Apparently by 2019, we will all live in an infographic world, and that's good news for us. Microsoft had the first public showing of the video at the Wharton Business Technology Conference. Some found Microsoft's video inspiring, and some were not impressed.
I love some of the ideas shown in the video, but much of it also felt like the magic of Hollywood. Because this blog is focused on infographics, I understand how much thought and effort from the designer goes into making just one infographic image useful and easy to understand.
Great animated video the visually shows you the changes in the F1 racing cars for 2009.
A fantastic computer-animated clip features Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel racing on track, as they bring to life the biggest rule changes in the history of Formula One. Last seasons car morphs into the current Red Bull Racing car, the RB5, showing all the bodywork changes from nose to rear wing.From www.automotivetv.net
Check out GridPlane.com. JD Hooge has posted images of some data visualization concepts he worked on with Google to look at aggregating social media topics.
I collaborated with Instrument to develop a series of data visualization concepts for Google. These interface sketches are are all based around a concept of aggregating and visualizing online media buzz across various social media outlets.
Thanks Edial for sending in the link!
Great timeline infographic depicting the rise and fall of different browsers portrayed as knights marching across a field. The data set used is available here.
It took me a while to find any information about the author, but I found this description on the Wired.com blog.
Here's a creative look at the history of the browser wars from 2002 through mid-2008. The infographic was submitted to Reddit by a user named BovingdonBug. He says he created it as part of an application for a graphic design job on a newspaper.Thanks Alwyn for the link!
Mike Wirth, The Beer Geek, created this map of award winning beers using 20 years of data of the Great American Beer Festival medal winners from 1987-2007. Originally created for the Lyke 2 Drink blog, it also shows the breweries with the most medals and the specific beers with the most awards.
Great work Mike!
UPDATE: Mike has put up an updated version of the Best Beer in America map.
This is very cool. Going back 166 million years to see each of the branches where we share common mammalian ancestors. The PDF is available for download, and is very detailed. You need to zoom a long way to even see that there is text naming each of the known mammals in existence today. It's a radial family tree that also represents a timeline as you move outwards from the center. Here we are:
ABC TV in Australia did a short video on the family tree hosted by Dr. Paul Willis, and he literally walks around the infographic describing different parts. Well done, and seemed very reminiscent of Carl Sagan in some of his shows. The video credits Robin Beck, a Mammalian Systematist as the University of NSW, of creating the family tree. Here's the link to the ABC page where you can watch the video, or you can click on the image below.
Thanks for the link Alwyn! Great find!
The Long Weekends Calendar was created by thenonhacker (Alwyn Balingit) and posted on DeviantArt.com. By plotting the holidays in both the U.S. and the Philippines, he has mapped out all the long weekends that need to be considered when creating project timelines involving people in both countries.
It's also good to plan vacation time...
Great job Alwyn!
Damien Lopez has hade two great images showing the evolution of game controller design over the last few decades. He also created another one showing the evolution of portable game systems. This was supposedly the link to Damien's page, but its not working for me.
