NEW Death and Taxes 2010 poster!!

First, Jess from WallStats.com has released the 2010 Death & Taxes poster.  This is one of the best infographic examples today.  It's extremely informative, and the topic has a very wide reach.  The Death & Taxes poster from 2007 was my initial post on Cool Infographics, so I'm very excited to see this update.   Now the 2010 version is available to purchase as a poster here. Great job Jess!

Second, I'm really impressed by the viewer code for the poster. It's from Zoomorama.com, and lets me embed the interactive viewer.  The built-in zoom is pretty nice, but the Quick Find index on the left side is the best part.


Roomba path long exposure photo

Paul Mathew at SignalTheorist.com attached an LED to the top of his Roobma and took a long exposure photograph to document the path the Roomba takes.  iRobot can tell you the Roomba gets into every corner, but it takes a visual like this to really prove it.
"Now here’s something interesting, I set up a photo camera in my room, turned out all the lights and took a long-exposure shot of my roomba doing it’s thing for about 30 minutes. The result is a picture that shows the path of the roomba through it’s cleaning cycle, it looks like a flight map or something. It really hits every spot!"
Thanks to Tyler at RoboticVacParts.com for the link!

Amazon Acquisitions infographic

Found on meettheboss.com, a decent infographic of the acquisitions that Amazon.com has made over the years.  Drawn like an org chart, I like that each branch represents another year, so it becomes a timeline.


One Trillion Dollars Visualized [infographic video]

New video based on the infographics from our friend, Jess Bachman, from WallStats.com!  Created by/for Mint.com.

Trillion is the new Billion!

Obama's Credit Card Statement

Here's another one I found while I was checking out gimmiethescoop.com. From Tyler Shears, this one visualizes the last six months of Federal Reserve debt as a credit card bill.


The American Dream/Nightmare


I really like this one from gimmiethescoop.com.  It’s pretty simple (it’s a 3D column chart), but it get’s it’s point across well.  The accumulated debt for the average American continues to outpace their annual income.  The concept of living beneath your means is foreign to a lot of people.

The GOOD Magazine Transparencies Archive

I've posted about a number of the infographics from the GOOD Magazine Transparency series on the blog before, but the great team there has now made their archive of graphics available as a set on Flickr!

Thanks to Amrit Richmond, the Art Editor at GOOD Magazine, for sending the link!


How Much is a Petabyte?

From Mozy.com, a pretty large infographic (as you might expect from the name).
We store a lot of data here at Mozy (15+ petabytes, in fact), but how much is that really? We put together this series of stats to help you understand just how much data that really is. Enjoy!
Thanks Matthew!
