Iraq by the Numbers


From foreignpolicy.com, a really tall chart showing statistical information covering the last five years of the Iraq war. I'm not sure I like the idea of this big chart that covers so many different types of data. The information on the bottom half of the chart tends to get lost to the reader.

The Ebb and Flow of Movies

From nytimes.com. This is a very cool way to visualize the spike in movie ticket revenue when movies are released in theaters, and then slow down quickly after the first week. The graphic covers 1986-2007, and when you look back you can only find a few movies that maintained high ticket sales for more than a couple weeks. Star Wars Episode 1 and Titanic both had high sales for almost 6 weeks. Highlight and click any "wave" to see the details for that movie.

Summer blockbusters and holiday hits make up the bulk of box office revenue each year, while contenders for the top Oscar awards tend to attract smaller audiences that build over time. Here's a look at how movies have fared at the box office, after adjusting for inflation.
Thanks for sending in the link Dániel!

What if...


Craig Robinson, from flipflopflyin.com, has created a graphic showing many of the different paths/branches his life could have taken. Clicking on each character icon reveals text describing the event or deviation from actual events.

Who hasn't at one time or another wondered how their life could've gone in other directions if different events had occurred or different choices been made? These are the ways my life could've deviated from its actual path (the top row).
" Craig dies at the age of 34, killed by an angry swan" I found incredibly funny.

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.

LEGO Brick 50th Anniversary Timeline


Neat timeline of the 50-year history of LEGO bricks. The photos of the bricks as they were in each time period really makes this a great timeline. Plus, LEGOs are just fun.

From mapsofwar.com, this is a 90-second flash video showing when the major religions formed and where they spread across the globe. Great combination of a map with a timeline.

The Timeline of "Cool"


Found on Wikipedia, this is the timeline of what was "Cool" from 1500 A.D. through today. Apparently, the Beatles aren't cool anymore...

Nichloas Felton's 2007 Annual Report


Nicholas Felton has published his new 2007 Annual Report. I love the way he breaks down his own personal life into maps and charts. I had just posted about his 2006 Annual Report last month.

Race to the Moon


Cool poster I found over at historyshots.com shows the altitudes reached by all of the U.S. and Russian launches leading up to the 1969 moon landing.

From 1961 to 1969 the USSR and the United States were locked in a history-making race to land the first person on the moon. This detailed map explains the story of this titanic contest in a clear and informative manner.
