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.
Depicts 200,000 packs of cigarettes, equal to the number of Americans who die from cigarette smoking every six months.
I've become a big fan of Chris Jordan's work, especially the Running The Numbers series. I just noticed that he has added to the collection on his website with some new pieces! A friend of mine quit smoking this week, so in her honor I want to share one of the new artwork pieces.
I never really thought about it, but I'm sure the flight patterns over the Atlantic are actually this tightly controlled. Now the news that President Bush made some of the military flight paths available over the holidays makes more sense. The Transatlantic Superhighway is one of the diagrams on John Grimwade's Information Graphics site.
Nicholas Felton (www.feltron.com) has created his own personal 2006 Annual Report, looking back at his life during 2006 and using maps, charts, timelines and facts to visually track his activities. With pages dedicated to photos, travel, drinking, reading and food, he plots out his one-year history.
The family took our first Disney Cruise this year, which was fantastic! Here’s a great cut-away graphic of the Disney Wonder, but the other ship, the Disney Magic is almost identical. This graphic is a little out of date, because some things have changed. The ESPN Skybox is now a teen area called The Stack or Aloft depending on which ship you’re on.
The ship is actually quite large, so the spacial representation of locations is really helpful. You can get turned around very easily.

The visual equivalent of a thesis - work from my final semester in Visual Communications.
I came across this on Janine Swainston's blog:
The animated story of one man's epic journey, created entirely from public domain symbols. In other words, an airport story told in the language of airport infographics.
From the University of Sydney, Bachelor of Design Computing website, See My Voice was a project by one of the students in the program, Andrea Lau.
SeeMyVoice - Social Information/Data Visualisation (or infovis). SeeMyVoice visualises chat transcripts stored by MSN Messenger. It aims to highlight people's style of chatting and increase understanding of our online social interaction. Each person is represented by a coloured wave which ebbs and fluctuates according to message length and the time taken between messages.Great job Andrea! That's exactly how IM conversations go.
