Nip and Tuck




From Many Eyes, this bubble chart shows the number of plastic surgery procedures per 100 people, by nation. Let's just say, the U.S. is one of the smaller countries measured this way.

31 Days in Iraq

This map of Iraq from the NYTimes.com visually shows the over 1,900 people killed in Iraq during the month of January 2007.

"The map, based on data from the American, British and Iraqi governments and from news reports, shows the dates, locations and circumstances of deaths."
The number has doubled since they did this for January 2006 which had around 800 deaths. Each figure represents an individual of the American forces, coalition forces, Iraqi forces, police officers or civilian death. The larger figures have numbers showing how many people they represent (which I think diminishes the visual impact). A smaller icon shows the cause of death. All the figures are connected to a location in the country.

I would have added some color coding too, but I'm guessing the NY Times had to keep it in black & white to print it in the newspaper.

World Clock Counter


You've seen these counters on highway billboards and other websites before. The World Clock from poodwaddle.com combines many of these counters together into one dashboard.

I've added a smaller version to the bottom of the right pane here on on the blog.

The Price of Piercing


The risks associated with body piercing from the Washington Post in November 2006. The information goes as far as male and female genitalia, but they wisely decided not to include those in the image. Why would you pierce those voluntarily?!?

The image shows obvious placement on the body. The number of squares represents the healing time necessary with the dark color representing the minimum time, and the lighter color showing the potential longer time to heal. I would have also showed the price to have each area pierced, but they neglected to include that.

Who would have thought that a pierced nipple could cause a "breast-feeding impairment"? Let's hope the baby doesn't confuse the nipple ring for a teething ring!

How to Spot a Handgun


Found on Edward Tufte's website. Edward posted a small collection of infographics from Megan Jaegerman during her time working for the NY Times. This graphic of Spotting a Hidden Handgun, was updated and revised for Edward's book, Beautiful Evidence.

Megan Jaegerman produced some of the best news graphics ever while working at The New York Times from 1990 to 1998.

World Drinking Map


From drinkingmap.com, this map shows the legal drinking age by country. For the vast majority of the world 18 is the legal age. There are only a few countries like the U.S. that have a drinking age as high as 21.

World's Most Dangerous Drugs


Another good one from Healthbolt. Color coded by class, and ranked by overall harm to the human body.

World Fatness


Another good one from Wellington Grey. Obesity across the world shown visually. The size of the little person’s body represents the percentage of people in that country with a body-mass index over 30.

Wow…are we fat or what? Are you going to finish those fries?

Hans Rosling @ TED 2007

Here's part two, when Hans Rosling followed-up his 2006 presentation with updated software in 2007. It looks like he's been able to get more data from the UN also.

He gets really excited while describes what's happening as the software animates the data about world health.

Hans Rosling @ TED 2006

Hans Rosling is a professor from Sweden who is an expert in world health, but has pioneered some amazing ways to look at massive amounts of data. I mean truly AMAZING. I can think of at least a dozen uses for this software to help visualize changes over time. Don't let the topic scare you, this is incredible to watch.

The Trendalyzer software (recently acquired by Google) turns complex global trends into lively animations, making decades of data pop.
This video is one of the TED Talks videos from the 2006 TED Conference.
