Data visualization is pretty big nowadays. And why not? Information graphics are a great way to illustrate data in a way that is easy to comprehend and understand in comparison to just looking at lines of numbers (in most cases, some graphics are little tricky to discern at first). The proliferation of infographics comes thankfully as a result of free and easy-to-use tools that have been made readily available and now it seems no facet of any kind of commerce is safe from being catalogued. And not all examples of data visualization stay within the confines of digital space either. The information gathered for one particularly interesting data visualization by Charles Sowers for example involves the clever arrangement of various (612 to be exact) free-spinning directional arrows that change alignment depending on the direction of air flow to illustrate wind patterns. Even if you’re the kind of person who’d be interested in say… the frequency in which the words ‘hope’ and ‘crisis’ appear in the New York Times, between 1981 and 2009, there’s a graphic for even that too. Found here is a fantastic list of 11 interesting and gorgeous ways data presentation has become something of an art form.
