Very similar to the Flight Patterns video I posted back in October 2007, this is a video showing all commercial flight in the world over a 24-hour period. The previous video was only the U.S., but this one shows the entire world. It also shows the day/night areas and you can see the increase in air traffic as dawn rises around the world. Its from the Zhaw School of Engineering in Zurich.

Our friends over at XPLANE have done a fabulous video explaining what led up to the recent credit crisis in the U.S. economy. A great job simplifying a complex problem.
Thanks Parker, and great job to your team!
Watercube, is a new book by Ethel Baraona Pohl. The book is about the National Aquatics Centre built in Beijing for the 2008 Olympics, and has some cool infographics inside. Some of the graphics were contributed by architect César Reyes Nájera. A review of the book can be found here on www.v2com.biz
WATERCUBE: The Book is a complete monographic publication about the National Swimming Center for the Beijing Olympics 2008. With an exhaustive description about the Watercube we present a detailed study of the project. The book makes an holistic approach to the project that starts with a brief description of urban and social changes that China has been experienced in the last decade. These facts have encouraged the construction boom that made possible these kind of projects occur in cities like Beijing.
This page is one of the years of the timeline leading up to the construction of the Watercube.
Here you can buy Watercube, by Ethel Baraona Pohl, on Amazon.com.
Special thanks to Ethel for sharing the images from her book, and allowing me to post them on Cool Infographics!
From GOOD magazine, they created an infographic video about Vampire Energy, all of the energy used by electronics in your house while you are not actively using them. The chart itself from the magazine is fairly simple chart, but I really like it. It's effective getting the message across with simple graphics.
Josef Müller-Brockmann was a Swiss graphic designer and teacher, mostly recognised for his simple designs and his clean use of typography, notably Helvetica. This visualization is the result of a personal web research about Josef Müller-Brockmann and the international typographical style. It contains 3 key elements: (1) the research of information on the web, (2) chronological information on Josef Muller-Brockmann's life and links to the last part, and finally the last part (3) is composed of a critical article based on information found online. The project is in french.Thanks to Filipe for sending in the link!
