Hi everyone,

March brought a lot of exciting content and new features that we want to catch you up on!

This feature was requested again and again by users from around the world and we’re thrilled to announce it’s finally here: you can now display region labels directly on your projection maps and even specify certain labels to show or hide.

World Health Day
We were inspired by this year’s World Health Day campaign “Our planet, our health” to examine data on air pollution’s distribution and effects to understand how one of urbanization’s most harmful consequences can impact our health.

Our first customer story: Finance Uncovered
We worked with the investigative publication Finance Uncovered to showcase some of the insights revealed by the leak known as the Pandora Papers. Through maps, surveys and stories, we managed to visualize over two decades of financial data on anonymously owned properties in the UK.

Upcoming webinars
Our “Tea Break” webinars – available to all users – are a great way to learn about new parts of the Flourish world. On April 12th we did an overview of the “Heatmap” template and you can watch the recording here. To finish off this month we’ll teach you “How to flourish at data storytelling” (pun intended!) on April 26th, then we’ll start May with a session on “Five useful Flourish tips and tricks”. Join us to learn more about how to make the most of your Flourish visualizations.

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