Who Owns the Car Companies? (UPDATE)


TooManyCars.com has updated their family tree style poster of how all of the car companies are related. The latest updates were as of 4/1/08. They have also changed to better software used to zoom into the poster. Each of rectangles you see on the images will zoom in close so you can read the details about the connections.

They've really done a good job tracking down the specific types of relationships and the ownership portions between the companies. High-res PNG or PDF files are also available.

On The Map


Found on notcot.com, On The Map is a cool project by Stefanie Posavec that maps the rhythm and flow of literary works into some stunning visual posters. Breaking a story down into chapters, paragraphs, sentences and finally individual words. Then color coded to capture the topics as they reappear throughout the story. The level of detail is really impressive. Click the images to see the high-resolution images from notcot.com.

Thanks Jonathon and Jason for sending the link.

Stefanie also created a number of additional visualizations of the same story.

The Calculators of HP poster


From the The Hewlett Packard Calculator Page.

This poster shows every HP calculator made starting with the famous HP-35. Each calculator is displayed with it's production start and end data, and it's project codename.
It's amazing how many of these I have actually used. This is similar to the Evolution of Apple Design...but with more buttons.

Lance's Last Tour


I found two good newspaper infographics from 2005 covering Lance Armstrong's last Tour de France on newsdesigner.com where you can get larger PDF files that make good posters. Both are two-page graphics (doubletrucks). The first is from The Oregonian (above), and the second is from the St. Pete Times (below).

Conquest of Mount Everest


Cool infographic poster from historyshots.com showing the many expeditions leading up to the 1953 successful team to make it to the top of My. Everest.

Every major expedition before the successful climb of Mount Everest is detailed on the left side of the print. The circles provide an easy to view key into the history of each expedition including expedition length, type and height achieved. The flow of climbers from one expedition to another is tracked with graceful lines.

The right side of the print is devoted to the successful 1953 assault. The entire expedition is mapped showing the exact climbing history by altitude of each of the main phases of the assault. In addition, the weather for each day is provided.

Superior Coffee


Another one from Beau and Alan Daniels at beaudaniels.com that I really liked. Superior Coffee is half blueprint, half illustration that helps communicate the Superior Coffee strategy of delivering a better coffee to customers and is used at trade shows. A good way to visually show the technical aspects behind a product.
