Data Visualisation – Mapping the world around us

There are two types of people when it comes to understanding information, ( I am positive there are more but it always sounds so much better when you split any complex system into only two groups ) those who understand it through numbersĀ  and stats and those who understand it through graphs and images.

I for one love the graphs and images. No, not the boring shite that Excel spits out, but the seemingly effortless creations that are classed under Data Visualisations. Recently Smashing Magazine published a list of their favorites. I thought I would highlight some of mine.

Ebb & Flow

This is the first Data Visualisation I saw and it rocks, it conveys with such ease the volume and weight of movie releases. It is quite reminiscent of joy Divisions Unknown Pleasures artwork.

Well formed Eigenfactor

Utterly beautiful, I actually don’t care what is being communicated here, on its own these pieces are just outstanding! The fact that they communicate relationships between data sets is just icing on the cake in my book? Maybe it is time to get some nice large poster prints done …

We feel Fine

wefeelfineAnother perfect representation that both converys the feeling of its subject as well as the data. They feel tangible and seem directly related to their data. Great name for the site aswell.

I spend a great deal of time working with Google Analytics and so often only get the chance to communicate analysis through numbers, about time I say – to start looking at ways of communicating to my clients just how beautiful there data can be!
