Great interactive infographic website from GE for their Plug Into The Smart Grid ad campaign. Beautiful graphics, fast, clean interface and all-around good job. The viewer can change the setting, and see the infographic results change in response.
My son loves the Augmented Reality part! Not really infographic, but fun.
Dan Meth did a great job creating his own personal Trilogy Meter showing his personal enjoyment of movies released as a trilogy. This shows that Dan never likes the 3rd movie as much, so he should just stop spending the money.
Although this is based on Dan's personal ratings for each movie, there's no reason why something like this couldn't be done with more official data like critic ratings or box office dollars.
Thanks for the link Jesper and Daniel!
Check out Planets, an interactive solar system visualizer. It lets you change the focal point so you can see the planetary motions as if you were standing on any of the planets. A great way to understand retrograde motion.
Thanks Paul, for the link.

Very detailed infographic from the Washington Post showing how the proposed stimulus package is broken out between ares of spending and tax cuts.
SOURCE: Congressional Budget Office | Reporting by Karen Yourish, graphic by Laura Stanton - The Washington Post - February 01, 2009
The centerpiece of President Obama's domestic agenda is an $819 billion economic stimulus plan. The Senate will consider the measure this week, with an eye toward the amount of tax cuts and spending. Republicans and Democrats spar over what to consider a tax cut. An analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office tallies the tax-cut portion to be significantly less than the one-third Democrats claim it to be.
