LifeMap

Ritwik Dey charted out his life from age 6 to 24 as an infographic timeline project, and shared it on Flickr.

I just discovered Visual Think Map, which is where I found a link to the LifeMap. I added it to my blogroll on the right.

Beer in Germany this week?


I'm headed to Nuremberg, Germany (also know as Nürnberg) for a trade show this week. Anyone in the area want to meet for a drink? Send an email to my Gmail account.

I thought this was great. This one image tells the whole story of the Pac-Man video game. No further explanation needed.

Microsoft HealthVault Xplaned


Microsoft enlisted our friends from Xplane to help visualize the theory behind the HealthVault system.

I would almost call this a 3D mind map the way it’s laid out.

Where Does the Money Go?


From the nytimes.com, this graphic visually represents how average consumer spending breaks down, and the color code shows how much spending in that category has changed in the last year. For example, Gasoline is 5.2% of an average consumer's spending, and it has risen 26% from 2007 to 2008.

As far as I can tell, this is actually a treemap, but in a new shape. More details pop-up when you mouse over each of the individual shapes.

Thanks to Tony, for sending in the link.

Fostering Innovation at Pixar


Only a little bit off-topic. This is a great interview with Brad Bird from Pixar on how they build an environment for innovation. The lessons apply to movies, product development, design and of course designing infographics. Lesson Six is my personal favorite!

Who Owns the Car Companies? (UPDATE)


TooManyCars.com has updated their family tree style poster of how all of the car companies are related. The latest updates were as of 4/1/08. They have also changed to better software used to zoom into the poster. Each of rectangles you see on the images will zoom in close so you can read the details about the connections.

They've really done a good job tracking down the specific types of relationships and the ownership portions between the companies. High-res PNG or PDF files are also available.
