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.
I found three different images showing the complex network of ownership between the automotive companies. Three different attempts at making these complex relationships easier to understand. This first one is a scan from a magazine, but I can't find any reference to which actual magazine it came from. Charted out like a subway map, it's pretty easy to follow.
This next one from Too Many Cars is charted like a family tree, or a mind map. It's the easiest the follow, but probably the least aesthetically pleasing. Online the image is broken into smaller pictures so you can zoom closer, but is also available as a large poster in PNG or PDF formats. The data for this one is from 2006, and is the most current of the three.
This last graphic claims to show the ownership mix in the auto industry as a form of bubble chart, but I can't find any date or source data link. I think the bubble sizes represent something, like size of the company or ownership, but I can't tell. So I can't tell how accurate this is. The image is on Tinypic.
Found on Visual Complexity, this chart from 1924 is an interesting variation of an organization chart. With the authoritarian leader in the center, the subordinates are mapped outward from the center. Rings at different radii show peer level responsibility.
In 1984, the government broke up "Ma Bell" as a monopoly. Since then it has slowly be pulling back together. This infographic really puts all the pieces back together in a simple way that you understand immediately. Kind of like a free-form timeline, instead of the traditional, left-to-right timeline visual. The AT&T brand name is still so strong, Cingular chose to rename all of their stores AT&T after their recent merger.

Some Computer Science professors analyzed one week of e-mail traffic from Enron (about 500,000 emails) in May 2001 looking for patterns that would help investigators narrow down their search. This infographic is the result showing the email connections between employees
Portfolio.com has a number of good interactive infographics on their News & Markets/Multimedia page.
This Salary Comparison is simple but hugely informative showing the difference in number and visual representation of size, but also over time as you move the slider on the left. In 2005 the difference between the average worker and the CEO is so large it doesn't fit on the screen anymore. But that is down from 2000 when the difference was the largest at 548x.
