Putting a Price on the South China Sea

An estimated 60 percent of maritime trade passes through Asia, with the South China Sea carrying an estimated one-third of global shipping. CSIS wanted to produce a data visualization that illustrated the massive trade volume passing through these contentious waters, much of which is disputed by China and several other neighboring countries. We produced an interactive visualization that clearly displays the percentage of each country's trade passing through the South China Sea, including several ways to slice the numbers and the ability to view snapshots from previous years.
