Description:  An interactive map of the Lake Chad area describes a complex situation in a visual and engaging way. The map itself gives geographic context to a collection of information and images from the surrounding areas. In addition it offers the reader a chance to switch between an overall bird-eye view of the region and an individual testimonial from a refugee camp.

Special mention: The map does a great job using themed icons to indicate different types of content. For example, a speech bubble brings up a quatation, and a camp icon summarizes facts of a refugee camp in the region.
