Another infographic advertisement from Elliance.com to share around your office. How do the different Web2.0 services available today address the different needs within a company? An ideal graphic to share with the people in your organization that don't really understand how they can use these new web services.
Elliance is posting a weekly series of infographics on their site to help explain their services.
Elliance.com is posting a weekly series of infographics to help explain and advertise their SEO services. These graphics talk directly to corporate individuals that want better websites, but don't design websites themselves.
A great way to use infographics to talk to your target customers, and I think it shows how well Elliance knows their target audience.
You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web.It's on their multimedia section of the website, but the only multimedia aspect it has is zoom, which is a little disappointing.
Thanks Oliver for sending me the link!
From the Telegraph in the UK, the idea is to use a kite to help pull a ship across the ocean. by using the wind power at high altitudes the ship would save on energy consumption.
Its inventor, Stephan Wrage, a 34-year-old German engineer, claims the kite will significantly reduce carbon emissions, cutting diesel consumption by up to 20 per cent and saving £800 a day in fuel costs.Found on digg.com
This image was real popular on Digg.com this week. It's hosted on tinypic.com, but there's no author listed.
I love simple infographics like this that use a visual metaphor to instantly get the point across. You can tell someone that the price of gas is comparable with Coke, but putting gas in the Coke signature bottle will get more people to understand the message.
My own reaction was probably the opposite of what the author intended. My first thought is "Coke costs how much?!?" I know there is a lot more expense in producing gasoline than there is in producing Coke. They must really be marking the price up a lot for brown sugar-water.
There is a similar analogy in the U.S. regarding bottled water. Some bottled water brands are now more expensive than gasoline! How is that possible?!?
I found reference to this graphic by Zohar Manor-Abel on smashingmagazine.com.
What is the connection between 3 celebrities, 35 corporations, 40 subsidiaries and more than 300 brands? Global business interests make up a complex network of connections between corporations from around the world. Corporate Connection, intends to shed light on 'who owns what' in the lobal marketplace and on the intricate nature of the world wide "business" web.
Found originally on Digg Images, this one is hosted on Steven Hilton's website (the author).
I guess you could call this a Mind Map style, but it's more like a Battlefield style infographic. I really like how it shows the products that multiple competitors are challenging Microsoft with and the associated product on the Microsoft side that is being challenged.
I can't tell if Savvygraph.com is part of Amazon.com, or if this is a separate company running this. It takes any Amazon.com search terms you enter and charts the results on an X-Y chart showing the Average Rating and the total Number of Ratings.
It's fairly interactive. You can limit the price range using the sliders at the top, and when you hover over any of the pins you get the product image. Clicking on the pin takes you to that item on Amazon.com. Clicking on any of the links on the right limit the search to a smaller subset based on your choice (like a particular brand).
EDIT: I did receive an email from the author who confirmed that the site is totally separate from Amazon.com. Thanks Dave.
Holiday Infoporn from Wired.com.
Here's our theory: There is, in fact, a nonsupernatural Santa. It's a transnational corporation with one mission-critical fulfillment goal: Every kid who celebrates the holiday gets a toy on Christmas eve.Check out the side-scrolling timeline at the bottom. I think they should have included Chinese New Year.
