The New York Times produces many interesting and informative interactive graphics and multimedia. This is no different for the recent 2011 protests across the Middle East. The Times has several graphics for each country that protets have occurred.
Protests in Syria began in March. For Syria, the Times has a clear, concise image of the country with points labeling key cities where protests occurred. There are varying sizes of red circles on the cities that indicate the number of days of reported protests, in the last 30 days. Under the map, there is a timeline from March 21 to April 22 of key events and protests.
