“The Cost of Everything” – A ridiculously comprehensive visualization of money and cost. I wanted my project to be like this until I found that it had already been done…
“Percentage of World GDP” – charts GDP of different nations over (a long) period of world history based on estimates.
This is a really interesting, interactive visualization of all the actors who have appeared in three or more episodes of at least two HBO programs since 1997. Along the lines of what I’d ideally like to be able to do with my project!
http://daytum.com/ is an interesting site I just discovered through Nicholas Felton’s site (http://feltron.com). I haven’t played around with it much yet but it seems like it’s a tool for collecting, organizing, and visualizing personal data over time. Could be useful for anybody wanting to collect data for a future project. Everyone should also check out Nicholas Felton’s work, he’s an awesome designer who works for Facebook and has had his infographics published all over the place.
This is an interesting take on mapping… I don’t exactly know how the data was measured (probably a little subjective) but it’s nevertheless an innovative way of visualizing the experience of riding an airplane. Check it out!
TweetStats is an easy-to-use web app that aggregates individual twitter information into usage graphs and word clouds. If you’re a twitter user you should definitely check it out, it’s really interesting. Apparently I tweet the most on Fridays at 9pm.
