trends in data visualization

with one comment

No matter how much data you collect, it has zero value unless it is converted to useful information. Visualization then is a very important component of this transformation, especially for complex data. To see what I mean checkout these three beautiful examples:

The first is a wind map. It collates wind data, from the National Weather service, for every state in the continental United States, and presents them as a dynamic flow patterns. Awesome!

The second is the History of the World in 100 secs.

The third is from GapMinder . Hans Rosling is the mastermind behind this stuff.
