Hans Rosling (1948-2017)

Hans Rosling (1948-2017), a Swedish medic and statistician, and most recently a professor of international health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, died a year ago. Rosling made superb presentations that combined animated data visualisations with humour and deep humanitarian compassion. With his son and daughter in law he built Gapminder - a software and institute with a focus on tools for showing development data.
