files directly from your data tab.

January webinars
Our “Tea Break” webinars – available to all users – are a great way to learn about new parts of the Flourish world. Our next topics are an overview of our “Photo slider” template on the 4th January and an advanced session on our “3D map” template on the 18th January. Join us to learn more about how to make the most of your Flourish visuals.

Can’t make it? No problem. You can find all the recordings of our previous webinars on our YouTube channel.
