The Size of Our World


This is a simple, but great infographic. How big are the planets? How big is our Sun? How small is the Earth? The site shows five different images on increasingly larger scales.

No numbers or measurements. Easy to understand. So simple, yet SO informative.

Digg Swarm


If you don't read Digg...shame on you.

For the rest of us, Digg has become an incredibly valuable source of information. But paging through pages of text for something to catch your eye gets old quick.

Digg Swarm was launched in 2006, and I have increasingly used it more and more since then. It has really grown on me. You can watch in real-time stories that get "Dugg" to become more popular. The visual size of the story bubble grows as the story's popularity grows. The yellow dots connected to the story show you who is digging the story, and the size of the yellow dot shows you how important that user is in the Digg universe.

Also, if the same person Diggs two stories, a connecting line is shown to highlight other story bubbles that may interest you. The connecting line between two stories gets thicker as more users Digg the same two stories showing a stronger connection.

Usually I start it up and let it run for a little while before I check it out. That way it has some time to build up some connections and story history. It starts from scratch when you start, so you only see the stories that are Dugg from that point in time and after.

Starship Comparison


Huge starship comparison image/poster that combines the starships from most of the poular scifi movies and shows into one graphic. Someone spend a lot of time figuring out the relative dimensions of these, and this really adds a new perspective to your favorite shows.

Includes Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Battlestar Gallactica (the original series), Farscape, 2001:A Space Odessey, and a few others.

Hydrogen Atom


phrenopolis.com

Cool website that visualizes a hydrogen atom, showing how much empty space makes up our universe.

The page is scaled so that the smallest thing on it, the electron, is one pixel. That makes the proton, this big ball right next to us, a thousand pixels across, and the distance between them is... yep, fifty million pixels

If your monitor displays 72 pixels to the inch, then that works out to eleven miles - making this possibly the biggest page you've ever seen.

Death and Taxes 2007


One of my favorite infographics is the Death and Taxes series.

This infographic visually breaks down the US Federal Discretionary Budget for 2007 into smaller and smaller bubbles. The actual values are also included as text, but the size of the bubbles instantly gives you an understanding of how the different budget items compare.

An online version in Flash is also available at thebudgetgraph.com

Just to be clear, this only shows the Discretionary Budget which totals $938 Billion. The total budget is $2.8 Trillion. Notice the circle in the background (just barely visible at the top and bottom) showing the National Debt of $9.35 Trillion.

One older version is the 2004 Budget.
