A PDF, my example is on page 9: [link]
A previous visualization, which my project draws inspiration from: [link]
This is so cool. When you think about it, the gathering of information is probably not terribly difficult, but the visualization works so well:
Here’s a cool and quite effective infographic on the republican nominees. Again, its the NYTimes data viz department doing a great job. Check it out here (no clever images to go along with it, unfortunately).
I dunno if anyone’s seen this yet, but it’s a pretty clever little tool. Although I haven’t used it, from what I understand it basically provides a WYSIWYG editor for infographic creation (just what we need, more people producing infoporn!) What’s especially cool in my opinion is the level of interactivity they allow. Click on some of the examples near the bottom to check it out.
I went looking for what people had already done in the realm of ‘mapping happiness,” and came across the NYTimes own project. It’s a fairly literal representation of the data they are provided with, but its interesting nonetheless.
This is a great short article and video about the practice we are now engaging in – visual storytelling.
This is a really cool interactive map – check out where people move to from your hometown, or where they came from. Its only flaw in my opinion is that it takes a bit of exploration to actually see the trends. For instance: try clicking on some tiny counties in Kansas and compare to those on on the Northeast coastline.
This is a post from Edward Tufte about music visualization. It seems to be dealing with a lot of things similar to what we are doing, so give it a look!
I went out in search of some infographics that defy our expectations of medium — one of the first that I came across was this really well-executed piece from Pentagram. It was shown in the Tate Modern in London, and you can read a little more about it in the attached article. Overall, a really cool way to show data. [Link]
